It’ll be here before you know it. So if you’re in need of a few ideas on what to give (or in some cases, what to put on your own list) this year, this is the place to be for the next couple weeks. Our annual 12 days of Dappered covers one item each week-day between now and December 20th. That’ll leave some time for shipping if you’re the last minute type. All will be reasonably affordable. See the growing archive here.
Cars are a lot like shoes. The guys who REALLY like their car, often also really like to wash their car. But most (most) would agree that a professionally washed and detailed car is on a whole other level.
Same theory goes for shoes. Plenty of guys do in fact enjoy shining their own shoes. But if you’ve got a shoe fanatic on your list, and there’s a traditional cobbler in town, give the cobbler a call and ask about gift certificates. Some offer gift certificates or small gift cards that allow the recipient to come in, drop off a pair or two of their favorite shoes, and the cobbler takes it from there.
For a minimal cost of usually between $5 – $15, the shoes will come back looking even better than they looked when they were fresh out of the box. Old fashioned shoe repair shops are experts in their field. Sometimes the work they do can be nothing short of magic.
