Can a cobbler fix a farting shoe?

I can’t walk around like “darn shoes! It’s the shoes. I’m fine. It’s this damn boot. Sorry.” They were Frye ankle boots I got on clearance but I’m hoping to get another year out of them. Can a cobbler fix this atrocity?

(Slinks away, farting gently with every left footfall.)

*cough* Abso-toot-ly. *cough*

If you cannot find an actual cobbler one of the quickie shoe repair places in a mall should be able to do this.

Frye recommends for repairs. Looks like you could fill out their form and they could potentially help (they do repair work beyond resoling) if there's nothing locally available.

Possibly a very obvious suggestion but have you tried putting baby powder/cornstarch between the foot bed and the actual inner sole of the boot? That has been the source of all my shoe farts to date.

:: thinks wistfully of the super-comfy, but super-farty Aerosoles sandals that were, alas, impossible to wear to work in a quiet library::
