    I'm seeking a good quality cobblers in London in order to get a rubber sole fitted to a pair of new double-leather brogues. The sole I'm thinking of has the logo "Indiana". It's really excellent, thin, hardly noticable, and will save at least one re-soling. There's no way I'm going to risk it with Timpson's (they don't have it anyway and it is simply glued on) and my local so-called cobbler is clueless. Swaying slightly, with bloodshoot eye, he opened a drawer and mumbled something about "heels like this" that he could "try" to fit, then shrugged his shoulders. A sideline - he mainly cuts keys. I departed like scalded cat. If no joy, then I'll send them to the factory.
