Field Repair

Field Repair

We see a lot of of well worn workboots come through the factory for servicing, but every once in a while a pair will make us stop and take a closer look. These Smoke Jumpers recently made their way back into our possession and we couldn’t help but admire our customer’s DIY repair job. Out in the field and away from civilization our customer was forced to get creative when the outsole of his boot started to separate from the midsole. Using a spare shoelace he was able secure the sole for the duration of his fire-fighting stint, until safely returning the boots back to us for a full refurbishment.
