| Most Cowboy boots are
resoled with half soles. "I wouldn't put half
soles on my own boots, therefore you can be sure that
I wouldn't put them on yours," Nick Valenti,
President of B. Nelson Shoe Corporation
Our Cowboy Boot Recrafting
As in all of our high-grade footwear recrafting,
we use the factory method on Cowboy boots. Each
pair of boots is fitted with the correct last before the sole is removed. Cork footbeds are stripped and
reapplied. Shanks are tightened or replaced. Even
the welts and heel bases are replaced when necessary.
We use a minimum of 22 steps in order to complete
our Cowboy boot recrafting process. This process
is very detail oriented; we actually pre-groove
a channel in the new sole before stitching it on.
This allows the stitching to lie below the surface
of the new sole giving you maximum wear on your
newly recrafted boots.
Wood pegs and brass tacks are
used in the rolled shank area in order to duplicate
the original production of the boot. The reason
that wood and brass are used as opposed to nails
is because nails will rust and the rust will cause
the leather around it to break down.
Finally, the lasts are removed, new leather pads
are installed inside the heel area, and the uppers
are treated with waterproof and refinished.
