"We specialize in what makes us different."
Valenti, owner B. Nelson Shoes.
B. Nelson specializes in factory method resoling. Each pair
of shoes is fitted with the proper last. The sole is removed,
cork footbeds are stripped and replaced, and even welts
and heel bases are replaced when necessary. We use a minimum
of 19 steps in order to complete our resoling process. Our
process is so detail-oriented that we even take the time
to pre-grove a channel before stitching the new sole on.
This is done so that the stitching of the new sole is below
the surface of the leather to allow maximum wear on your
repair. The final step is to remove the last so that the
original size and shape of the shoe are not altered.
We are the only shoe repair company that uses wooden lasts.
Lasts are what all high-grade shoe companies use when manufacturing
their products. They vary in 1/2 size increments in both
length and width. Repair companies use metal jacks which
only come in two men's sizes: medium and large. This is
the reason that in the past you may have experienced a change
in the shape of your shoe or perhaps experienced a lumpiness
inside. The lumpiness is caused when the repairman shifts
or patches the cork footbeds rather than stripping and reapplying
them in the way the manufacturers did when the shoe was
created. This original process is what B. Nelson Shoes applies
in our repair procedure.
