    You guys are probably right repairing them may indeed turn out to be a mistake. But at $300 + a pair I gotta give it a shot. The chief order me a new pair about 6 months ago unfortunately they don’t fit well at all, blisters after hour or so.
    I do appreciate all the suggestions though.

    Your boots will no longer be certified as compliant to NFPA 1971. Best thing would be to change boots. Try the new rubber boots from airboss, fit as good as our old leather boots (lacrosse & pro warringtons). They have been the best thing for our department. Better protection than any leather we ever had. We tried the new globe boots, but believe it or not the sole caught on fire... and started melting away...

    Good luck.

    I wouldnt mess with it. Have you ever walked through hot wet garbage form a rubbish fire? Now do you really want that getting in your boot and on your feet? GO get a new pair. It sucks but the way boots are made its not really something that can be repaired.

    Cobblers are a dying breed. Shoes, like just about anything else are disposable today. Fire boots may fall into the category...

    I would enquire if the warranty is still in effect or see if the manufacturer would repair them.

    Some dry cleaners that do tailoring may do boots/shoes, too.

    Leather boot repair

    Does anyone know if or where I can get the sticking repaired on a pair of leather boots? They are in relatively good condition but the stitching on one boot has come lose. Winter is not the time for wet feet.
