"I took my shoes in because I had worn down the padding so much I was walking on the frame of the shoe. Apparently I didn't explain it properly because the only" thing he did was replace the insole, not the padding, so he simply took a standard insole (which did not fit over the entire inside of the shoe, but left a good portion of the under sole in the arch area exposed) and glued it in there, even the gluing job wasn't that great. Also, he told me to come by the next day to pick them up which I thought was amazingly fast; turns out it was, when I went the next day they weren't ready so he sent me away again. I have heard really exceptional things about this shop, and I am the only one I know who has had problems. A lot of people (including state senators I believe) love this place. I won't be going back there, but you might try it, just be REALLY clear about what you want.

"I brought the boots in and the counter people were very friendly and helpful. They took about one week which is pretty reasonable considering they have so much business.

Angie's Answers

?

You would have to have a shoe repair shop evaluate them - some heels are hollow except at the tip so you might not be able to shorten them and retain the necessary strength - others are solid, so he would have to look at them. Might be able to just remove heel cap, cut down, and put heel cap back on.

 

Bear in mind that cutting the heels down will rock the shoe "backwards", so you will be walking on sole further back on the shoe - if the unthickened sole part betweenthe heel and the ball of the foot would be walked on because of this, you might have to pay him to add leather there to, which might mean resoling the entire shoe - could get pricey, if these are not worth hundreds of $.

 

As for evaluating a shoe repai place - only thing I can think is if these are pricey shoes, call store and see if they recommend a particular place. Otherwise Search Angies List for sheo repair places and reviews.
