Walking Boot Repairs, Hiking Boot Repairs, Refurbishment & Resoles


LSR have over 30 years of experience in footwear manufacture and design and over 20 years of experience carrying out walking boot repairs. Repairing walking boots is not just our profession, it is our obsession.

Repairing walking boots is highly skilled work, requiring not only the latest equipment and materials but also the experience and attention to detail that comes with employing time-served, qualified craftsmen.

LSR have been chosen by many of the leading manufacturers of climbing, hill walking and mountaineering footwear as their official repair centre. Our close relationship with these companies entitles us to purchase many original manufacturers' sole units resulting in LSR stocking the largest range of original manufacturers' sole units in Europe including Brasher, Berghaus, Karrimor, Raichle, Scarpa, Meindl, Danner, Lowa, Asolo, Zamberlan. But... the huge range of soles used by these companies is too big for even us to stock.

The cost of buying original soles is high, therefore we have also sourced standard Vibram soles which are a lower cost but are compatible with most boots on the market today.

During a resole repair your boots are first fitted on to a plastic boot last so they keep the original shape, and after resoling all boots are finished by hand, inspected for quality and then given a coating of a suitable conditioning and waterproofing agent.

IMPORTANT: Before sending boots in for re sole please wash and remove as much wax/grease from the uppers as possible otherwise the adhesive will not stick and we cant guarantee our repair.

Walking Boot Resole Prices
Resole only using a standard Vibram outer sole - not the original manufacturer's sole unit. The midsole is not replaced (per pair)
Resole only using the original manufacturer's outer sole/midsole unit or a fully compatible sole unit of equal quality if original is not available. Please note that the majority of these original outer soles are manufactured by Vibram so the bootmakers name may not show (per pair)

Brasher Resole using original soles - for Country Master and Superlite II boots (per pair). For the discontinued Brasher Hill Master and Superlite I models please call for original sole availability.

Brasher Resole using standard Vibram soles - for all other Brasher boots (per pair). In the case of the discontinued Hillmaster and Superlite I models we can fit standard Vibram soles provided the original midsole is in good condition. If the midsoles are not in good condition we are unable to offer any alternative resole.
Meindl Boots Resole - all models (per pair)
Scarpa M4 sole units. Full size range now in stock.

Any make/model resoled. Finished off with a coating of both conditioner and waterproofing agent to help keep uppers in pristine condition.


Whilst your boots are being resoled why not upgrade your resole to a full refurbishment for an extra £20 per pair?
Here's what you get in addition to the resole:
• Replacement of up to two lace hooks or D rings (without damaging waterproof linings wherever possible) • Failed stitching repaired (without damaging waterproof linings wherever possible) • Re-secure sidewall rands • Re-secure midsole • New footbeds fitted • New laces fitted • Finally, a coating of both conditioner and waterproofing agent will be applied to help keep the uppers in pristine condition.

'Thank you for making such a good job of refurbishing my Brasher GTX Hillmaster walking boots. I look forward to many more miles of comfortable walking. I will certainly recommend your service. Thanking you.' Geoff H.

'Thank you. First class Job.' Harry D. (Brasher boot repair)

'I received my Meindl boots yesterday and they have already had their first "walk". This email is to thank you for a fantastic job and superb quality of work. My boots are 13 years old and had become an extension to my feet, so I was downhearted when the original soles became detached. However, your repair have bought them back to life - hopefully for another 13 years!! Again, very many thanks.' Regards, Bryan C.

'I received my repaired boots yesterday. Excellent job. I am very pleased with them. Thanks also for returning £8 in lieu of overpayment. Excellent service although you were a bit slower than when we have used you in the past - but it didn't matter as I had other boots to use in the meantime and it was well worth the wait for such an excellent repair.' Carolyn H

'I received my repaired Berghaus boots today. Thanks for an excellent job, they really looks as good as new. I would recommend your service highly. Until I googled I didn't realise walking boots could be re-soled.' Best regards, Tony C.

'This is just a quick line to tell you that I am delighted with favorite old boots, which are now my new boots. I have given them considerable road testing, and they are better than new! I wish I had known about you earlier. Best wishes and many, many thanks to all the team.' Josie R.

'I have just receieved back my (Lowa) boots having received your full refurbishment service. I have yet to wear them but at first site the quality of the work that has been done looks excellent. Job well done. Thank you.' Chris S.

'Thanks very much for the return of my walking boots in such good shape in time for a major walk in Saturday!' Mrs T.
