Leather Boots - C. Phaisalakani

How To Save Your Damaged Soles

Here’s a great place in Vancouver to resurrect your downtrodden footwear.

Leanter BootsDARE TO REPAIR | Wellies are the footwear of choice in Vancouver, but I also like luscious leather boots—fashion forward over a pair of skinny jeans or under a sexy skirt. I thought I was safe taking mine on a trip to NYC, but after a sudden downpour found myself wading through giant lakes that formed at the clogged storm drains at every intersection.

Undone and unglued, my beautiful leather boots were unwearable. A curmudgeonly cobbler on the West Side (who shall remain nameless) chided me for splashing around in puddles in my “cheap boots” and advised me to throw them in the bin. Undeterred, I hobbled over to Both Feet on Main Street. The hip young man there took them in hand, and, $15 and one week later, they were good as new.

Shoe repair is a no-brainer here at Frugalbits, but your local shoe repair shop (okay…not the curmudgeonly cobbler) can help you save a buck in other ways, too. Shoes at any price point are only good value if you wear them. An accommodating cobbler can stretch a shoe that pinches, update an outdated heel, dye a pump that’s lost its pep, or even waterproof a boot, if playing in puddles is your thing.—Terri Brandmueller
