repairing shoes

I love our shoe repair store in Santa Fe: it seems as though it's straight out of the 1950s.  The fact that it says on the door that it's been operated by the Ortega family since 1975 is neither here nor there: City Boot and Shoe Repair takes me straight back to stores that existed even further than this, in its placard advertising, its smells.  I save my shoes with holes in the soles and scuffed heels and all other malformations to bring here - and they manage to convey that the more worn and horrible they look, the more I must in fact love them since I've brought them in ...
