New Shoes, New Soles

As the temperature cools and the days grow shorter, we’re shuffling through the best of our autumn wardrobes. In our case, that means leather and suede boots – big and small, platform sneakers – of course – and trading our smart desk sandals for new-season pumps. For others, this means shopping for new towering pumps. Whatever your shoe preference, our cobblers recommend prepping your pre-fall/winter closet essentials with protective rubber soles.

 Designer Shoes with new soles

This week at the Concierge, we received a glam shipment of never-worn designer pumps, including YSL, Aquazzura, Stuart Weitzman and L.K. Bennett. Featuring buttery smooth leather soles, this über-chic collection of heeled sandals offers a glimpse into the head of one well-prepared shoe-lover. The request? Fresh rubber soles for all. Protective rubber soles, or our half-rubber option, are thin yet durable, and come in a variety of colors. We have several shades of beige, in addition of Louboutin red, brown and black. Most opt for one of the natural-leather colors to match the original soles, but the choice is yours.


With protective rubber soles, the original branding will remain intact on the shoe shank. This means that pair of suede taupe Aquazzura sandals will still boast the Italian label’s signature gold pineapple on the outsole. As brand touchstones – like Aquazzura’s pineapple or Charlotte Olympia’s web – continue to propagate the market, our cobblers are moving into more custom options, allowing you to personalize your designer wares. Upgrade your pumps with your initials, a special date or even a nickname. Interested? Text SHOES (74367) today.
