    Sole Searching (and heels too)

    Wondering if we can start a conversation about vintage/new old stock soles and heels. I see these being used on new builds, which I love, looking for more info on this. Are there any downsides to using these old products? Do they degrade over time? Does anyone have a collection of these, or a stash of interesting stuff? I have been visiting local shops to see what I can find. Lots of heels available, mainly dress shoe sizes, but not seeing much in the way of interesting half soles. Here are a couple of things I have. Not familiar with the heels, I have seen these Biltrite half soles before and I think they look good. What does everyone else have? Are you able to find stuff where you are? Info please! Thanks

    Cobbler provided, these are still made and available.

    Went from the white Christy sole to this. Cobbler did a nice clean job.

    Just picked up several pairs of these, looking forward to having my cobbler put them on something.

    I love the Red Wing moc toe shoes so I had my cobbler rework these black ones. New leather mid sole, old stock Biltrite soles, and a new Biltrite heel. Very happy with them. Previously had the standard white wedge soles.

    Picked up some nice vintage stuff from an old shop. Unfortunately the Cat's Paw half soles are child size, but they are beautiful and worth keeping.

    Had a local cobbler remove the old Christy soles on these Red Wings and add the leather mid sole, half soles, and heels. Did a nice job and I'm very happy with them.
