DNA of a Shoe Repair

Whether you wear them every day rain or shine, or simply snagged your heel on the sidewalk, your favorite pair is probably in need of some extra TLC. Find out how Cobbler Concierge’s esteemed craftsmen will make sure you shoes are ready for their close up.

 

Home to Prada, Gucci, Ferragamo and more, Italy houses the leading leather tanneries on the planet. The concierge has enlisted the help of a more than 100-year-old business known for using traditional treatment methods to produce long-lasting, water resistant and flexible leather.

 

After leather is pit tanned, a centuries-old method that involves soaking the skin in the ground with chestnuts for four months, sole bends are ready to meet your shoes (leather insoles and outsoles are made entirely by hand to suit your unique items.)

 

Once the leather arrives in New York, our expert team matches the right skins to your accessories. And we’re making upkeep easier for you too: an array of specially designed products will protect, preserve and support your footwear long after the repair is complete.
