1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    I just landed in a new city, so rather then take a risk with an unfamiliar local cobbler, I thought I could ship the shoes for repair. I'm looking for sole repair and general restoration. An internet search found NuShoe, Resole America, and Bespoke Shoe Care (South Pasadena, California).

    Do you have experience with them or any other reliable vendor?

    Where are you? Lots of people here say good things about B. Nelson http://www.bnelsonshoes.com/high_grade_shoes.asp

    Thanks for the response! I looked into the reviews. The early ones, circa 2010, are all good. But the more recent ones, are mixed (here). Yelp users rate B Nelson at three stars, which fits with the recent mixed responses I read elsewhere. The complaints -- lost shoes, long turnaround, shoddy work -- could be the result of work overload. Maybe B Nelson is suffering due to their own success?

    Not sure but you're right, the recent reviews sure aren't great.
