Shoes are a key part of daily wear, and some people, depending on their workplace or lifestyle and leisure habits, will rely on one or two pairs of key shoes that they wear on a daily basis, particularly in a work context. As a consequence, shoes can be subjected to substantial wear and tear, and costs can easily and quickly mount up into the hundreds of dollars if worn shoes need to be replaced on a regular basis.
There are a number of businesses that specialise in repair and restoration of shoes and boot repair, and an individual can save a great deal of money by engaging the services of a shoe repairer. Good quality adult shoes can last for many years if they are well maintained and shoe repairers, who often offer a service as shoemaker as well, can provide you with good tips and advice on shoe care.
Shoemakers and repairers often supply shoe accessories and maintenance equipment such as shoe glue for minor repairs, shoes laces, shoe cleaners and polishing cloths, and many will provide a thorough shoe clean, buff and polish as part of their shoe repair service.
