Since small shoes are so hard to find, the ones I have I try to take extra good care of. Of course, my favorites end up looking like they’ve been through war because I wear them so much, and that’s when it’s time to take them to the cobbler. Here are two of my little soldiers, back from the shopping and bar hopping trenches.
The wine colored Cole Haans are my “shopping shoes”, and have been around the block a time or two. Apparently I’m a little rough on the toes of my shoes, because I actually scraped into the patent leather at the tip. The brown patent Christian Louboutin was a victim of a sidewalk crack, in which the heel fell and scraped some of the leather right off. Poor little guy!
I took my shoes to a very well recommended shoe repair shop here in Los Angeles called Pasquale Shoe Repair and they fixed my babies up. Unfortunately patent leather is harder to repair than natural leather, so the repair isn’t perfect, but I was more concerned with covering over the white leather showing through than anything else.
The Cole Haans look great, but I’m a bit bummed I beat up the heel on my Christian Louboutin so badly. Oh well…that’ll teach me to pay better attention on heavily cracked sidewalks!
