Cobbler´s Den Shoe & Luggage Repair

Shoe Repair


Better leather shoes are truly an investment, and maintaining your footwear with an exceptional resoling partner makes sense. We would like to be that partner. If your thin-soled Italian loafers have returned from the local cobbler with a giant slab of leather somehow attached to the bottom, you need us. We buy thin” leather directly from the tanners in Italy, and the result is something that our customers call “better than new”… because they feel like already broken in. Have a pair of those “substantial” American made leather shoes from Wisconsin? (Allen Edmunds) We will ,, resole, and refinish. With the finest materials available, and all in less than one weeks. We specialize in Cole Haan, Bally, Santoni, Johnston & Murphy, Bruno Magli, Ferragamo, Mezlan, and shoes carried by better retailers like Nordstrom. Full Sole & Heels: Super Prime leather soles and correct replacement heels, plus factory refinish Half soles & Heels: same as above Combination Full Soles & Heels: Super Prime leather with rubber “insert” in the forefoot area Flex Leather: Great for the really premium brands. Heels: Rubber or Combination heels (leather with rubber plug in the back half) Sole Savers: very thin rubber “half sole” that many people put on brand new shoes to preserve the outsole, and provide better traction.

Shoe Shine Service


For many years the shoe shining service or shoe shine stand in our society has slowly evaporated into the mists of time it seems. There was a time when a shoe shine stand would be a common site in public areas, such as bus and train stations and many other visible places in town. Now when we think of shoe shining, we tend to think of some sort of old fashion trade that has disappeared. We think of a past era akin to the good old days when things were simpler and there was true quality and sincerity in what people did. Well times have changed. We are a more cynical generation, this is the world of fast food, television and disposable items. When do people have time to sit and get their shoes shined in today’s hectic society? When do people actually receive a quality service for a great price nowadays? When does somebody actually have any real sense of pride in what they do anymore ? We at the Cobblers Den are quality minded and actually take pride in our work, we clean the shoe to remove any dirt or dust, then we use a dry cleaning agent to remove any old wax build up on the leather, next we condition the leather to make it resilient and soft and then lastly we seal the shoe with a high quality leather luster cream to polsih the leather to a high finish using our horse hair brushes. That’s what we call a shoe shine, the process will give life to your shoes and make them last much longer.

 

Zippers Repaired


There are two kinds of zippers:

  • Open end, a.k.a. separating, such as the zippers on most coats and jackets. When closing a separating zipper, first one grabs the puller or pull tab with thumb and finger and moves the slider down as far as it will travel, until it hits the box and stops. Then the pin of the free half of the zipper is inserted in the slider until it is aligned and engaged. Then the slider is pulled up, which in turn forces the zipper's many teeth to interlock to create the chain--the continuous piece that is formed when both halves of a zipper are meshed together. Top stops--two fixed devices fastened to the opposite end of a zipper--prevent the slider from coming off the chain.
  • Closed end, a.k.a. non-separating, such as are almost universal on pants and the backs of dresses. A closed end zipper has no pin, but otherwise closely resembles an open end style.

When a damaged or worn slider does not push the chain halves together just so, the teeth are prevented from engaging one another. New slider tolerances are tight and precise to ensure proper closing action, but with repeated use and twisting a slight widening of critical slider gaps in two separate planes can occur. Often these gaps can be narrowed and proper zipping action restored.
If it does not work then we can replace the slider, and or replace the zipper for your shoes, handbags, jackets, and luggage. Just bring the article in and have one of our cobbler’s give you a free quote.
