Vince's Village Cobbler the answer to all OF your LEATHER & accessory needs
Got a question about shoe repair? We may have the answer below.
Why should I bring my shoes to Vince's Village Cobbler? It's simple: Village Cobbler is a shoe shop with tailoring and design in mind. We don't associate ourselves with the term "shoe repair" because we are so much more. Our owner has been in the tailoring and garment repair business for more than 30 years. Why would you take your shoes to anyone else?
Makes sense. But how do I know your staff and equipment are superior? There is a big difference between us and our competition, and it lies in the skill of our craftsmen and our knowledge of state of the art technology. We stay ahead of the game by constantly educating ourselves and updating our machiery and methods.
Can you change the soles of my shoes? Yes, we can do rubber and leather soles, full and half. We can also replace the soles of Rockport shoes.
I have a pair of high-end boots that are too long on my leg. Can they be shortened? Yes we can, and we can even preserve original details in most cases. We can also taper or stretch the calf on a boot that is too tight or loose.
I don't like to go into a place and be treated like just another customer. I need someone that will sit down with me and explain exactly what will happen to my $250 shoes. This is a legitimate concern, and that's why we take the time to do this with everyone. After all, with our high turnaround, we can spare a minute. Why wouldn't we take a little extra time with our customers?
I broke the sole of my high-heel shoe! Can this be fixed? Yes it can. That part of the shoe is known as a support, or a shank, and we repair those too.
How about the zipper on my handbag? We repair or replace zippers on shoes, bags and leather items.
My shoes got stained with De-icing salt this winter. Can they be salvaged? We have a process which will remove the salt and restore the leather or suede to originality.
Can you clean my suede shoes? Yes, we can, no matter what color.
I have skinny legs and I find it difficult to find boots that fit me perfect. They are usually too wide in the calf. Would I be able to have my boots tapered if I decide to buy a pair? Yes we would be able to taper them from the calf to fit your leg perfectly.
