    Compliments of the season, everyone! I have a pair of Shipton & Heneage Fitzroys, manufactured by Crockett & Jones. They will shortly need to be reheeled. Does anyone know if C&J will take them in for repair?

    I am writing this post as a public service annoucement for those gentleman on the forum who are seeking out local repair services for their favorite pair of shoes. Last month, my Allen Edmonds loafers needed to have their soles replaced. This was a simple task I thought any capable shoe repair...

    Apparently the Hanger Project now offers a shoe recrafting service, using Rendenbach soles and heels. According to their site, "Your shoes will be extensively and throughly recrafted by our award-winning cobbler to the SSIA Silver Cup contest standards". Does anyone have any more information on...

    I recently made an impulse buy on eBay and received my reward today! It's a pair of Alden 911 Medallion cap-toes. The pictures showed some scuffs and a reddish-brown stain by the toe, but when I took them out of the box, I noticed some places on the side of the soles where it appears the layers...

    I'm wondering if I can do anything to help nourish these poor neglected shoes. They are my oldest pair of shoes, as I've had them over half my life (around 17 years). While they have only been worn rarely, I have NEVER cared for them in any way until recently (not even a single coat of polish...

    I was interested in purchasing a used pair of AE Park Avenue oxfords on ebay, but the previous owner seems to have repaired out the soles and replaced the leather sole (which must have worn out) with a goodyear rubber sole (something a la ). Could I replace those with a leather sole; if so, how...

    Hello - after lurking for quite some time and reading various members' good advice, I am posting for the first time. I bought my first good dress shoes in July 2011 - black AE Park Avenues. I am a bit alarmed recently to find that the soles are getting a bit soft and spongy in certain spots...

    Hello everybody. I'm new to posting on the forum, although I've been reading as much of it as possible for several months. Can anyone recommend a good cobbler in the Cincinnati area? I picked up a great pair of Florsheim Imperial longwings that need a little more TLC than I feel qualified to...

    Found a local tag sale last weekend in Baltimore Maryland. Seems the proprietor (or someone they knew!) was once in the business of shoe repair, or picked up an odd lot off the back of a truck. Was intrigued by the wholesale lots of vintage (or at least seldom seen) shoe materials -...

    I am looking for advice and information regarding a pair of Alden 403 boots with a "commando" sole. For those not familiar with this style sole, its a combination leather and lug sole that is recessed on the edges, giving it a clear look from the side. Notably, its not an all rubber...

    Hello all, I'm new to the forum, and hoping for some advice about dealing with a deep scuff (about as thin as the side of a dime but down to the "raw" leather and just long enough to be visible to an observant eye) on the cap-toe of a pair of Merlot AE Park Ave. I read that shoe creme has...
