Shoe repair in the Portland/Vancouver area


After trying several repair places in my neighborhood, I found that many places would not repair my stiletto heels because they "didn't have that size heel tip" available. Could I bring one with me? How frustrating!

Luckily, several of my students have found repair shops with more intelligent repair folks. I have not tried all of them yet, but so far, so good!
