Having previously had jungle boots successfully re-soled in Aldershot (Veitch's), I took my old (very comfortable but paper thin soles) US desert boots to Altberg in Richmond for a re-sole, to be told that they don't re-sole them; I was told that the softer composition material on the desert boot melts when they try to grind it off. I subsequently took them to a cobbler in town to be told that it would cost nearly Â£50 for a midsole and vibram outer sole to be fitted. Does anyone know a decent cobbler who can fit a midsole and vibram outer sole and doesn't charge the earth? Before anyone asks, yes I have both Meindl and Lowa as issued, but I still prefer my old yank boots. I also know that I could buy a new pair for less than the cost of a resole, but I want to extend the life of the well fitting ones I already have.
