The best time to resole your muck boots is when you start to notice that the upper is separating from the midsole, or when the sole starts to deteriorate and the upper is still in good condition.
I will show you the simple ways that you can resole your muck boots and get the best results in the end.
- Step 1: Remove the old outsole
- Step 2: Trim the midsole
- Step 3: Attach & finish the new soles
- Step 4: Finish the new soles
What you need:
Remove the old sole
Before you start, you should first put on your safety gloves for your own safety. This is the first thing you need to get done when you want to resole your muck boots.
Since the old sole is no longer in use, you can go ahead to remove it and get it ready for the new sole.
If the sole seems difficult to remove you can make use of the knife mentioned above to make it easier and also use the screwdriver to take out the sole completely.
Trim the midsole
This is the point where you make use of your knife to trim the midsole so that it will be able to accommodate the new sole you want to insert.
While doing this you should be careful enough to not cut through the midsole too much. You are supposed to trim it for it to fit the new sole.
Attach the new soles
This is the point where you get your new sole and attach it to the midsole of the boot. When you are attaching the new sole you should be conscious and make sure that you face the direction of the thread of the sole in the same direction.
In order for the sole of your boot to stay stitched properly, you need to make sure that each side of the tread pattern of your new soles meets at the top of your boot where it is usually stitched.
Before you apply your glue, one thing I would recommend is that you tape the area where the new soles will meet, so that you don’t mistakenly glue it. Get your contact cement and ensure that you read the instructions before attaching the contact cement.
Apply a thin layer on both surfaces and let it dry a bit before you glue it. When you are done attaching the sole, you can go ahead to trim the edges with the sandpaper if there is any form of excess sole sticking out.
Finish the new soles
At this point, the contact cement would have dried. Now it is time you stitch the shoes so that they would be very strong for you. Ensure that you choose an extra-strong thread that is so thick and strong when you apply it.
You should stitch the shoe around till you get your desired result. Once you are done you should let the shoe get stable for an hour before you try it on.
