Why Shoe Repair Can Save More Than Just Your Feet October 12, 2017

Why Shoe Repair Can Save More Than Just Your Feet, Brighton, New York

Many people simply throw worn-out sneakers away, but opting for shoe repair instead brings several benefits. New shoes require some breaking in before they become comfortable to wear. Rather than going through the process of shopping and waiting for them to mold to your feet, getting your old footwear fixed allows you to walk comfortably. But having your shoes repaired will benefit more than just your feet.

Your Wallet

Many people are getting creative in how they save money. Instead of purchasing new shoes when yours wear down, getting repairs will be more cost-effective in the long run. Those pricey Italian leather shoes you bought can be restored with just a new sole and won't cost as much as a new pair.

Your Shoes’ Life Span

shoe repairAside from fixing shoes, cobblers can also extend the life of your new footwear, saving you money in the long run. They can put rubber soles on your new, leather-soled flats to prevent water from seeping into the shoe or place inserts so you won't have to suffer the pain of a tight heel.

The Environment

Shoes are notoriously difficult to recycle as they're made of different fibers and plastics. For example, leather takes 25 to 50 years to biodegrade. Repairing them will keep them out of landfills that harm the environment. You can also opt to donate them to The Salvation Army® or Goodwill® so other people can enjoy them.
