    Where can I get motorcycle boot repairs

    My Sidi Vertigo Corsas need new soles. Still lots of tread, but the spot where I put weight on the foot pegs is severely indented and I doubt I'll make it through the season without it wearing all the way through.

    I can order the soles from any Sidi dealer, but they don't repair them so I'm looking for a cobbler who has experience with sportbike boots. I took them to my usual place where I take my dress shoes, but he didn't instill a lot of confidence so I didn't want him experimenting. I'd prefer to take them somewhere where they've done it before.

    Any suggestions?

    I just had my Sidi boots repaired after 2 hard years and thousands of kilometers. They were tired. I bought the soles from Bayside and had Quick Cobbler on 2nd Ave in Vancouver do the work. They charged me around $100 and the boots are like new. Great work and I've used them for other jobs as well. I even had them stitch the toe so they would be more durable.

    I ordered my replacement soles from here: http://www.ridegear.com
    Expect to wait about a month for them, as they probably won't be in stock.. even if it says they are..
    I then took the boots to the New West Cobbler.

    Two other "quality" shoe repair shops weren't interested in the job.. the New West Cobbler didn't bat an eye and did the job for $21.00. The boots are still holding up well two years later.

    Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Thanks - great tips. I don't normally venture out to New West, but for an $80 savings, I'll definitely check it out.

    If you do please report back. Next time I'll go there if they do a good job.

    I took my Frank Thomas riding boots to "Marco's Italian Shoe Doctor", #1073 international Village Mall, for new soles and heals. He did a great job, $67.00 plus tax. I recommend him, old school cobbler. Thought he was good value and did an excellent job. If you live in Van or close by, you might want to try him out. Two hour free parking underground with m.c. parking as well.
    Full Yoshi SS, Galfer wave rotors, Goodridge steel lines, Hel oil lines, Corbin GFL, Penske rear, RaceTech front, Hids, Givi hard bags with full lighting kit, Dyna Coils, K&N, Samco rad hoses, 9500ix/iQ, Pazzo, some bling, some CF.
