  Q: Can I replace a broken stiletto heel tip?

  A: updated (02/02/2012)

Yes you can. Heel tips are usually made from one of two materials: plastic or metal. Replacing the heel tip can be done at home but can be a fiddle. Most heel tips are attached to the stiletto shoe via a pin. A pair of pliers will be required to pulled the heel tip out of the stiletto heel; with plastic heel tips, this can be problematic, as the heel tip may snap and leave it's pin in the pin slot. If you do manage to successfully remove the heel tip, then a small hammer will be required to hammer the new heel tip into the pin slot. Alternatively, you can save yourself the trouble and get a professional cobbler to replace the heel tip for you.
