    Hi there,

    I have a pair of John Lofgren engineer boots that really need new heels.

    Is there anywhere online where i can buy vibram heels? or something similar for engineer boots (catspaw?).



    Thanks!
    Leigh

    Check out general attire and accoutrements. There is about 135 pages of engineer boots. Handymike certainly knows, but boot questions will get more traffic there.

    I would send them to a GOOD cobbler that does repairs. One that is also a bootmaker if possible.

    Someone like him for example: https://www.instagram.com/felixjouanneau/

    Don't trust your Engineer boots to someone who could do a crappy job.

    I took my Aero Jarrow boots to a local cobbler and asked them to replace the Viberg heel that was on it and with barely a pause he pulled a perfect match out from a box in his workshop.

    Top work!

    I'm happy that someone ended up following up on the recommendation. I contacted him and still need to send him some work after sharing the photos of what I need but I definitely knew he was good.

    Felix is amazing. He has resoled and hand welted two pairs for me. Stunning work both times. And 20 minutes walk from my office.
