Cost Benefits
During these hard economic times, an increasing number of individuals are searching for new ways to save money. Repairing your shoes instead of throwing them away and buying a new pair is a great way to save your hard earned cash.
High quality men's shoes can be resoled seven to ten times. Men`s heels can be fixed ten to fifteen times, while quality women`s shoes can typically undergo eight to fifteen heel fixes. Uppers made from a high quality material last longer and can also be repaired numerous times at a fraction of the cost of new shoes. With new soles and heels, and reconditioned uppers, the shoes will look like new, yet retain that broken-in, comfortable feel, it is possible to get more than 20 years of life out of high quality shoes that you choose to repair. This makes it significantly less expensive for you to repair your footwear rather than throwing out your old shoes and purchasing new ones.

Quality Shoes
Footwear isn't just part of your wardrobe, it is an investment. Spend your money wisely and the return will be more value for your dollar, more comfort, better foot health and even a sense that you are helping the environment.
As with all investing, it is wise to have a counselor to make sure your money is well spent and continues to pay dividends. In the footwear arena, that counselor is your local shoe care professional.
Shoe repair and shoe care make sense for several reasons. First, shoe repair adds value to your footwear investment.
Quality, well-maintained men's shoes can be resoled seven to ten times at a fraction of the cost of new shoes. With new soles and heels, and reconditioned uppers, the shoes will look like new, yet retain that broken-in, comfortable feel. It is not uncommon for a man to get 30 years out of a good pair of shoes. Quality women's shoes can be resoled three to five times.
Shoe repair can also alleviate a variety of physical problems. Worn heels will change your gait. When you are not walking properly, your feet, ankles, knees, hips and back can all suffer.
Improper fit causes calluses, corns and bunions. Shoe repair shops offer stretching services and fitting aids to alleviate those problems. Typically, they can stretch a shoe from a D to an E in width. They can also add more space for toes or raise an instep. They can even stretch the calves on boots. If your shoes are too loose, you can pick up heel grips, tongue pads and insoles to create a better fit.
Finally, shoe repair is among the oldest forms of recycling. Each year, the shoe repair industry keeps some 62 million pairs of shoes out of landfills and on consumers' feet. So next time you invest in footwear, get some advice from a shoe repair professional.

Health and Comfort Benefits
If cost benefits are not enough reason for you to repair your shoes, the United States government reports that repairing your shoes is actually good for your health. According to a Congressional report, you create a natural, custom fit when you continually wear a pair of shoes.

This natural, custom fit helps to distribute your body weight evenly, which can help to improve your posture, make you feel more comfortable and contributes to your overall health. Repairing your shoes allows you to keep this custom, comfortable fit while making your shoes look nice and rejuvenated.

Walking on worn shoes, however, can put stress on your spine, which in turn, puts extra stress on your feet, ankles, knees and hips. If you throw your spine out of alignment by wearing poor-fitting shoes, you will likely end up visiting a foot doctor, physical therapist, and or chiropractor. The cost of visiting any of these professionals with physical therapy, medication and possible long term corrective medical devices will undoubtedly cost you far more than getting your shoes repaired.

Environmental Benefits
One of the easiest ways you can be an environmentally friendly individual is to repair and maintain your possessions rather than throwing them out to add to the landfill. This includes shoes, of course.
Whenever you purchase a new pair of shoes, you toss the old ones. Plus, purchasing a new pair comes with its own trash, including the box, tissue, other packaging material and the bag from the store. This alone makes repairing your shoes a far more eco-friendly choice than buying a new pair.

Thanks again for the great service and products, when I bring my boots in for repairs it still blows me away how new you make them look. I'll be back soon! — Tobin Johnson
