Video Description
In this video I add Vibram Mini-Lug half-soles and matching heel top lifts to a pair of Johnston & Murphy dress boots that I thrifted. They came with flat leather/rubber combination heels that are just not going to do the job in the nasty snowy winters here in the Midwest USA.

I used Vibram #2333 5mm thick half sole with Carramato lugs, and matching Vibram 6.4mm thick #5722 Lug Heel (top lift). I purchased them from eBay for $23.95 for the set from eBay seller ibm360rock. Note: although the ad stated that the half soles were #2332, the actual part had Vibram #2333 molded into them.

*UPDATE* Ibwas not happy with the finish and color of the heels. Since shooting the video I sanded down and Re-stained them with a lighter Tan Fiebings. You can see the result here:

Here are a couple related videos:
Here are the Polo shoes I referenced in the beginning:
"Which Polo Ralph Lauren shoes are Best?"

Although after watching this video it's probably redundant:
"How to Replace Top Lifts (Heels) at Home (detailed)"

"How to apply protective half soles to your shoes (1 of 3)":
My apologies, this one is in 3 parts as it was produced before I had enough views to post videos over 15 minutes. The production quality of my earlier videos is poorer, but I believe they all have good content.
