How Bootylicious

ShareThis

Just when you’ve found your ideal boots for the year, something about them will turn out to be not-quite-ideal after all. The calf will be too wide on those amazing Jimmy Choos. Or the kitten heel on the perfect Warren Edwards pony boots will be a bit low to be truly sexy. Or those drop-dead stretch-microfiber stilettos from Martinez Valero, which were such a bargain, will bag at the ankle. Lucky for you and your gams, Angelo’s Shoe Repair can revamp them all. Calves can be tapered ($45–$75) or stretched ($35); heels can be given a bit of extra height ($20–$35); the toe box can be lifted and widened ($12); and insteps can be reconfigured to fit your arch ($12). They’ll have you kicking up your heels in a matter of days. 666 Fifth Avenue, at 53rd Street, subway level (212-757-6364).
