COBBLERS TO RESOLE SIDIS?

Post by scorcher » Oct 31st, '19, 12:41

Anybody had their Sidi's resoled recently and can recommend a cobbler? Took my boots and new soles to my local one and he wasn't keen on doing them due to the plastic bits on the uppers around the heel area. He did say Timpsons was probably a waste of time too as they like doing even less.

Any thoughts greatly appreciated before I get out my grinder, superglue and nail gun :)):

No idea buddy... If you do find anywhere though, can you let us know. Often wondered if it's possible...
Don't care who you are, how much you have, how powerful you are. You still sit on the toilet with your pants around your ankles. Yep, it's a level playing field..

Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

Spoke to Clifton Cobblers in Bristol and they're confident that they can do them. Quoted 15 quid to do them.

I had mine done a couple of times by the cobbler outside Sainsburys, the ones that do keys etc. Never had any issues.
Sidis do tend to have soft roles.

Timpsons will do it aswell. Email from their customer services....
Thank you for your email.

We are able to attach Sidi soles they get sent to our work shop to be done.

In regards to the price the branch will be able to advise.

Hope this is of help.

Kindest Regards
