Hi Belle,You often urge women to get their shoes re-heeled to avoid the embarrassing ‘clack, clack’ of exposed metal. I’ve been in DC for a while and have yet to find a good place to get this done. Hoping to get some boots (the Ciao Bella Tori Boot you wrote about on the blog–love them!) resoled before winter hits and would love your recommendation.Thanks! Abby
It’s true, I do hate the high-pitched squeal of exposed metal on cobbletstone/marble/wood flooring. It makes me want to call a “Time Out” like Zack Morris and go searching for the offender. So while I’m sure I’ve answered this question before, I’ll answer it again.
In D.C., I’ve been reasonably happy with Cobbler’s Bench. They have locations all over D.C. including inside the House Office Buildings, all are open to the public. There’s also Art’s Shoe Repair on 17th Street NW. They do a pretty good job.
Also, if you ever want to know where I go for something or who I see, just check The Sartorialist.
