Why Repair? 5 Reasons to Repair Your Shoes

Updated: Dec 12, 2023

Here at Coblrshop we are obsessed with repair.

There are many reasons why repair may be your best option. Below, see our top 5.

(Of course, some shoes like the old running shoes you used to train for that 10k aren't suitable, but MOST shoes are)

5 Reasons to Repair your Shoes:

(1) Cost-effectiveness: Repairing shoes is generally cheaper than buying a new pair. This is especially true for high-quality shoes that may be expensive to replace. When you buy quality shoes, you should invest in maintenance.

(2) Environmental impact: When you repair your shoes instead of throwing them away, you're reducing your environmental impact. The fashion industry is one of the biggest polluters in the world, and reducing the number of shoes that end up in landfills makes a significant difference.

Manufacturing one pair of shoes has equivalent C02 emissions to driving 45 miles in a gas-powered car.

(3) Comfort: A worn-in pair of shoes can be more comfortable than a brand-new pair. By repairing your shoes, you can extend their lifespan and continue to enjoy those oh-so-comfy favorites.

(4) Sentimental value: Those shoes you bought on that memorable trip to New York and wore into the ground? Or those boots you bought at that boutique in London that can't be replaced? Fix 'em. Shoes have sentimental value and repairing them allows you to keep those memories alive.

(5) Style: Those custom cowboy boots you had made in Texas? Repair 'em. Unique or custom shoes are difficult to replace. Repairing these shoes can help you keep your unique personal style - a little bit of Western on Wednesdays and Mule Mondays.

Repair has many benefits for you, your shoes, and the environment.

Coblrshop can help you.

Your shoes and Mother Nature will thank you!
