Dinghy boot grip retread


Recommended Posts

My Gill Edge boots have been great but after a year of use, the ridges in the grip of the sole has worn in some places making them slippery at times.

Rather than just binning them, is there any way of getting a retread or glueing a new sole to the boot as I’ve seen done for climbing boots?

yes. Luckily, we have a great shoe repair guy where I live. I've had 2 new soles put on my gills and it's time for a third.

I went to my local shoe repair place and he wanted the same amount for new soles as it would cost me for a new pair of boots :-(
