Even painstakingly crafted footwear from renowned brands such as Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, and Manolo Blahnik experiences eventual wear and tear. That’s where the cobblers of Houston Shoe Hospital come in. The skilled craftspeople have meticulously revamped footwear of all kinds with the same attention to detail since the business’s inception in 1906. Using high-quality, handpicked rubber and leather products, they affix new heels, soles, and souls to myriad shoes, boots, and foot Spanx.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

The largest surviving video chain in the world, I Luv Video is West Campus’s sanctuary for movies, TV shows and video games. The bulk of this Austin storefront is divided up into five rows, each intricately decorated using the spines of old VHS boxes, while movies play on televisions scattered overhead. Chuckle-worthy commentaries written by the staff line the covers of the DVDs, while a back room, known as “Vintage Heaven,” houses VHS tapes, records, cassettes and 8-tracks that send customers back into the past. There’s a real nostalgia vibe inside I Luv Video, where young college types and aging locals alike mingle over hard-to-find titles and obscure videos. And on Tuesdays, after 6 P.M., visitors can enjoy a free beer while browsing through titles.
