ICON Ti-Max Gloves

As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to have them.

Bought them, a while back (years), when they first came out, and was not really able to wear them for a few months (darn winter).

When I finally was able to wear them, the velco stitching came out quickly in a couple spots -

I talked to the dealer, then the mfg rep, no warranty, sorry. Tried more than once, no real pleased with the quality.

Wore them again for the first time in a long time, and asked my mother-in-law to sew the velcro back on - it would be a tricky job, as some of the pieces were small.

She declined - but offered up a suggestion:

Take them to a shoe repairman.

We have a huge family owned boot retailer here in town, with a full service repairman, not sure why I did not think of that sooner.

Took the gloves in Monday, the guy looked at them, did not see any problem, said they would be ready Thursday (I told him I was in no hurry).

I'll pick them up tomorrow and share the workmanship and the costing.

If any of you need leather repairs, this might be an option for you as well.

Support you local shoe repairman! (repairperson!)

A good shoe repair person is a great resource.
I've taken MANY things to the local shoe repair lady to be sewn, leathers, patches, etc. but never a pair of shoes!!

I agree. There's one here locally and the guy isn't afraid to take on anything. Even shoes!

I went to pick up the gloves, they were ready.

All new velvro, looked better than new.

Then I asked the amount -

$8.00

EIGHT DOLLARS

What a deal

Channeling your inner Sauron?




heh actually I too have a pair of original ti-max gauntlets with unraveling stitching. Never thought to take them to a shoe repair shop. I'm going to do that too. Thanks for the good idea.

That's funny. A co-worker sent me this pic just last week when I was babbling on about new MC gloves.
