Riding Boot Repair

I got some very inexpensive combat style boots for riding. They are absolutely perfect in fit, finish, and comfort, on the bike and off the bike. But not being motorcycle boots, the leather is starting to wear a little where I contact the shift lever. Has anybody every re-enforced that area on the left boot by either gluing something to the area or having a shoe repair place sew an extra piece of leather on the boot. They are SO comfy, I will do anything to increase their longevity.

Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!

I don't have suggestions for your boots. I would imagine that a shoemaker could easily solve your problem.

Note: Rubber shifter socks/boots can help prevent that problem.

I still have a full deck.
I just shuffle slower.

I had a pair that started to wear out like that.Took them to a leather "saddle shoe shop "and they were able to fix them.

Maybe something like this:

Chuck, I got mine done at "Bob's Shoe Repair" in Florence, but he's usually pretty busy.
