Can You Get Timberland Boots Resoled?
Timberland boots are legendary. They have held onto their magic since 1973.
Starting from great styling to comfort, they hit it all. Their consistency, hard work, and constant innovations keep on making better boots every day.
But every good thing has an end. And one of them is your worn-down sole. That is soggy, thin, pressed, filled with holes, and overall simply retired. Retired from giving the comfort it used to and less shock-absorbing power.
The problem doesn’t end there. It keeps on affecting your legs and feet. Giving them pain every now and then.
This situation is worse than having worn down upper skin or boot laces.
And what seems worse is when you find out, the official Timberland store does not provide resoling services. Not just Timberland, most stores or cobblers would decline resoling Timberland Boots.
But why? And if so, then does it mean it’s impossible to resole Timberland boots?
Relax. Let me assure you, it’s 100% possible to resole your boots. There is some great shoe repairing experts who resole Timb boots. So it’s not impossible. But I must say, it’s definitely challenging to resole them.
The reason is due to the soles being glued together instead of stitched.
You see, any stitched item can be unstitched easily. All you have to do is pull the thread out and boom, the soles come off. Ready to get resoled.

However, glued soles are a completely different case. The company uses hardcore glue to stick the soles better. And especially after some users upfronted issues regarding the weak gluing system, Timberland started coming up with even tougher and tighter glue to stick to them.
Well, on one hand, it’s definitely a piece of good news. Now your soles won’t come off and you can enjoy the magic better. On the other hand, it might seem like bad news (not anymore, though), since it gets harder to resole such soles sticking like lovers.
So what they have to do is cut the worn-down sole and replace it with a new sole. However, if the sole is worn down to less than 2mm, then there remains nothing to “cut” for replacing or resoling.
Such a delicate process requires attention and a lot of hard work. It’s like doing surgery, any wrong mistake, and the patient dies.
And this is what most stores are scared of.
They wouldn’t want to take responsibility for boots that may get ruined anytime. Not on its own, but maybe because of them.

How much does it cost to resole Timberland boots?
As stated above, resoling is a delicate process.
Starting from cutting, checking its length, replacing, and buying the sole, every step is time-consuming and requires a lot of attention.
Such an attentive and tricky job has a cost. Which is mostly around 70 to 90$ in general.
However, this is only the service fee. You need to pay for the soles too.
The soles may cost around 12 to 30$. So, if I do some calculations, the overall cost may be around 82 to 120$. Which is almost close to buying a new pair of Timberland boots.
So, if you are okay with your budget you can go for it. Else buying a new pair would be a smart option. After all, since you are paying, why not just enjoy the newer version.

It may not be possible from the official Timberland store. But I did recommend a few great online repairing shops for you. That not only resole your boots but offers a wide range of services.
