AH One Shoes based in Springfield, VAAnyone have a cobbler rec that’s not Bedo’s or sky valet?
I think you would wind up on your ass a lot if you had metal taps on the heel. That is, if you are a heel striker. I imaging even those who run on their toes still land on the heels when walking. Any tile, marble, or even wood floor would likely be way too slippery with metal heels. Everything I've seen has either a rubber cutout that can be separately replaced or a full rubber or leather heel.Are there sunken taps for the heels as well? Home from work now and saw that all taps are the tracked in kind.
I can confirm that ah one does sunken front taps. However I read on the Alden thread that he was closing his shop due to health reasons.AH One Shoes based in Springfield, VA
A falling out between the brothers is why Aram set up a separate shop from Sky Valet. They use Redenbach soles and can do lulu taps (sunken metal toe taps) among other changes such as swapping out speed hooks for eyelets and vice versa. Lots of sole and heel options, especially for Aldens. The Alden DC shop recommends them if you don't want to send shoes back to Alden for full refurbishment.
