While we all take great pains to pick out the right suit or dress for a special occasion, there’s no doubt that the one piece of wardrobe that is going to have biggest impact on our comfort is our shoes. An uncomfortable pair of dress shoes can ruin your whole day. Aside from the pain, they can make us fidget and appear uncomfortable. Blisters from shoes rubbing can last for a week or more. With our everyday shoes, we have a chance to break them in by wearing them on a regular basis. Formal occasion shoes might only come out a couple of times a year and may never see enough wear to...

Vibram Shoes Sole Replacement and Upgrades

Posted by on Jun 2, 2016 in Shoe Repair | Comments Off on Vibram Shoes Sole Replacement and Upgrades

Why does NuShoe use Vibram replacement soles? Vibram is the gold standard of shoe soles. It is used by over 1000 manufacturers.

Two years later, he introduced Vibram rubber soles with his patented Carrarmato tread design to replace the hard leather and metal hobnail soles which were being used at the time.

Recovering Value in Damaged Footwear Shipments

Posted by on May 11, 2016 in Shoe Repair | Comments Off on Recovering Value in Damaged Footwear Shipments

Shoes are made all over the world and shipped all over the world. Whether they ride in a container aboard a ship or a truck from Ohio to California, the period during which the shoes are being shipped puts them at risk. Whether there’s a truck accident or a tiny hole in the side of an overseas shipping container, there’s always a chance of the shoes or sneakers getting wet, or just moist enough to allow mold to grow. That doesn’t necessarily mean they are ruined. Often they can be salvaged and reconditioned to be as good as new. NuShoetm Inspect and Correct specializes in large volume...
