Dear PoP – Where Does One Get Their Shoes Resoled?


“So every six months to a year, I have to buy new shoes. I hate new shoes. They hurt to break in and once they’re broken in, the soles where down. I walk everywhere. Someone reminded me of being able to resole shoes. I thought this was a great idea. So my question to the collective readership is: where might I get my shoes resoled? Can any pair be resoled or does it require it to be a higher end style? In other words, can my sale rack DSW black men’s shoes be resoled within walking distance of CH or PW metros?”

Good question. If I ever had to get my shoes repaired I’d got to the store pictured above located on U Street between 11th and 10th because, uh, well it has the greatest name ever. But for those really in the know – where’s a good spot to get your shoes repaired? I’d be curious to know of really good recommendations even if they are not in CH or PW.
