Before settling on shoe making, the first cobblers were the original renaissance men, laying down irregularly sized paving stones, baking delicious and thick-crusted pastries, and campaigning for the inclusion of bacon and eggs in every salad. Celebrate the hard-working cobbler’s true calling with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get $28 worth of shoe repair at Naperville Shoe, Luggage, Tailoring & Repairs.
Naperville Shoe, Luggage, Tailoring & Repairs lovingly resurrects shoes, purses, and pieces of luggage, rewarding their loyal service with a material makeover. Pairs of shoes may receive a heel fix-up ($22–$30 for men; $10–18 for women) to mitigate the consequences of friction and gravity, or a total heel and full-sole overhaul ($68–$75 for men), which counters erosion brought on by walking over rough concrete or tap dancing with sea urchins. In cases of faded suede, a dye application ($30 for men; $25 for women) brings back the warm chestnut browns and midnight blacks of yesteryear’s leather. Or opt for new elastics on shoe backs ($17 for two) to help restore spring to your strut. A complimentary shoe buffing accompanies all repairs, sending feet back into the world looking snug, sharp, and shiny enough to attract the notice of every handsome sock salesman.
