Only the stretching pal. I'd only worn them twice before I ruined them.

Cheers all. I'm very happy with the work he's done so far.

Padawan, I dropped them off to him in person when I was in Taipei last month. I'll be collecting them in February when I'm out there again for Chinese New Year.

Feel free to drop him an email, he does offer a mail order service but shipping from UK to Taiwan and back won't be cheap. An easier route will most likely be Shoehealer or the other one that has been mentioned in this thread. I thought I would take advantage of Dr Sole as I travel to Taiwan quite a bit.

Just to note I provided him with the Vibram soles (purchased from Japan Laughing out loud) as he only sells his own Dr Sole soles. As mentioned previously Dee had a couple of his boots resoled with Dr Sole soles using Shoehealer as the cobbler, which also looked very good. It looks like they've expanded their range recently, what with them offering their own take on the ripple sole.

I'm looking for a good black replacement sole for these:


Any suggestions for something similar to that on the CP derbies?

Other alternatives are the following Dr Sole efforts:



Quite like the raw cord ones pictured on the boot there, but would prefer something that is solid throughout the sole, rather than with a proper heel.

Shipping is expensive for just one pair, hence why I bought in bulk (7 pairs).

Rirawin - fancy something with a bit more texture/variation to the sides, so Vibrams or the Dr Sole cushioned soles are outside options for the moment.

Drop Dr Sole an email and see if they can produce the 3060 or 3070 with the cork/texture look. The worst thing they can say is no!
