It was Benjamin Franklin who famously quipped, "Opposable thumbs, shoes, and cookies for breakfast are the only things separating us from the animals." Tie some dignity to your feet with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of shoe-repair services at Nobile Shoes in North Palm Beach. Prices may vary slightly based on shoe condition.
Nobile Shoes' capable repair team gussies up men’s and women's casual and formal footwear thorough shines, repairs, and resoles in a cobbling practice established in 1978. The seasoned fixers can mend a pair of men’s or women's leather or rubber-split heels ($20–$22) before counseling them through any trauma brought on by years of being walked on. Faces reflect upon shoe surfaces after a shine ($5–$6), and a refinish ($25–$30) touches up blemishes lingering on worn boot skins. A thorough shampoo clean ($20) can further spruce up the soles of sneakers, hiking boots, or treasured fuzzy wildebeest slippers for a sleek, new-shoe look.
