Shoe Repair

Yes, I’m one of those strange people who actually get shoes repaired. I have one pair that I’ve had for 7 years. I’ve had them re-soled 3 times and truth be told, I got them at a garage sale. Most people who have gone shop hopping with me during that time met the Zebra shoes. Well, they are officially dead.

I took them to be resoled one last time. It was a new shop, I had never been there before and I’m not sure I will ever go back again. He did a great job on the resole but he used a bronze polish on the Zebra shoes. Yes, he POLISHED my SUEDE shoes. Then he had the gall to argue with me about the fact that they were deteriorated suede when I brought them in. I have to admit though that they don’t look half bad as bronzed leather. I’m just not sure I can bring myself to wear them until I forget what they used to look like. Either that or until I need to wear a pair of spike heels that I can run in.

Oh, and yes, as a sample of how spineless I’ve become recently, I did pay for the re-sole even though he ruined the shoes. I guess I just wasn’t ready to let go of them.
