I’ve gotten a good share of fashion crisis-related questions over the years. ‘‘Where are the best places to get my clothes altered?” “Where can I get my designer handbags maintained and repaired?”
But the most commonly asked question, and this always leaves me perplexed, is “Where do I go to get my shoes fixed?” The sorry pair of designer heels hidden at the back of my closet can bear witness to the fact that I had no clue either.
Favourite shoes, especially ones that are branded, are too dear to our hearts to throw away at the first sign of trouble. I’m sure many of us could relate to the pinching agony of having to toss a pair of damaged shoes that we love; be it old pairs that have suffered severe wear and tear, shoes with broken heels or ones where the soles have come off.
In order to answer the pressing question posed to me by many, I managed to find a list of shoe mending places that are highly recommended by past customers on the internet. Whether you’re looking for convenience, value-for-dollar fixes or cobblers that specialise in fixing designer shoes, here are the best places for getting your seemingly exhausted pair of kicks fixed.
