Repairing Your 24/7 Shoes

Quick survey: how many new pairs of shoes do you buy each year? Each season? Results vary depending on shoe habits, of course, but, chances are there is at least one tried-and-true style in the back of your closet. You know the ones, the shoes you can turn to for that big interview, the first date, the last-minute appointment you simply can’t reschedule. The pair you can grab and go, knowing you’re taking the right step. Usually they come in black or brown or taupe, a hue that won’t fall flat after one runway season.

 

Let’s look at the ubiquitous nude heel. This style is so versatile these days, that Christian Louboutin is constantly expanding his #Nudesforall following with a growing range. Stuart Weitzman’s office-worthy options are another favorite for skin-tone hues. When this pale beige-pink pair arrived in the Concierge, our experts knew matching the correct color of the scuffed shoe was essential.

 

The glossy patent pumps were touched up heel-to-toe. Rubber soles were selected for durability and wearability in tough Manhattan streets. The final touch? A thorough clean of the insoles, and these nude beauties were good to go. What are your tried-and-true shoes? For more, connect with us on Instagram @CobblerConcierge
