The leather tradesmen at Austin Shoe Hospital have been extending the life of leather products and footwear for more than 100 years. Worn shoes or boots rediscover their high-stepping past with a new heel, as experts use their advanced knowledge to deftly navigate common leather or exotic western skins, such as lizard, snakeskin, and rodeo clown. Cobblers also revive high-end women’s heels from designers including Jimmy Choo and Louboutin, smoothing out scuffs and applying rubber heel caps for improved traction and comfort. Troubled purses trade faulty zippers, split seams, or flimsy handles for sturdier replacements ($12.95–$25), and travel-hardened luggage check themselves in for a repair to the wheels and pull handles ($35–$85) to avoid taunts from haughty sarcophagi sharing space in the cargo hold.
