Here’s the before of some well made, well worn combat boots. The heels were worn past the rubber and the bases were coming away from the boot itself. The wooden heel bases were discarded and new leather stacked bases were made. The old half soles were also coming off and needed replacing.
These are the boots with the new stacked leather heels. The leather is cemented and stacked then nailed from the inside before the rubber top lift is added. A dress weight rubber sole was chosen for it’s durability in rain and snow while still maintaining a nice profile.
