Attached are photos of a pair of 4-year-old Salvatore Ferragamo loafers I had restored at my local shoe repair shop in Indianapolis. Â The repairman replaced the heel, the sole, and gave them a shine for under US$50. Â These were my wedding shoes. Â Though I have discontinued my allegiance to Ferragamo (since being exposed to this forum), I am attempting to extend the life of the pairs that remain in my closet, if only to give my more well-made shoes a break from time to time. Had to use the light over the kitchen sink to get these pics right. Â Pardon the dishes.
