    I have a pair of AE oxfords whose heels are mostly gone. A cobbler told me he'd need to resole it and that would cost about half the price I paid to buy them. Any alternative solutions, like a

    Send to AE for recrafting. They’ll do the heel only if you designate so.

    Find another local cobbler. Absent any unforseen complications they should charge around $25. ;)

    The heel is one piece with the sole. I think the cobbler was right that the whole sole must be replaced.

    Is this a leather or Dainite sole ?

    Are we talking $25 per shoe? or the pair? I was quoted $50 for my Florsheim Imperials (I was not wearing them at the time). Didn't think to ask if the $50 was per shoe or both. thanks

    I’ve never known them to replace one and not the other. Surely, they are quoting a pair of heels.

    The price I quoted was for the last pair of heels I had replaced...3 to 4 years back!
