I bought these shoes about a year ago from sale, but they've been laying on my closet floor since they rub my ankles raw. So I had to choose between giving them away or coming up with a way to fix them!
I found a bag of leather pieces from my mom's sewing closet and got an idea to glue patches to the shoes so that the edges of the shoes wouldn't be so sharp. First I made an template form paper and once I was happy with it I cut the pieces from the leather and glued them on place with super glue.
I've only gotten to use the fixed shoes for few time,s but I have to say that now they feel much more comfortable than before, even though I still wouldn't wear them to hiking! :P
