Video Description
After a 2-1/2 YEAR GAP since releasing Part 1, I'm FINALLY airing part 2, which is filmed at a local Cobbler's shoe repair shop! We put new half soles onto my Florshiems, showing you how it's done every step of the way. Be forewarned though, I did a TERRIBLE job with the Blake/McKay outsole stitcher, COMPOUNDED with the fact that it was out of adjustment, so the outsole stitching came out terrible. I hope you still get some value from the video by either being entertained and/or learn something. Enjoy!
