I had some done there a while back and it was a lot cheaper. Not sure if it's a massive price rise or a more complex job for some reason?



Red Wings for me today

I have some black suede chukka's that need re soling. Anything I should/shouldn't be going for? Are there anything other than the standard soles that are worth a look at?

I spoke to him in the week about resoling my Virgil’s and he said treating the suede upper was part of the service, so I’d assume so yeah.

Seemed like a nice fella on the phone, was going to head up next week but not sure if he’ll have to shut down now for the time beingPuzzled

Saphir Invulner is decent, best thing is actually getting their suede cleaner products and brush set though I reckon.

Any recommendations for cleaning materials? Just ordered these and need to tidy up some parts I think when they arrive. Thinking Saddle Soap at least, but not sure for the material/canvas bit.

They’ll get bogging anyway if your planning on wearing them.

The leather I am less concerned about, its the canvas material that I am keen to tidy up.

Anyone got these/tried them on and able to comment on sizing?

https://www.brownsfashion.com/uk/shopping/salomon-s-lab-black-quest-4d-gtx-advanced-hiking-boots-15444571

I'm a uk10 in salomon speedcross etc (eg low top trainers) but a uk10.5 in snowcross and 11 Bambas (eg hightop trainers)

Will I be a 10 or 10.5?

I think it is generally accepted that Salomon boots run at least half size small.

The cm size is normally not what you would expect eg UK 8 = 26.5cm not 27.0cm
