No matter how well you take care of them, your work boots are bound to take a beating. Even the most durable boots get worn out over time, especially the soles. You can salvage your boots by sending them in for repairs before it’s too late and the damage is irreversible. Resoling is a relatively inexpensive way to lengthen your boots’ lifespan. So how do you know when they’re due for a resoling?
First things first, not all boots are constructed to have their soles replaced. EVER Boots like the Tank and the Weldor are made with goodyear welt construction, and can definitely be resoled. Goodyear welt construction comes at a higher price, but it’s worth it for the added durability, and longevity along with resoling. Other types of construction, like cementing, are produced more cheaply, and don’t lend well to resoling.
Next, take a look at your soles and pay close attention to two things: the tread and the welting.
If you notice any of the warning signs listed above, you should make plans for repairs ASAP. If you wait, you risk going past the point of no return, where repairs are no longer possible for your boots.
Once you decide it’s time to resole, there are a few options available:
Don’t forget that a good pair of workboots is an investment, although they don’t have to be expensive. A good pair not only keep you comfortable, but could also save you a trip to the podiatrist. Resoling is a relatively inexpensive way to get the most out of your work boots and extend the lifetime of your investment.
