Multiple sources indicate that when shoes are resoled, they lose a bit of size because of the need to avoid previous holes when attaching the uppers. Is there an estimate of how much size is normally lost? I had a pair of shoes resoled, and they went from being a bit loose to being uncomfortably snug; if felt like losing an unreasonable amount of leather. If I'd known the size would shift so dramatically, i would've donated them instead of paying for resoling because I I no longer enjoy wearing them. Should I expect the resoling of all shoes to be similar, or is it possible that the resoler was just too aggressive?
