boot sole replacement on the AsoloTPS535

I used to be able to send leather backpacking boots for a sole replacement. But that stopped with the kind of soles changing. Now I looked at the Asolo TPS535 on the website and it said the soles are replaceable. I live near the Berkeley CA REI and I wonder where to get the soles replaced. So please tell me where or if I still have to mail them to a replacement site.

Hi Brian - Thanks for reaching out!

We don't currently offer a boot repair service at REI, but there are other options available. If you are up for mailing your boots in, we suggest Dave Page, Cobbler — a shop located in Seattle. They specialize in mountain boot repair and are our authorized repair agent for this service. 

In the Berkeley area, it looks like Model Shoe Renew might be able to help you with your Asolos, though we suggest contacting them directly to ask about their familiarity with your style of boot.

Hopefully this helps!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
