Makin’ em Last – The Eternal Sidi Sole

I ran across THIS fabulous post about making your Sidis last longer than their lifetime – by replacing their worn down soles.

On some Sidi shoes, replacing the MTB lugs is easy, because they are made to be replaced! (Thank you Sidi!) On the Dragons, the lugs are screw-on modules.

However, on earlier Sidi shoes, including my winter Sidi boots and Dominators, the lugs are molded in, or glued on. What do we do? THIS article showed us!

In his case, he had to cut off the lugs of his Dominators, then epoxied and screwed Dragon replacement lugs/soles in place.

In my case, the winter boots, mine are glued on lugs to basically a road sole. I will be cutting and prying and pulling the old worn lugged sole off.

So you see, Sidi shoes do have an eternal sole!

For the hardcore or true frugaliste, one can cut and use car-tire tread pieces in place of fancy Italian and expensive ($50) replacement soles.
