How to change the sole on the boots


In this post, we’ll talk about this type of repair, such as replacing the sole.
The reasons leading to such a repair are different, I will list the main ones.

When the sole is pierced to the hole, or simply broken in the place of the bend.
Yes, you can solve this problem by installing a soles, previously tightening the crack with threads, or by installing a patch on a well-worn place, grind it and install prevention on top.

The choice is always up to the client, the task of the wizard is to propose solutions to the problem.
I always evaluate the general condition of the couple. Very often, I simply refuse to repair.

Because I see no reason to invest good money in a good repair, in the deplorable state of the couple, in general.

To do as horrible as it is to reach is not for me.
Such an approach only at first glance seems wrong, as practice has shown, failure does not always lead to loss of the client, rather the opposite.
The client goes to another workshop, they do what he wanted, they often do not talk about the problems of the couple, which will soon come out.
As a result, a person first-hand is convinced of my correctness (it was not worth investing in this pair, it is better to think about buying a new one), while giving the money.
What workshop do you think he will turn to next time?
Let us return to the topic of replacing the sole, this pair was absolutely whole (I'm talking about the top of the shoe, the only problem is the sole), for this reason I proposed a complete replacement of the sole, along with replacing the welt.
At the end of the repair, care was planned, it consisted of cleaning the suede, fluffing the pile, tinting, bringing the whole couple in full order.
The whole process of replacing the sole and welt is shown in a detailed video, a pleasant viewing!

Continuation of the video on replacing the soles.

In the next video, you can see the final result of my work on this pair, with the care done.

Removing the old sole

Sole repair begins by removing the old sole. This must be done carefully so as not to damage all shoes, as this leads to unjustified loss of material and time, as well as damage to the welt, lip, insole or the insole itself. It is impossible to remove the sole from the shoes with the help of ticks until the fixing seams are removed.

To cut the seams that hold the sole and welt, use a shoe knife. The knife only in that case will be completely subordinate to the hand if the thumb rests on the sole a few centimeters in front of the knife edge. This position of the hand contributes to the stability of the knife when it moves towards the thumb.

Fig. 57. The position of the hands and shoe knife while cutting the old sole

If glue gets during the cutting of the seam, do not try to remove it by force, as this can also lead to damage. You can remove the glue with a solvent or by heating the glue, placing the shoes in the activator for 2-4 minutes.

Fig. 58. Activator

Cutting joints should be done only in places where the sole is removed. Cutting of the seams basically begins and ends behind the beam part of the foot.

Fig. 59. The surface of the sole with which the seams are cut:
1 - the beginning of cutting seams, 2 - the end of cutting seams, 3 - the beginning of cutting soles

After the seam is cut, the portion of the sole to be replaced is removed. The sole should never be cut before the seams are cut.
