While many people get a thrill in buying new shoes and boots, there are numerous benefits to repairing versus replacing them. Just a few are:
Keep your comfortable favorites. Your shoes can be resoled 2-3 times on average as long as the upper leather portion of your shoes is in good condition.
Save money versus buying a new pair. Depending on factors such as the condition of your shoes and what you want replaced, simple resoling of shoes can usually save you more than 70% of the price of a new pair. Saving money on shoes can free your funds for larger goals.
You may not be able to replace your favorites. Especially you have worn-to-a-perfect-fit shoes, you may not be able to find them to replace them. Fashion changes quickly and we have all been disappointed when something we love has been discontinued.
Repairing your shoes, boots and sandals is environmentally friendly. Give your shoes and boots new life rather than adding to landfills.
Most people are amazed at how great an old pair of shoes or boots and bags and belts will look after just a simple restoration! Giving your shoes and accessories new life is very similar to reviving old friendships.
