Jack has been my shoe repair go-to guy for almost 10 years. In my mind, he’s magic. He takes my much-loved, well-worn shoes and makes them new and beautiful again. He has breathed life into my favorite cowboy boots, again and again and again.
I walked in to his shop today, finally remembering to pick up the shoes I dropped off weeks ago. “Ready for your boots?” he asked as I walked in. “Nope, not boots, picking up shoes today.” “Are you sure? You always wear boots.”
I guess I wear them more than I thought.
