Before the advent of cobbling, people with broken stilettos had to walk around on tiptoes, and boots could rarely be used for drinking. Keep beer-tight soles with today's Groupon for shoe-mending services at Dickson's Old Cobbler Shoe Repair with locations on Main Street and St. Andrews Road. Choose from the following options:
- For $7, you get heel-repair service for one pair of women's shoes or boots (up to a $15 value).
- For $10, you get heel-repair service for one pair of men's shoes or boots (up to a $20 value).
- For $25, you get $50 worth of shoe-mending services, shoes, and accessories.
The friendly craftsmen at Dickson's and Oakley's Old Cobbler Shoe Repair shops welcome in masses of broken heels and besmirched dress shoes as well as stocking brand-new kicks and accessories. Stilettos strut with renewed vigor and gumshoes can finally replace the half-chewed Bazooka holding up their shoes with a heel-reseating treatment. Customers can opt for more intensive repairs with a half-sole installation ($39 men's; $35 women's), raise vertically challenged stems with a .25-inch build-up ($35), or sharpen their espionage game with shoe-phone installation. Dickson's and Oakley's also stock shelves with brand-new treads such as elegant Sperry Top-Siders ($39.95 men's; $24.95 women's) and men's Rocky Hunting Boots ($69.95).

Cobblers can repair the full soles and heels on a pair of men or women's shoes, repair the corkbed and soles on Birkenstocks, or entirely recraft tattered cowboy boots. Technicians keep leathers looking luxurious with a shine job on boots, purses, and jackets, or heighten shoes up to 1.25 inches so customers can finally reach the height required to vote.
