Just the idea of resoling shoes these days is somewhat "old school." When shoes wear out or start falling apart, most people throw them away or donate them, right? Or, you can take them to Model Shoe Renew, have a nice little chat with Judy the cobbler or Peter the owner and rest assured that they can fix them up for you. You pay a very reasonable fee (certainly less than the price of a new pair of comparable shoes) and come back to find a gleaming pair of shoes with nice new soles. They'll likely last you another few years. The "renew" in the shop's name is key — Model Shoe Renew really does give life back to an old, tired pair of shoes. It also does repairs quickly and reasonably — whether it's a bag with a broken buckle, shoes that need some stitching, or boots with a broken zipper. The shop carries a large selection of luggage and more shades and sizes of shoelaces than you could ever imagine.
