Heel Before Buying New Shoes


U.S. Tariffs Set To Hike Cost For Footwear, Repairs Cost Less

With the cost of new footwear set to rise, thanks to a tarriff battle between the White House and China, shops like Shaheen Brothers Shoes continue to pitch a cost-friendly alternative–repair your shoes.

Eli Shaheen says a good pair of shoes that may cost $150, can be repaired for $50; and under his care, the old will look like new.

Shaheen told Eyewitness News reporter Ben Dennis that when purchasing new shoes, look for footwear with support in order to avoid aches and pains that ultimately may lead to a doctor’s visit.
