Don’t Throw Out Those Old Shoes!

Repaired Shoes Can Be Better Than New

 Materials used in shoe repair often are three to four times better quality than ones used to manufacture shoes — even expensive shoes. Shoe-repair shops use the same high-quality materials on all shoes — better heels, soles and stitching. Shoes also can be completely reconditioned, which includes fixing torn or weakened areas, replacing worn-out parts and restoring color and finish. Simple repairs, such as new heels, usually cost around $20. Reconditioning can cost $100. This is well worth it for a pair of shoes that costs $300, for example, because you would be getting virtually a new pair of shoes for a fraction of the cost.
