I ordered the CBT replacement Grey Cleated Soles for my CBT Lites after nine years of wear. I am hard on the toe ends and ground them down beyond the grey sole and into the black rubber inner sole. I took the boots and soles into my local shoe repair shop and asked the rather taciturn proprietor what it would take to fix them. He said "don't know till I open them up" . OK, so I left them there and picked them up a week later. Like new they are now. He had to "patch" in a new piece of the black rubber inner sole material and then had to obtain a special glue which he did not usually carry, to attach the new outer soles with. He charged me $75.00 and gave me a repair warranty that said if they ever come apart he will fix them for "no charge". I was pretty impressed. His limited english was able to convey that I should not have let them wear down so much before re-soling them. I will not disappoint him next time.
