G Move: Locking Down your Shoe Cobbler

It always amazes me on how many people don’t have a Shoe Cobbler locked down. And I mean even people that know what up don’t have it on Lock Down.

I remember when I was in NYC last summer, and I was visiting a friend who is probably a Top 50 International Playboy in all of America. The guy is G, travels all the time, makes dough, swoops Models, Custom Suits, smokes cigarettes; like I said, at most, only 49 people in all of America are a more highly rated International Playboy than this cat.

I needed a new heel on a pair of loafers that I did some damage, walking and stomping in Barcelona. So I asked my friend, “Do you have a Cobbler here on lock down?”

He didn’t. I almost slapped him.

Luckily, I got a guy in New York that I know, so everything worked out great.

However, I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a Cobbler on Lock.

Just yesterday, I dropped off four pairs of shoes to my guy for his old world craftsmanship and hung out with him for a while to hear stories of the old country. I even spoke a little Italian to him. (For style points, of course.)

The result:

Tax free purchases (paid in CASH of course)
Pro-Bono Shoe Shines
Multiple Pro-Bono hole punches in my belt (I have been really getting into tip top shape spending time at the newly re-opened Legendary 5th Street Gym in Miami Beach and Sparring in Bogotá)

Plus I got to hear some stories of back when America was great (pre-skinny jeans, pre-glittery shirts, pre-Bottle Service, pre-smoking bans, you know, back when there was freedom) and support a dying art in a country that forgot what quality is.

I have done my good deed for the day.

    I’m a young prototype G, and sorry to say I don’t have a cobbler on lock at the moment. My Ferragamo’s need work though, who’s your guy in NYC? Maybe I’ll drop by.

    Most of what you write strikes a cord with me, man. Keep it up!
