How to you protect/preserve your leather soled shoes?

  1. Dear Bloggers,

    I bought these beautiful over the knee lambskin Chanel boots last season and the soles are already starting to wear down and the tip of the shoe starting to get rubbed and soft. I am a little ignorant about these matters but to all you ladies buy leather soled shoes and then take them to a shoe repair person to have different soles added, or how do you protect your shoes from turning into thin-soled little nothings? Or, is one supposed to just replace the sole later when it wears away? Teach me. And if any of you ladies do use someone and are local to the SF Bay Area, tell me who you use please.

    I am also looking for a good drycleaner/alterations in the area and a good hairdresser and a good furrier, someone to fix a fur coat.

    Thank you!
  2. Your cobbler can put a thin synthetic material over the soles of your shoes to protect them.
  3. I always take my good, leather soled shoes to a shoe repair and have them put on rubber half soles. They make the soles last longer that they would last otherwise.
