Breathe New Life Into Your Favorite Old Shoes With Resole America

It never fails… just when you’ve gotten your favorite pair of shoes perfectly broken in, they begin to wear out.

Well, that’s where Resole America comes in.

They breathe new life into your favorite old kicks.

Read on to see what makes these “conversions” or resoles so awesome and eco-friendly.


Founded in 1997, Resole America began with two things in mind: 1) resole shoes and boots remarkably well, and 2) Do it quickly and conveniently.

They’ve done a great job at accomplishing those two goals thus far.


How Resole America Works

It’s a simple 3-step process. Browse from Resole America’s list of shoes and styles and add the item to your cart, ship off your shoes in their pre-paid UPS box, receive your old shoes made new again in about a week.

How much easier can it get?

Resole America can even take your heavy, leather soled shoes and “convert” them into something lighter and more comfortable.

What does each conversion or resole entail? New unit outsole, factory refinish, new laces, minor stitching as needed.

Using Resole America to bring your worn out shoes back to life can not only save you money, but also reduce your environmental impact. Instead of throwing out your old shoes and buying new shoes, Resole America’s shoe “conversions” or resoles help you cut down on the waste involved in replacing worn out shoes while also eliminating the need to break in a new pair.



Yo. I'm Jeffrey. I think every little step is an awesome one when it comes to living green... but eco-snobbery sucks.

    I know I’m a dinosaur, but I take pride in my shoes. I love the idea of keeping favorites re-soled, but precious few people do that kind of work anymore. Now, if we can only get more people to polish…

  • Caroline

    A perfectly ecological way of loving my old shoes for longer.

  • Catharine R.

    My hubby was just asking what he could do to fix his favorite walking shoes that are starting to have separation. It would be great to have them resoled!

  • Becky Striepe

    I have a few pairs of perfectly good shoes that need to be resoled. This couldn’t have come at a better time! I wish they fixed busted zippers, too!

  • Paul Arthur Smith

    This is such an awesome idea! Funny, just recently I was looking at my shoes and noticing how worn they are, and that they may be a factor in my feet aching of late. To give them a new lease on life rather then sidelining them because of a worn base would be brilliant!

  • Ama Givens

    Having a pair of shoes is liking learning to ride a bike, you learn to love doing it or running/walking in them and they are like your favorite pair of shoes, but when they start to wear out, it makes you sad. This would make my shoes happy as well as my feet happy. would LOVE to win.


  • Debbie

    Shoes are so expensive. This is a great way to fix favorites and keep them in service a little while longer.

  • Diane B

    I would like to win the conversion or resolve shoes for many reasons including I need a nice grip shoe for pilates and other exercising. I also broke several bones last year and need a shoe, that I know will give me support especially in the gym.

    I would love to win because my husband has a pair of boots that are his favorite but they have just about had it!
