All Altberg boots can be resoled at the factory, using the original lasts.
It is very important that resoling is carried out on the original lasts the last helps the boot keep its shape, and correct fitting during the resole process.
It also enables the new sole to be pressed correctly, so the bonding of the sole to the upper takes place evenly over the whole of the sole and the sole edge.
Allow boots to dry very slowly if in hot conditions put a damp cloth over the boots to slow down the rate of drying
Spray all over with Leder-Bök
Spray twice into stitched seams and areas where boot flexes
Use of Leder-Bök may darken the Nubuk, but breathability of the boot will be sustained
If your priority is to keep the boots water-resistant then you can use Leder-Gris all over the boot
The use of Leder-Gris will change the appearance of the Nubuk significantly to a darker more shiny full grain leather appearance
Once you have used Leder-Gris then you must continue to do so you cannot restore the Nubuk to the original appearance
