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]

Shoe repair while you wait in Manhattan?

I'm visiting Manhattan for a few days, and only have one pair of shoes. The stitching on one side has started to come apart, but I really like these shoes. I'd like to get them repaired, and not buy a new pair. Is there anywhere I can get my shoes repaired while I wait? If it helps, I'll be in the upper west side.

Online shoe repair services: good or bad?

I have come across a few online shoe repair services that seem to offer more bang for your buck than my local cobbler. Does anyone have good or bad experiences with sending off their shoes to be fixed (from a half-sole to a full recraft) that they can share? Assume I'm already aware that it's important to support local craftsmen when I can.
