The economics of resoling: Why it makes financial sense to resole your shoes

by Shea Gunther · 1 comment

Resoling your shoes can almost be a magical experience- you mail them off to a company like Resole America and get them back 8-10 business days later in better-than-new condition. They’re the same favorite pair of shoes, but they’re new again, ready for more years of service. For those of us who really love our shoes, it’s a wonderful thing to have more time to spend with our favorite hiking boots, leather-soled work shoes, or trusty fire-rescue boots.

But putting all of that aside, resoling your shoes with Resole America makes a lot of financial sense- resoling your shoes with us can be WAY cheaper than buying new. In some cases you can save over $200 by choosing to resole over buying a new pair.

Who couldn’t use an extra $200 in the pocket?

Here are a few ways to save big on your footwear. Don’t buy new when you don’t have to, resole.

That makes a lot of sense. It is a lot cheaper and ecologic wise to have your shoes resole. Not only that but also we can keep our favourite shoes for a long time.
