View Full Version : Need zippers in tall boots fixed by Wednesday- suggestions?

I'm in the Fairfield County (CT) area, and need them fixed no later than Wednesday. The zipper is pretty much completely busted and will need a full repair... had to show with black vet wrap today, but would prefer not to next week! Any suggestions? None of the 3 shoemakers I tried today were able to do it.

I'd try more shoemakers in your area. When I needed new elastic on half-chaps and the tackshop that does repairs had had them for three weeks without repairing them, my mom took them to the shoe shop at the mall. They did really good work and in about an hour. If you don't need a zipper replaced, just the pull tab piece, you could also try a luggage repair shop.

Realistically, I think you're looking at another show with vetwrap.

On Tuesday morning, you could call Pisano (don't have the number where I thought I did - West Chester/ Malvern, PA area) and see what their schedule looks like to get you fixed up after Wednesday's show.

Good luck!
