I wish you were in a better situation to send repairs to the US, I have heard it is so hard to find quality workmanship on high end shoes in HK from other people returning home to the US...we have many customers working for Coke and other large corps in HK who on return for meeting etc. will bring their shoes in for repair while in ATL to insure they are fixed correctly.
Yup, you hit the nail on the head. I'll be in NYC in a few weeks. Could anyone recommend a good cobbler there who can turn my shoe around quickly? I plan on getting some non-slip rubber soles for my new shoes.
