Cobbler Concierge Makes On-Demand Shoe Repair a Reality
Get your luxury shoes and bags spiffed up and delivered to your door.
Everyone knows New York City is tough, but have we mentioned the toll it takes on your shoes? Driving is impossible in the city, so everyone here travels by foot. You bet there's not a single pair I own that isn't damaged. That's why I was overjoyed to learn of Cobbler Concierge, a new service and app that takes the hassle out of getting your luxury shoes and bags fixed by coming to you.
If you're worried about handing over your precious designer duds, have no fear. Cobbler Concierge works with Rocco's, a top-rated fourth-generation cobbling family with more than 80 years of experience. I have a pair of Prada pumps I have never trusted anyone with (hence, the dire need for fixing). I didn't think twice about sending them once I learned about Cobbler Concierge's credibility.
To get your items spruced up, you first place an order online detailing what you need: heel repair, recoloring, salt removal, stretching and more. There's a flat rate for up to five items—$40 per pair of shoes and $100 per bag. You'll receive an empty box with instructions and a shipping label so you can mail in your goods for free. Once they complete your request, they'll send you back your shoes as good as new and carefully packaged.
Need to see it to believe it? Check out how they fixed my favorite shoes, below. Before, the soles were completely eroded, the heel tips were worn and there was scuffing all over. After, they looked just as good as when I first bought them.
