Hi everyone!

I just purchased a pair of Lanvin flats and based on the recommendations of PFers, I would like have them protectively soled before I wear them. However, I've never had to do this with really expensive shoes, so I'm not sure where to go.

If anyone has any recommendations for the DC area, I would be greatly appreciative. Otherwise, I'll try calling around NMs or Saks to figure out where they send their shoe repairs to.

Thanks!

I had my shoe SA recommend a place in Bethesda, but I really want to go closer in. (Yeah, Bethesda is out there for me!)

What is the name of the place in Alexandria. I think I know the place you are talking about. I have seen some of their work. NM recommends a place in Rosslyn, not sure of the name.

Unfortunately, I don't know the name....but I recall Nordstrom recommending the same place a while back. I'll try to give them a call to find out who it is. I might just drop them off at Nordstrom to send out to the cobbler. They said that he picks up on Tuesday and drops off on Friday; and also picks up on Friday and drops up on the following Tuesday.
