After several years of abuse and poor care my boots have completely gone at the seams around the inner ankle (see photos)
What can I do to repair my boots? My current plan is to just get some thick thread and just resow them, but I am concerned about whether they will be at all waterproof afterwards. Is there anything else I should do/consider?
My boots are leather and made by Meindl if it makes any difference
P.S yes, I should definitely look after my boots better so they don't get in this state, but ts a bit late now...
