You know those really fabulous boots you’ve been dying to own, but really can’t afford? Forget them. Now’s your chance to breathe new life into your worn boots and shoes for a fraction of the cost of a new pair. Most cobblers can put a new heel or sole on any kind of footwear. And some can stretch a pair of shoes or even turn a pointy toe into a rounded toe. It really doesn’t make sense in this economy to spend a ton of money on a frivolous purchase when you can just update what you already have. I have a classic pair of lace-up boots from the 90′s that I can still wear because my cobbler changed the sole and polished them recently.
