    I've trooped 4 times in my CA boots and the soles are wearing out really quickly! Anyone else having this issue? I'm going to go to a shoe repair place to see if they can re-sole the bottom layer at least with something that won't wear nearly as quickly.

    So I brought them to the shoe repair shop near me and they are going to replace the thin layer of the sole on the bottom (1/8 if that part that makes ground contact) with this crazy fiberglass leather combo sole that is almost double the height. It will be barely noticeable but should last. I hope, b/w that and just a basic all around maintenance to ensure longevity in these I just dropped 50 bucks. I figured it'd be worth it though...hopefully!
