I've got a pair of Tony Lamas that are my everyday boots but they both need new heels and one of them has a hole worn completely through the sole so I'm going to need to send them out for repair. There isn't a local cobbler that is any good and since I'm not sure where to send them I'm looking for recommendations if anyone knows a good boot repair shop that takes mail-in orders. I looked over the Tony Lama site but didn't find a link for any sort of factory-rebuilding/repair service. FWIW, since the leather is in solid condition--bullhide bottoms and deerskin (IIRC) tops it would be wasteful to throw the boots out just when they're comfortable and well broken-in...

I have never sent my boots out to get repaired, always been able to find a place local... Might try other boot makers sites... Danner, West Coast...

I will give Leddy's and Mercedes here in Fort Worth a call on Monday. If they don't, they will know somebody who does. Might try Nocona boots. I think they make Tony Lama's.

A good quality cobbler shop should be able to help you. My first set of boots were Tony Lama's and I had to get them resoled several times. It is harder these days to find an expert in house cobbler shop due to our throw away society.

If they want to put half soles on, don't waste your time. And since the boot needs to be taken apart, it is a perfect time to have them custom fit. If you don't, they are going to have a really hard time getting them back exactly like they are now.
