I do. Re-soling is relatively cheap. A good pair of leather soled dress shoes can be $150-200. In Alexandria, where I work, the sidewalks are old bricks, and they beat up shoes pretty quickly. I can give a pair of shoes to the local cobbler and he can re-sole the shoes, shine them and make them as good as new for $40-50. In fact I just got a pair back from him that is now on its third set of replacement soles -- 10+ year old shoes that look good as new. If I paid $150 over that time frame for the new soles, that saved me from buying 3 pairs of new shoes which would have cost $450-600. Well worth it if you ask me.

Actually, on my Do-Wins, one of the metal loops broke a couple years ago, and he put on a new one for me while I was waiting - for free. I've not had the issue the folks in this thread have had with theirs, but mine are older -- the old white ones with red and black stripes. 4 years with them and no sole issues, and I use them 2-3 days per week on average.

Re: Rogue Do-Win Problem

I did see on the Pendlay forums, they are totally re-designing their shoes and they should be out in the fall. No details were available, in case they wanted to make any further changes before sending them into production.

Re: Rogue Do-Win Problem

They better do some serious redesigning if they intend on competing with Reebok, Adidas and Nike. Heck, maxbarbell just dropped a wooden heel shoe for less than $100. Granted it is a little ugly, it is still cheaper than do-wins. I also find it telling that Pendlay still has a ton of their 2011 shoes in stock... guess they didn't sell so well.

Same thing happened with mine after only 7 months having them. A weightlifting shoe should last way longer than that. I asked to rogue about it, but they wouldn't replace them. Oh well.

Re: Rogue Do-Win Problem

For sole delamination, get some Barge Cement. Its the same stuff your cobbler would use. Most outdoor shops sell it

Re: Rogue Do-Win Problem

I have the same issue with the heel after about 6 months. I really regret that purchase now.

Re: Rogue Do-Win Problem

2004 Games model Adistars, owned since 2006, still going strong.

Think I'll get a pair of the red ones after the Games and retire my silvers!
