Javier, a cobbler working out of a shoe repair store in Manhattan, New York, says he was born to be a zapatero, a cobbler, and repair shoes is his way to bring renewed life to tired shoes to serve longer to their owners.
Yo crecí llevando zapatos al zapatero en mi ciudad natal, Caracas. Esta vez, de aventura en New York con mi linda novia, este amable zapatero que encontré en Manhattan le dio a mis viejos zapatos algunos años mas de vida.
I grew up bringing shoes to the cobbler, el zapatero, often, while living in my hometown Caracas. This time, adventuring at the big city with my love, he indeed gave my old G-Rock Brutini shoes a few more years of walking, when I needed them the most.
