There’s a great shoe repair shop near the salon – Anthony’s Shoe Service. They are traditional craftsmen with a flair for the modern. In addition to the usual polishing, resoling and repairs, the owner is an official Vibram Cobbler. The wide variety of shoe sole textures, treads and colors that Vibram makes can re-create a pair of shoes or boots. 

 I recently needed my favorite pair of cognac wingtip boots resoled. I decided to switch it up a bit by going to a Vibram sole – I knew I wanted blue, but I had no idea there could be so many choices. With some patient help from the owner we decided on an eco-sole in marine blue. The result has been great. I think I’ll go for red on the next pair.
