Austin Shoe Hospital has revived footwear, luggage, and leather goods for more than a century. A team of shoe-smiths adds protective caps to ladies’ heels of any style or brand, including Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin. The staff's deft hands restore the original tannery finish on men’s shoes and boots, dissecting kicks layer by layer to ensure heels and soles are securely re-bonded before adding rubber plates to improve traction and ward off future damage. The cobbling champions extend their leatherworking prowess to other feats of repair, refurbishing handbag seams and baseball gloves, shortening belts, and revivifying luggage whose zippers have burst from trying to smuggle a fairly large cappuccino maker home as a souvenir.
