Before & After: Shortening My Wedge Boots

Aldo ‘Rubin’ 

(old, now modified & no longer available*)

If you’ve been following along on my boot-lowering/heel-shortening process, you know about these boots.  If not, you can read about it HERE.

I finally picked up my boots after having the heel shortened on them at Bells Corners Shoe Repair in Ottawa.  Alex and Tony did a great job and I’m so pleased as these boots were basically written off to the land of decorative shoes for almost four years.  You can see me wearing them–the one & only timeHERE.

As promised, I took photos of before and after to share here as I’ve never had boots lowered before and didn’t even really know if it was possible.  It is and I considered it well worth it to do so since they are brand new, real leather and boots that I’m still loving many years after getting them.

Read on to see the before and after transformation (also note that the photos I took before were pre-DSLR-photography class and my post photos are much better, if I do say so myself).


* Note: it says on the website they are 5 inch wedges but I measured my measuring tape before taking them in to be modified and they were a solid 6 inches.
