My lovely open-toed Camper shoe had an encounter with an unpaved parking lot resulting in a big gouge through the leather exposing the blue foam underneath. I took it took my local cobbler and all he could do was glue the sticking-out bit of foam down so it sticks out less. The blue gouge is still prominent. What can be done to repair/refashion these shoes? Considering DIY options but suspect I'd get better results leaving it to a professional. Pics inside. [more inside]

Who is the best cobbler in Victoria BC? I have a pair of Black Spot Unswooshers that I like the look of, but are falling apart prematurely. The seam along the top of the toe is starting to come apart, and I'd like to have a cobbler fix them before the tear goes too far. Can anyone recommend a skilled Cobbler in Victoria BC? I'd like the repair to be as inconspicuous as possible.
My expensive ($140!) flats are falling apart after just a few months of wear, and I love them. It is incredibly hard to find flats (my default summer/autumn/spring shoe) that do not give me stabby tendonitis pains in my arches. It is even harder to find cute, plain, black flats that go with everything in my closet. I'd hate to lose them. Can they be saved? [more inside]
It's good to walk a mile in another person's shoes, because then you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.
