Can these shoes be saved?

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]

Where can I buy women's size 5 hiking boots in LA today?

Help! Where can I buy women's size 5 hiking boots in Los Angeles today? For some reason it's really hard to find shoes in my size, let alone shoes that are reasonably priced and for a specific purpose without ordering them online. Unfortunately, the window for ordering online has passed. Walking shoes will do as long as my size is in stock. Where can I go shopping tonight or tomorrow night and know they'll have something in my size? Small size shoe wearers, WHERE DO YOU SHOP? (As always, cheaper is better)

Do you like internet shoe hunts?

These Indigo by Clark's Plush Sateen in Black [size 8 Medium!] are the black shoes I keep at work at all times. I have a few pairs of black and brown under my desk, but these shoes are perfect. So so comfortable. Go with skirts, skirt suits, pants, anything. Nondescript, but classy. And I've killed them. I need new ones. I have boring normal feet-this shouldn't be so hard. [more inside]

Noisy men’s shoes as a status symbol?

In my workplace, it seems that for males, the higher up you are in the hierarchy, the noisier are the shoes, almost as if it’s in the job description. Middle managers shoes tend to make a bearable noise level, but when a male VP walks by, I could swear he’s wearing high heels. Are quality men’s shoes noisier? Or is this just that executives tend to prefer noisy loafers by design?

How can I make my shoes smaller?

I have two pairs of leather ballet flats that I purchased off the internet. I've worn each of them a couple times, but unfortunately, I've realized that they are both about 1/2-size too large. Is there a way I can make them smaller? Can I put an insole or something in them? Is this something a shoe repair place can fix? I paid about $110 for each pair, so If I can fix them for something under $40 a pair, I'd consider that worth paying (less would be better of course). Otherwise, I'll consider this a lesson learned.

Comfortable shoes for NYC businessman edition.

I just trudged 3/4 of a mile down 42nd street. My fancy black dress shoes (Allen Edmonds) are NOT cut out for this. My pinky toes have been replaced by blisters. What are the most comfortable shoes I can wear to work? I work in the financial industry but the dress code is business casual: slacks, button down shirt, maybe jacket or tie, rarely a full suit. Both black and brown shoes are needed, men's size 12. Must withstand walking in NYC.

How to walk quietly in kitten heels

Meow! How do you walk quietly in kitten heels? Something like this or this? Is it a trick of sizing? Of walking a little differently? This would be my go-to style of heel for many occasions... if I can hide the slap-clack slap-clack sound which is a bit too much like $2 Walmart flip-flops.

Suggestions for where to buy comfy work shoes

Shoe question - I like brands such as Clarks, Born, Dansko, etc. for work and was wondering if anyone has suggestions of where to buy them. I'm looking for a bargain on these brands but with a good variety of styles to choose from. Also if you have a favorite brand you'd like to share, that would be great. As much as I love the way heels and strappy shoes look, they aren't practical for all day wear and I'm a sissy about foot pain. I need shoes that look professional but are hopefully not too masculine and are going to be comfortable all day.

Hard to find liners

Has anyone who wears women's shoe size 7 1/2 or smaller found a low rise/hidden shoe liner that doesn't show with flat pumps? (you know, ballet-style shoes, heelless pumps, whatever you want to call them). I just tried No Nonsense liners (for sizes 4-10) and they show. A lot. And my pumps are not even the kind that's extra low on the sides or toes. [more inside]

Difference between $100 men's dress shoes and $500 men's dress shoes?

What is the noticeable difference between a $100 pair of men's dress shoes and a $500 pair of men's dress shoes? I wear standard, department store $100 dress shoes to work every day (I used to wear Cole Haan; now I wear Johnston & Murphy). When the $100 shoe soles wear out, I have them re-soled. They do end up looking beat-up fairly quickly, even with polishing. I have been told that, if I spend more money on the shoes, they will last longer and the investment will be worth it. [more inside]

Where can i get a shoe widener tool?

I am looking for a shoe stretcher that will stretch so i can make shoes fit wider without having to wear them in. Not looking for the whole shoe stretcher, as that seems quite the overkill.

Stinkfoot (Duhn duh-duh-duhhn)

After working in the rain for 3 days straight and never having enough time to dry all the way out during those 3 days, one of my work boots smells punguntly of mildew. There's no footy smell, only mildew. Is there any way to get rid of it and save the boot? I imagine the mildew isn't doing any favours for the binding or the fabrics either.
