Can a shoe repair shop fix these issues?
I’ve never been to one before, and I really don’t want to buy new shoes. I have three pairs of shoes that need some work: a synthetic pair of combat boots, some leather Nine West booties (i don’t know if it is synthetic), and some suede Guess boots with a faux wood bottom.
The combat boots have a completely broken zipper; the zipper came off track and part of the zipper track is now crooked and detached from the shoe. The shoes were only $40 but they are worth a lot to me because I have somewhat big feet and all of the combat boots I have run across are either ugly on me or don’t come in my size. I have yet to find another pair that fit nicely for the same price. Not only that, but these are super broken in and comfortable with the zipper being the only problem.
The nine west shoes have a messed up heel tip and since the leather is covering all parts of the shoe, it’s started to get scuffed and peel off of the heel and bottom of the shoe (areas where there is the most contact).
The suede shoes have a couple of light stains on them. Not super deep or noticeable ones, but stained nonetheless. Also, part of the faux wood has been scuffed off in a small area on the bottom and you can see the base of shoe bottom.
Can these issues be fixed? What should I give up on? Normally I replace shoes, but these are all some of my favorites in my closet and I haven’t really found shoes in the stores that are reasonably priced (under $150) that look better than what I have :( not only that but I haven’t had these that long and I am just rough on shoes I think….
