In the past, I've been a big fan of getting my shoes repaired. I used to take them to the mall where they could be repaired while we walked around, grabbed a quick lunch, whatever. Unfortunately, the nice cobbler shop at the mall closed about two years ago. Even more unfortunately for me, my shoes fell in to serious disrepair.
I tend to have pretty expensive taste in shoes. I am happy if I can fall in love with a good quality shoe for under $80 or so. I know, I know. Honestly though, I do NOT have a vast shoe collection. I have two pairs of dress shoes (heels and flats) and two pairs of casual shoes (tennis shoes and a dressy-ish flat.) I HATE shopping for shoes because I am just so darn picky. I would live in $1 flip flops from Old Navy if I could.
Anyway, this weekend, I HAD to find somewhere to get my shoes fixed up. I've been wearing my heels for 2 years nearly every day. I haven't had my flats as long, but they got really dinged up in the snow over the last few weeks. (As a testament to my lack of shoe wardrobe, I need boots.) They came back looking so great and guess what my grand total was --$17! The heels were more expensive as they needed new heels, but still such a steal! Far cheaper than to new pairs of "cheap" shoes.
