Repair If You Care: Vibram Launch Free Virtual Cobbler Consultation Service for Resoles
If your sneakers and shoes are looking a little worse for wear, don’t throw them out just yet! Shoe repairs have been carried out by skilled cobblers for hundreds of years, and a bit of TLC can bring your favourite beaters back to life while saving them from hitting landfill. Sole suppliers Vibram have just launched a free virtual consultation service that can connect you to local shoe repair shops and craftspeople who can help save your soles!
As part of the ‘Repair If You Care’ program, a one-on-one virtual consultation with Vibram’s master cobblers will assess the wear to your shoes and then recommend the best course of action. You can then access Vibram’s extensive network of shoe repair shops and independent cobblers across North America and Europe (with more regions expected to come) to get the job done!
‘Vibram has continued its dedication to a more sustainable approach, as well as providing support for the shoe repair business by giving the sector enhanced visibility by renewing consumer interest in the world of artisanal footwear,’ says Vibram’s Global Chief Brand Officer and President, Fabrizio Gamberini.
