LIFE IN THE OLD BOOTS YET

The Field - - Country Queries -

QI won­der if you could help me with an old-fash­ioned co­nun­drum? I have a very old pair of Royal Hunter Wel­lies with stud­ded soles. The studs have nearly worn away. I would like my el­dest son to con­tinue the su­perb use I have had from these boots but I can­not seem to find any­one who can re­pair them. It’s a shame to throw them away as they are good as new in all other re­spects. Can you help?

AThere are only a lim­ited num­ber of places where you can get such won­der­ful old wel­lies re­paired. Busy Bee in New­mar­ket, Suf­folk, re­pair a large va­ri­ety of footwear, in­clud­ing gum­boots. In the first in­stance, they sug­gest send­ing im­ages of the soles to them at [email protected]­bee­new­mar­ket.com. They have studs avail­able for such a re­pair. Al­ter­na­tively, go to their web­site and click on the ‘Pick Up My Re­pair’ link and fol­low the in­struc­tions. Most re­pairs take seven to 14 days.
