Resurrect your old wingtips and leather boots with new soles from Greenwich Vintage Co. This is not our usual product profile, but touches at the very core of why we started LumberJac. When you can, buy locally from makers who care about their craft and the lifespan of their products. If and when things break-down, get them fixed and help cure our nasty throwaway society. At Greenwich Vintage, they re-craft and restore customers old wingtip, boots and chukkas with their signature in-house made colored soles. Located in Waconia, Minnesota, this US based company prides itself on preserving and improving on the past for future generations. The process starts by selecting from Commando, Ripple or Bricklayer sole design, then selecting the sole and mid-sole color. Once your footwear is shipped, the total process takes about 2-4 weeks as each restoration is completed by hand then finished with a final clean, polish, and a new set of laces.
