The advantage of a quality formal leather shoe is that it can last
for decades due to parts being easily replaced by a professional
cobbler. The parts which can be replaced on a formal leather shoe
are as follows,
- Heel tip
- Leather sole
The one part of the shoe that is not replaced is the leather upper.
Therefore, it is essential that this part of the shoe is maintained
with care, as once the leather upper is damaged, it is virtually
impossible to repair.
