If you live in a city, and that city has been tormented all winter long by snow—and sleet and sludge—and you still have to do things like go to work and get groceries and run to the bank and basically live your life, your shoes will inevitably take a hit. The District Department of Transportation does the right thing by cleaning the streets and salting the roads, but that salt gets in your leather (or faux leather) footwear and starts to break it down. But hold on: You don’t have to throw everything out and start fresh next season. Instead, do some #adulting and go to a cobbler. Some of the best shoe doctors around can be found at Old Town Shoe & Luggage Repair. This store has been serving the D.C. area since the mid-‘90s, and employees are known for their exceptional craftsmanship and prompt service. You will save yourself time and money the next time the weather turns cold.
