All Altberg boots can be resoled at the factory on the original lasts - the main thing is to keep the uppers in good condition. At our factory in Richmond we see boots which are over ten years old and on their 3rd or 4th resole!!! We also see boots which are less than two years old and beyond repair... The difference is the care of the upper and of course the harshness of the environment in which the boots have been used.
If the boot leather is in good condition then when the time comes the boots will be well worth a resole.
IT'S GOOD ECONOMICALLY...IT'S GOOD ENVIRONMENTALLY...ITS GOOD FOR COMFORT...WHY BREAK IN A NEW PAIR OF BOOTS?
