Dave Page, Cobbler . . . and miracle worker
In September, 2007 I saw several reviews about ""Dave Page, Cobbler"" and decided to send my Vasque Montana mountaineering boots to be re-soled. They had gone through 18 years of fairly hard use and the soles were in horrible condition. The upper leather was still in very good shape and you just can't buy new boots that are made with this same quality, particularly those made using Norwegian welt construction. I called Mr. Page and he explained that it would take four weeks from the time he received the boots. So, I UPS'd them from South Carolina and got an email that the boots were received. Four weeks later, they were returned. Brand new Vibrum soles and mid-soles stitched on. Boots were cleaned and oiled and better than new because they were broken in to my feet and ready for the next trip. The repair cost me $89; I would have spent two or three times that to get my boots back into shape. Dave Page, Cobbler is a soft-spoken, customer-oriented craftsman whose shop works miracles. But remember, quality repairs take time and you have to accept that. Bottomline - I am extremely happy with my dealings with Dave Page, Cobbler and fully recommend him .
