Restoring Skates

just wondering if anyone has any tips on fixing the boots on skates, the outside of mine are starting to come apart from normal wear and tear. its not hurting my performance at all, its just a cosmetic thing.

depends on where it's coming apart. Some parts can be fixed. Some can't.

I had problems on my Bauer Vapor 8 skates coming apart at the achilles guard and also needing a new liner inside. I sent them to Georges Shoe Repair in Minnesota. they had them good as new in less than a week.

Georges shoe repair in St. Paul. The North Stars used to use them and from what I hear, the Wild and Minnesota Gophers use them to this day.

I've had some gloves re-palmed by them. Great guys too.
