I recall reading a post where you could get Ed Greens totally refurbished for $300; J & M will give a full factory refurbish for $185 or something like that for the Aristocrat line; Allen Edmonds I believe is in the $100s range as well. So, I was wondering: Is shoe refurbishment even worth it nowadays, what with Bluefly, outlet stores, Ebay, etc. in our midst? I mean, is it worth it to refurbish EGs for $300 when you could get a brand new pair for 4 - $500? I'm ignorant as to the answer to this question, which is why I ask it.
