  • Boot Repair

    I'm probably not posting this in the correct forum area, but I couldn't find one more appropriate. I have a pair of Pro Warrington station boots(newer style withOUT the toe cap), and The need to be resoled and have the leather fixed up. I've heard of Nushoe.com but they don't seem to have great reviews. I contacted Honeywell regarding a certified repair company but have heard nothing back. Has anyone had their boots restored and been happy with the results? Where have you gone?

    Thanks!

    get on your local facebook and ask if there are any local shoe repair shops around. We still have one and face to face is still the best way.

      If they need to be resoled, it's time to buy NEW boots.

          I know Haix will resole their duty boots, I?ve got a pair I?ve had for like 6 years now that I need to have resoled. The 3 year old pair I bought came with the same deal, send em in, they?ll resole and relace them.

          So id see what Pro Warrington has in that regard

            Yeah, they'll put new soles on the boots, but what condition is the uppers??? Fire boots are supposed to resist heat and liquids, I can't imagine boots that old not having fine cracks in the outside, and wear on the liners compromising heat protection. Boots aren't that expensive, at six years that's about $30-40 a year. I probably spend that much on Doritos. (which I need to stop eating)

              Indeed - I just bought some Bates zip up duty boots, with a composite toe, for somewhere around $100. The previous pair is chugging along just fine, too.

              Never a big fan of Doritos - and don't care for the ranch version...
              Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

              Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

                You and I do different things with our duty boots, it would seem. Mine don?t enter an environment that would wreck the uppers. I wear mine as duty boots: for around the station, running EMS calls, and when I?m pumping.

                The uppers on my 8 year old are still in good shape, cleaned and polished regularly.

                To each their own. However in my experience with these boots and what I use them for, they hold up great.

                  Actually, I was thinking of fire boots, we don't hear the term "duty boots" much around here, we call them uniform shoes or boots. And since we get ours replaced through the quartermaster system, we just get new ones every couple of years, or if they get damaged. Even so, you never can tell what will get spilled on them on an EMS run or if you get into some water in a rain storm, so my old pair gets relegated to doing hydrant and hose testing or other planned dirty work until a new beater pair comes along.
