    I'm going to be buying a pair of black renaissance boots but want to have the heel sole removed and replaced with a more 'combat boot' sole. Does anyone have an idea for a price range I should expect to see?

    I would think the best thing to do would be to contact the Ren boot maker and ask him what he woudl charge you to charge you to attach a waffle sole to the ren boot.

    I'm not buying a pair of custom made boots from one specific person, but a pair from an online website that sells them for some boot company. They are all over the net and are commonly used by Batman fans.

    One of the problems with answering is we don't know which boot exactly. The two main ways to attach a sole is to glue it on or to sew it on. The sew ons are much easier to remove than the glue on. Basically if you can resole it, it doesn't matter the sole type (assuming flat boots with two inch heels it might be hard to go with a flat sole).
