Fixing your riding boots

Getting back into track, I picked up my Sidi track boots, and remembered that before I stopped riding, they had developed a nice set of foot peg holes in their soles.
Direct result of having vortex rearsets, and that the frickin' manufacturers intended them to be like surgical blades and shred anything that touches them.

Anyway, did not feel like spending more money on new boots, I took them to the Austin shoe hospital. There, they agreed to fix it. The pics show what they did and how. It cost me total of $20.56 including tax.
Boots were ready in less than 2 days total.

If you are near there and need similar service, may want to think about it before dishing out more money for more gear. You can call them to ask about shipping too (I did not remember to ask about it).
IMO, they did a great job fixing them.

It says Goodyear them? That's cool, they must have good grip. Glad you got them fixed.

Not bad for the price! Sidi sells replacement soles and in their upper models have the replaceable soles where the rearsets bite into. Either way your job still comes out cheaper and just as effective if it holds up and sole doesn't break away
