Grenson Fred Boot

it was time for a resole, but not a leathersole anymore. because off the use of the shoe it was better to use rubber.

we replaced the black midsole for a 5 mm leather, used the Vibram #2055 studded Eton sole. 

When working on the boot we noticed that the innersole was cracked en gone. We replaced it with a high quality vegetable tannend JR sole, and also reinforced the paper heel.

Red Wing #9011 Beckman

When we placed a order at DrSole he asked us to test the new Coffee Bean-bag long sole. And because the cobbler his own Beckmans where in need off some new sole's .........

we removed the Roccia sole and heelplate. Installed a leather 5 mm midsole that also takes over the place for the heelplate, with in combination off the Coffer Bean bag sole creates a beautfil long line from front to back. With a wider base for the heel we create a more bulky heel with a beautifel leather edge above it.

A half leatherstack heel tops the black/leather combination off and makes it together with the beautifel 8 year patina a great looking one off a kind boot.

Vintage Bikerboot

A rare find, a awesome vintage Bikerboot. The leather upper was in good condition. Only the leather sole and welt where gone. Eaten away, after about 60 years, by the rust from the staples. They used to staple the welt to the upper in those days.

We stripped it down to the upper, condition the leather, new heellining and straps. Blake stitched a new welt, cork, 3+5 mm midsole and a leatherstacked heel.

For the rubbersole we choose the DrSole Original Raw Cord half sole and heel, double stitched with brass nails and rivets. 

For the ultimate Vintage US Bikerboot look.

Red Wing Lineman-Logger #699

What we could do to change the all black look, but keep the rouged look, but not to bulky?

We choose for a 5 mm leather midsole at the heel and let it in a nice line transit to a 5+5 mm in the sole part.

Now it has a fresh naturel leather look, great in combination with the black line of the Vibram sole. We kept the original Logger sole shape, straight edge of the sole with the curved Woodsman/Lineman heel and a roughout finish.
