My precious Gasolina boots have been worn into the ground. One section on both heels (I must drag my feet) has been worn all of the way to the stacked heel. I found a local cobbler (who knew? and every time I say “cobbler”, someone laughs) and dropped my boots off. They look awesome! I am so excited that rather than having to buy a new pair, I can get mine fixed time and again!
Also, while I was there, some light metallic gold shoe cream caught my eye. I have some gold ballet flats that have starting getting scuffed up, and it makes me not want to wear them as much because I am afraid I will keep scuffing them and then have to trash them. Anyways, the gold shoe cream is almost an exact match, so I had to treat the whole shoe, but they look brand new again! Amazing.
This discovery allows me to feel ok about spending more on a good pair of shoes because I am know how easily they can be repaired. (In addition to shining and protecting them, which I already do!)
Now if only I could figure out how to fix the gigantic water stain on a leather bag – I wonder if the Cobbler can just dye it a dark brown to cover it up?
