Resole your shoes & give them new life.
Post your boots back to us at REAR 169 Fitzroy St, Fitzroy VIC 3065 with your contact details once you have ordered this item. Resoling takes approximately 2 - 3 weeks from the date we receive your Duckfeet. On occasion this time frame can be extended due to; an influx of resole orders, our Christmas shut down or the complexity of the job.
PLEASE NOTE: All shoes will be assessed on their suitability once received. Extra charges may incur if your shoes need extra attention.
Here are 4 handy things to know about having your shoes resoled.
1. Do it at the right time.
Resoling your shoes at the right time is crucial to their longevity. Your shoes should be resoled when the first layer of crepe has broken through; not the second. The second layer of crepe acts as a protective layer between the ground and your mid-sole
If these layers are compromised, you may break
through your inner sole
and create a hole in your shoes. We can repair this, however it will incur extra charges depending on the work required. The turnaround for these repairs is still 1-2 weeks.
soles are sturdy, supportive, and easy on your feet. 100% crepe soles are also more flexible; we only use this kind of sole
and advise all cobblers that this is the best option.
3. How it works.
Our trusted cobbler is an expert in resoling Duckfeet shoes & working with crepe soles. When resoling your shoes, we sand the bottom layers of crepe away, and glue your new crepe on. We sand back to the bottom layer of crepe to avoid sanding back any stitching, ensuring the durability of your shoes.
4. How long it takes.
Usually, your shoes will be returned in a resoled condition to you in 1-2 weeks, depending on our work load. Please allow a few extra days for AusPost to reach you if you are in a remote area.
