This is not REPAIR work but HOW to Prolong the Life of Your NEW Shoes, like these...
Adding rubber soles. That protects the leather more from getting wet if rainy and you are a few mm elevated now from the 'wet' area. This prolongs also the life as rubber does not wear off as fast as the original leather soles. Besides, it is a great safety feature as you will not slip as easily.
Both, my husband Pieter and I, have been practicing this as said, for decades. It really pays off!
Yes, Good Year makes for a great rubber sole that is skid free and Prolongs the Life of your NEW Shoes. Preventive maintenance and safety is always important!
