Guidelines

  • boot with continuous stitching along perimeter

    Stitchdown Construction

    Your boots must have stitching around the entire perimeter of the boot sole without any gaps in-between.

  • boot with welt and outsole worn off

    No excessive wearing of Welt Around Sole

    During the recrafting process, we remove the stitching around the perimeter of your boot. If there is not enough welt we will not be able to reattach a new sole.

  • boot with cracked leather at welt base

    No Cracking at Welt Base

    During the recrafting process, we remove the stitching around the perimeter of your boot. If the leather shows cracking at the welt base, it is too weak and will not allow us to successfully reattach a new sole.

  • boot with cracked leather at toe flex point

    No Deep Cracks at Flex Point

    During the recrafting process, a last (plastic foot mold) is inserted into your boot to restore and maintain the original shape. The pressure will increase the size of the crack and/or hole, leaving the boot unwearable.

  • boot with holes in leather near eyestays

    No Holes at Eyestay

    During the recrafting process, a last (plastic foot mold) is inserted into your boot to restore and maintain the original shape. The pressure will increase the size of the crack and/or hole, leaving the boot unwearable.
