After removing the soles on these "Old Friend" house slippers, I decided these would be a good before and after. The old soles were brittle and crumbling and I was able to resole them with some flexible cowhide leather that had been deer tanned.
Now this customer has their favorite house slippers and can continue to enjoy them for a good while longer.
Christian Louboutins are well known for their distinctive red soles. However, brand new, they are very slippery and it doesn't take long before the red is worn away. Vibram makes a very thin red sole guard material that keeps that distinctive red sole and gives you some grip. This is a great way to extend the life and look of your expensive Christian Louboutins.
