My Danner are a good fit and comfortable. Had to put on a Compeed plaster on once when the laces were too loose and the top of the boot rubbed against back of my leg. Otherwise, not had any issues. Would def wait a bit till I tackle Ben Nevis in them though Laughing out loud

Yeah my Mountain Light 2’s gave my ankles a beating for about the first month but now they’re perfect, done all the 3 peaks in them without a problem.

I went up half a size in them, and in my Danner Lights too, find them to fit small if anything

Anyone had a pair of trainers resoled? It possible or pointless?

I have a pair of Logan’s that were getting almost completely fucked so I boxed them up and stopped wearing them and just found them and want to get them back to life.
Not my photo but that’s them new Cool

Might take a photo and send to vibram academy see what they say once the world goes back to normal.

Any recommendations for resoling boots in the U.K.? Someone who’ll take extra care compared to Vibram academy. Cheers.

He isn’t taking on any repairs been in touch with him. He recommended dr soles? But when I looked up they’re based in Taiwan? Or I might be looking wrong place.

Not used them myself but lad from Clutch Cafe said these were good when I asked where they recommend.

Used Tony's for small jobs and they were fine. Some big hitter shoes there for collection which is probably a good sign.

Tony's Heel Bar has moved to Kentish Town, but is still the best in London.

They do collection from all the Jermyn Street shoe shops, don't know if they do home collection too.

Yup Dr Sole is based in Taiwan and he did a faultless job in resoling several pairs of Visvim boots and shoes with Vibram soles I supplied. He went as far as replacing the welt by hand-stitch too. Not just the usual peel off old sole and stick the new one on. Last time I saw him he said he no longer resoles with customer supplied Vibram soles, instead he'll only resole with his Dr Sole soles, which I believe some people here have had done in the past.
