would rather get them re soled but not sure where or how to do this.
I've had plenty of shoes and boots resoled, and it's a great option if the uppers are in good shape. I looked on Google Maps and there are six shoe repair shops around Lubbock. Take the boots in and let the shoemaker look them over. If he can do it, resoling costs about half or a third what a new pair of boots will set you back, and you get boots good as new but are already broken in. Only downside is it can take a few weeks.
