Repair of the Week: Snake-Effect Heels
These blue-green heels might look like they only require a quick clean, but find out how our skilled cobblers mended the pair to make them look #LikeNew again.
Designed by label Linea Paolo, these snake-effect heels required all-over attention. The split insole pictured above was newly created to match the original design, which was worn and dirty. The cobbler pulled out the leather strip and hand-stitched a fresh piece into place.
But the back-lining around the heel was deteriorating as well. Our bag masters were called in to fit a new soft suede piece to mold to the back of the foot.
The team painted the sides of the soles a deep stain to match the original outsole, which was refinished as well.
The upper was thoroughly cleaned before three different hues were applied to perfect the snake-like ombre design.
