I took my AE kingsleys to my cobbler and asked for new leather soles and heels ($75). I asked him if this included replacement of the corkbed, which I think is standard on these shoes (and maybe all AE welted shoes?). He says yes; no extra charge.
Is that usually the case? I haven't developed a relationship with this cobbler as I just moved to this area. After I get my shoes back, how can I be sure he actually put in the new corkbed?
