i never thought this would happen to me from my favorite cobbler (not done by him sadly, but his younger worker) but holy cow, it sure did! i really don't mean to sound whiny or anything but i'm very upset right now. my brand new nude yoyos, black patent VPs and blue pigalles 70 which i have yet to wear b/c i only would do so when i get their soles fixed. now that they're fixed, i have a major problem to fix, which is to unfix them! holy cow, those new rubber soles look like crap on the shoes (i can hear my heart crying and bleeding out loud) and especially so on the nude yoyos and blue pigalles. the rubber soles fixed on my nude yoyos are in natural light tan color which is not the same color as the wood trimming of the nudes. so obviously in different color, my cobbler went to file the wood trimming and made the wood trimming match to the rubber soles' color! AND it looks worst - it makes no sense for my wood trimming + soles to stand out more than my nude patent yoyos? now the color is even brighter than the nude and it's even more obvious that i had my soles done (looks bright and thick at the side angles). and my blue pigalles - the black rubber soles put on the bottom are thick. the wood trimming of the blue pigalles is painted in black so now the soles look like a puddle of black oil smacked onto the soles of my shoes. it looks weird and especially thick at the side angles - i just couldn't live with it! :s not forgetting that the soles on my VPs are also messed up - they are short in length and it looks and feels so strange. i asked my cobbler and he said they're fine, too long and it'll look weird. even my mom also said so but i just have a funny and negative feeling about them. i've been trying to 'psycho' myself into accepting them but i can't do that. it's been about 2 days now and i can't get to sleep properly without having to worry about them. i am going to bring them back tomorrow to have them redone. i only hope this time it would be better and that i won't be this upset anymore.. PS: i haven't had my yellow patent simple pumps done yet, i don't know what i should do now since the cobbler i always go to messed them up!
