Oh, the horror! - Page 2

A top quality shoe repair place can grind, or whatever the right term is, the leather smooth again, as if it never happened. I took a long deep gouge out of a brand new pair of E. Greens and nothing could help fill that divet. i finally took them to this shoe repair place and they buff-ed 'em smooth.

Did they call it a Noir Buff?

Wow. That's pretty vaclavian.

Yeah, they also left a film on the eyelets. Still, better a film on the eyelets than a kick in the Vass.

Oh, and then they asked me if I wanted a lug sole on that.

And I was like, "werd, can i get a lug sole with that?"

Then return them to Ralph Lauren when you grow tired of them...say hi to Todd for us!

Aportnoy, what a coincidence. I sent a pair of black cap-toes to Dimitri for his extremely-talented father to fix a nasty scratch (with the leather lifted) right in the middle of one toe cap. I had given up wearing them as the flaw was so obvious. Anyway, to make a long story short, they came back fixed, with any evidence of the scratch completely invisible from more than a foot away (they look perfect), and only just barely visible if you look hard for it really close up. Basically saved a pair of shoes.
