  1. Hi All,

    the zip on my alpinstar smx boots has just broken - does anybody happen to know anywhere that might fix something like this?

  3. Where are you? There is a place in Melb that does it.
  4. No!...It's true.
  5. Yep one post is enough.

    Medal boots Gertrude Street Fitzroy
    Its around the back of a laneway and hard to find so you may have to look around but they are the duck's guts.
    Nuff said.
  6. Seconded.

    But I get the impression that repairs take some time given it's a one man show. The kind of place where it pays to drop in every now and again to see how work is progressing. The quality is worth it though - I love my Medal boots!

  10. Hi - I ended up buying a new pair of boots but still with the intention of getting my smx-3 goretex boots fixed as a spare for when the weather turns bad.

    The cobblers that I phoned said they could probably do it but I would need to source a zip.

    When I bought my new boots they guy in the shop called the A* rep to see if I could get a spare zip - he couldn't supply this but recommended a cobbler called Manfreds on Errol St in North Melbourne - he stocks the zip already and can do it for $65
