Flirt with a Good Cobbler

4 Jul

Finding someone who offers fantastic service is a true blessing from heaven..especially when it involves one of my favourite things.. SHOES!

Not really a big fan of reviews (especially since I’m an SEO myself, I know a thing or two about reviews..heh), but I did checked out Vogue Forum to look at some recommendations on cobblers.

REKARIS SHOES & REPAIRS










I didn’t even know some of the services that they offered actually exist like new heels fashioned, colouring of shoes and handbags for weddings and special occasions.

Embroidered Boots made in Turkey. Got it from Soho, NY

After 2 years, I finally brought my embroidered boots that got stuck at the zipper to get it fixed.

The cobbler told me that the trick was to cut the extra leather flap inside and that’s the common cause for stucked zippers. The flap’s purpose is to act as a wind breaker but I think we can all agree that it’s unlikely to have a profound effect for shoes.

Great service and great people with high spirits. You can see they are enthusiastic about their works.I am so gonna bring all my shoes there to get them fixed and cared.

Oh, did I also mentioned that I got the boot fixed F.O.C :p
