OK guys, basically I have this pair of suede shoes. As you can see, the thin sole is basically a no-no; it throws the look off balance and is not healthy to the longevity of my feet and the shoe itself. I would like to add a heel, but I suppose that would mean taking off the entire rubber sole and replacing it with a new one? If that's the case, would it be too much to ask/ too expensive to do that? Btw I'm in Singapore; I haven't come across any sort of cobbler before
Thank you in advance. P.S. pardon the state of the room

These are glue jobs. Why sink more money in into those? Yes, $140 (CDN) would do it, but glued.
I would recommend you invest in a new pair with the heel and sole you desire.
