When you damage your shoes or your shoes get unknowingly damaged, the first person or human remedy that you can think of is the cobbler. There is a thinking that prevails in the human mind that is that the cobbler can repair the worst damaged shoes, yes obviously it is their work.


But no one is made perfect and so does goes with the cobbler. You can custom make your own shoes but can you make better shoes that a shoemaker, no. so, the shoemaker also has pros as well as cons and some tasks cannot be performed by a cobbler.


Here is a list of things or repairs which can and cannot be performed by a local shop of shoe repair-

  • Replacement of soles- The soles of the leather shoes can be replaced. When the soles of leather custom sliders begin to wear and tear,

    the shoemaker or cobbler may suggest you replace the sole of the shoe with a more durable sole as this will increase the life of the shoes.


  • Change heel tips-yes, the heel tips can be changed by you as well as by your cobbler. the heels come with detachable plastic heel tips and

    the life of the heel tips can be extended. It is suggested that when you purchase a new pair of heels, then do buy a good quality heel tip as it will be durable.


  • Re sole the sneakers- The sole of the sneakers cannot be replaced. If you think that I want to customize my own shoes and want to change the sole

    of the sneakers, then you cannot do so. The soles are attached to the overall body of the sneakers and they cannot be changed. While if you want to

    make other repairs in your sneakers, then it is possible.


  • Stretching the too-tight leather shoes-Your too tight leather shoes can be stretched to a certain extent. So, if you have got a pair of leather shoes which you

    had by design your own shoes free online, but they are tight, then you can get them to fix by a cobbler as it will be less risky to do so. The length, as well as

    the width of the shoes, can be extended a bit as per your foot size or if you have got any foot problems, then also the shoe can be altered.


  • Decrease the shoe size or make them small-There is no possible way to make your plastic slide shoes smaller or a bit tighter. Though, there are some

    alternatives like shoe insoles ort pads that can be used to make the shoe a little tighter.


  • Dying the light shade shoes and make them darker-It is possible that you can make you old boots of a lighter shade darker by applying dye on the boots.

    Some cobblers know about this dye concept and can transform your shoes.

So, you see that there are some things which are not possible for the cobbler as well while there are some things in which the cobbler masters.
