Meindl Boot Fixing?

Discussion in 'General Fitness' started by Peter Horncastl, Jan 26, 2004.

  1. I have got some 2nd hand, I think pair of Borneo's Nubuk leather upper. However on one boot
    basically the lower four metal ringlet thingys have gone a bit rusty, they still do there job of
    holding a lace but I was wondering if you could get them replaced at a specialist, and when getting
    wet will no doubt further deterioate, anything I can coat them in maybe?

    Also regarding cleaning and getting the leather back to its glory do you have to use meindl products
    or will any nubuk products be okay?

    Is there a boot cleaning F.A.Q anywhere if this has been done to death before?

    I got a metal ringlet replaced at my local Timpsons. It was a cheapish pair of fabric Reebok boots,
    repaired two years ago and still going strong.

    Hi Peter

    Try these guys http://www.lsr.gb.com/home.htm They appear very professional but they do check things
    like the waterproof layer which may come in handy as your boots are second hand.

    I haven't tried them myself though I do know about them because of a recommendation by somebody else

    Hope this helps

    Just realised after looking through the archives on Google that there is another Fran posting in
    this group so to avoid confusion I have changed my posting name slightly

    I used this company to resole and service my Meindl Nepal Pro. Used their postal service and it was
    prompt, with good work on the new soles and waterproofing. Worth using.

    About to have their first serious outing in The Lakes this week.

    Hiya!! Pleased to meet you too! I thought I would be quite safe using my nickname as a handle in the
    group, I didn't realise there were quite so many of us about! lol

    I'm Fran as in Francesca. I live in North London but I'm moving up to Newark in a couple of months

    I can't say I know Rhondda as I have never been to Wales, apart from a long weekend as a school
    trip, unfortunately, though not for the lack of trying. My partner has family living in Wales, near
    the Brecons, so maybe this year we'll finally make plans for a visit. From what I can remember of my
    school trip the walking is fantastic there
