    Asolo boots sole issue

    Hey keen on getting any advice on the repair of the sole coming away on my asolo boots. they are in mint condition except for the sole. Are there any adhesives that work or is it time for new boots?. They are very comfortable and would prefer to repair them. The sole has is almost half of the boot.

    Had a similar problem with some Meindl boots. I had them resoled by the agents and am still using them.

    Loved my asolos but had to turf em out. Tried fixing 2-3 times including by a cobbler but it wouldnt hold. Likely due to the waxes in the leather.

    They have been going for several years. They took the whole sole off not just the Vibram black bit.

    Had the same problem with a pair of Asolos - very little use - so don't buy Asolos any more.
