My old pair of army boots that I use for the field need new soles. The tread is so flat that it wouldnt even pass a test for a tires tread. I want to replace the sole with the same one, #1276 Sierra. The only shop around me that Vibram says is an authorized repair center doesnt do boots!!!! I dont know why the idiots dont do boots when the only thing keeping leesville alive is Ft Polk.



I plan on buying the soles then finding a place that does resoleing.





Thanks!

Wait, are you in LA, or Germany? Your flag says DEU.

I can't believe that you only have one cobbler around. You might see about sending it to have them done. Worth it to keep a favorite old pair of boots still going.

I am leaving for Germany in June and I hate Ft Polk so much that I changed my tag to DEU.



I have 4 pairs of boots but I only have 1 pair that I am willing to use in heavy mud and in swamp. That is the pair that needs new soles and some work, the entire sole needs to be reglued at the heels.

You're telling me you are stationed at Polk but can't find a place to resole your boots? Here at Bragg there are literally hundreds of boot shops that can do this. There has to be a boot shop there. If the issue is you just can't find the sole I am sure you could find it online somewhere and order it and then take it to the local boot guy.

Order sole: http://www.frankfordleather.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=1276&Category_Code=Vibram&Product_Count=16  and take to boot guy. Very simple. I have had several pairs of boots sold when I was in the army.

If all else fails you ought to be able to find mountaineering stores in Germany that can do it..

Then again in the good old days of leather mountaineering boots most boot repair places could knock that job out in a few hours.

Just about any shoe repair place should be able to do it.
