In addition to the soup-to-nuts repairs offered, Cobbler Concierge just introduced custom embossing for wallets and small leather good, plus a genius "Cobbler Closet" feature that lets you send in your summer and fall kicks to be repaired and stored during the winter months—a godsend for freeing up room in your closet for those heavy-duty boots. The storage option costs $5 per pair per month (with a three-month minimum), but the extra shelf space is priceless.
