PS, did you know that for the amount of pers who want to re-sole their boots to vibrams....NDHQ has never...neverreceived a UCR from a single person recommending this change?

So in the reserves in the GTA, who would I see to get a chit to get the insoles, I have terrible knees from a sever break when I was younger and the mkIII's are killing me.  Do i have to see an army medic, if so where, or can I get a note from my GP and simply hand it to my Coy ??

Hi everyone!!

Does anybody know where I can get vibrum (spelling?) soles put on my combat boots? Preferably around the Toronto or GTA area.   Also the cost involved.... Thanks!   :cdn:


Yes, there are several locations in TO to get the Vibram soles put on. I just got my first pair done by power of the medical chit given to me by one of the MOs at the MIR at ASU Toronto (where you should be going to get it presuming that you are a member of a unit in 32 CBG). I got 'em after I had surgery done on my knee for an ACL repair and a medial meniscus tear and I tell ya, it is a thing of beauty to have those on the black caddies after recovery. Reg Force members get 'em paid for, dunno about Reservists. The place they directed me to go was a shop at Fairview Mall (Sheppard & Donmills) called Sole Proprietor (97 bucks a pair taxes in). Cheers!  :cdn:

WOW, I must have gotten a deal. Mine were just $70 after taxes.

If you have the good sense and good fortune to live in Montreal there is a place in NDG that will do an amazing job, and fix them up for the life of your boot, even when the sole starts peeling off.  Taxes in will cost you $55.

I paid $60 after tax per pair when I had mine done in Kingston (Had a med-chit, but was told I had to pay for them myself as I was on a short term B contract)

Our local shoe maker will do it for $40 + taxes, so shop around.
