PRO-BOOT MX Boot Resole & Repair

Do you have a pair of motocross boots that are still in great shape, but the soles are worn out? Pro-Boot can put new soles on them! For $99 plus the return shipping cost, Pro-Boot will install new Gaerne SG10 soles and toe caps, just like you see in the photos above. Trials and Enduro soles are an additional $10. Guaranteed work and quick turnaround. In addition to sole replacement, Pro-Boot can also do stitching, plastic welding, and most other repairs needed.

PLEASE NOTE: WE ONLY RESOLE BOOTS THAT HAVE WELTED SOLES. A motocross boot with a welted sole will have stitching around the top perimeter of the sole and will typically have metal toe caps. Gaerne, Alpinestars Tech 8, and Sidi Crossfire TA are examples of boots with welted soles.

WE DO NOT RESOLE BOOTS WITH MOLDED SOLES. If you are not sure if your boots have a welted or molded sole, please call or text 507-534-1247.

Once your boots arrive at Pro-Boot, they will typically be on the way back to you within 3 business days. It's not a bad idea to call before sending your boots especially if you are in a time crunch, as occasionally a vintage race 1500 miles away or a family vacation may delay things for a few days.

If you have any questions, please call or text 507-534-1247 or you can email me at provue56@gmail.com. Also, there is a Pro-Boot MX Resole and Repair page on Facebook where you can see more photos. Pro-Boot Guy is also Pro-Vue Guy, so if you have worn out soles AND wear glasses, you can get prescription goggles at pro-vue.com - Thanks for visiting this site, I hope to work on your boots!

Here's the process to get your boots done:
1. WASH YOUR BOOTS! If your boots are too dirty to work on, we will have to charge you $20 to have them washed and it will add at least a day to the time we have them here. If your boots have inner booties, like Tech 8's, remove these.
2. Print out PDF form below, fill it out, and put it inside one of the boots. DON'T FORGET THIS PART!

MXA TEAM TESTED: PRO BOOT RESOLE AND REPAIR
Just about the time your boots break-in the soles wear out—Pro Boot has the answer



WHAT IS IT? A fountain of youth for motocross boots in the form of Pro Boot’s resoling and repair service.

WHAT’S IT COST? $99.00, plus shipping.

CONTACT? provue56@gmail.com or 507-534-1247.

WHAT STANDS OUT? Here’s a list of things that stand out with Pro Boot’s resole and repair.

(1) Application. Pro Boot can only resole stitched (welted) sole boots. Bonded soles and molded sole-boot wearers are out of luck with Pro Boot. We sent Pro Boot beat-up SixSixone Flight and Fox F3 boots. Call Pro Boot beforehand to be certain your boots can be resoled.

(2) Boot chassis. To get the best value from a resole, the boot chassis must hold up for the lifespan of the soles. Take note of the condition of the parts on your boots. The buckles, insoles and toe caps can usually be replaced. Plus, Pro Boot can do a lot of minor leather repair. Overall degradation of the body of the boot, however, can’t be fixed. Pay attention to how much support the boot offers, because if the upper is worn out, there is no fix for that. Before shipping your boots, take note of the condition of all the boot’s materials. It’s not worth the money to resole and repair a low-quality boot.

(3) Cobbler. You might be asking, “Why should I waste time and money shipping my boots across the country when I can just drop them off at the local cobbler?” In MXA’s pursuit to inform our readers about the best deals possible, we did just that. Resoling a motocross boot is trickier than resoling your average loafers, and it takes a skilled cobbler to do a proper job. Local cobblers can be a gamble. We did take a set of Gaerne SG10s to a local shoe-repair shop to check the service. We spent $100, plus $30 for Gaerne soles, and got two rides out of our resoled SG10s before they started delaminating. Pro Boot guarantees their work. If a sole were to delaminate, they would resole it for free.



(4) Gaerne. The ideal sole must be durable, but still grip the footpeg well. Pro Boot made a good decision to use Gaerne soles on all the boots they repair (regardless of the brand of the boot). A set of replacement soles from Gaerne costs $30. Pro Boot specializes in Gaernes. They carry a lot of Gaerne replacement parts and can do a full-service job on your SG10s or SG12s.

(5) Repairs. Pro Boot can do boot repairs beyond just the sole, including stitching and gluing. If a boot is chewed through to the mid-sole, don’t give up; Pro Boot can fill it in and resole the boot. If plastic is pulled away from the leather boot at the ankle where it flexes, it can be glued back in place. If buckle straps are torn, they can be restitched. Pro Boot does minor mid-sole fill-ins and gluing for free as a courtesy. More time-consuming repairs require an additional charge once Pro Boot takes a look. Typical repairs might cost $25.

WHAT’S THE SQUAWK? Our only complaint wasn’t with Pro Boot but with shipping, which took four or five business days each way. Even though Pro Boot executed a next-day turnaround with our boots, we didn’t get them in time to race on the weekend. Plan the resole at a time when you won’t ride for two weekends. You could second-day air ship your boots, but the total cost on a repair should not exceed the cost of new boots.

Our Pro Boot-repaired boots held up well. Pro Boot’s resole is a smart option for a frugal racer, or a racer who loves the broken-in feel of his old boots and doesn’t want to start over again with new boots.
