I see this at least once a week and this problem is not only unnecessary but also seems to be gender neutral. In walks a patient, with an otherwise very expensive ($400+) or even an inexpensive (<$25) pair of shoes, having an almost irreparably worn down heel.
Don’t let this be your shoe. Instead, march your excessively worn heels directly to your local shoe repair shop. They’re professionals and for less than a bargain matinee and a large bag of refillable popcorn, they can create a good as new, flat level heel. Now isn’t that worth it?
In San Francisco’s Financial District, check out Jack’s Shoe Service (415.989.9434) or Anthony’s Shoe Service (415.781.1338). I have used and recommend both. Check em’ out.
