Terms about Shoe and Boot Repairing

There are times when repairing a shoe or boot makes more sense than purchasing a replacement. This is why there are professional cobblers located all over the world, who specialize in fixing the heels, soles, and seams of dress shoes and boots. Many women and men acquire the assistance of cobblers in order to have holes patched, laces replaced, cracks repaired, and zippers fixed. These specialists often assist by cleaning and polishing leather shoes as well. Below you will find some terms that pertain to shoe and boot repair.

  • Aglet – A protective tip or plastic covering on the end of a shoelace. Sometimes aglets are even made from metal. While these tips do help prevent the shoelaces from fraying, they also make sneakers, boots, and men’s dress shoes easier to lace.
  • Goring – This is an elasticized portion of material that is typically used on shoes to connect two pieces of the upper together. Often used on dress shoes, the goring basically eliminates the need for laces, and makes the shoe opening flexible for easy slipping on and off.
  • Shank – A part of the shoe that runs between the outsole and heel. The shank typically sits or rests under the arch of the foot. This way it provides the shoe or boot with structure, and helps support the foot.
  • Vamp – This is part of a shoe or boot’s upper. Typically the vamp covers the entire top of the foot. It is commonly referred to when addressing leather boots for women and men.
  • Spats – These are fabric or leather accessories that are sometimes worn over shoes. Spats are typically dressy or ornate, and are placed over the ankle area to cover the throat of the shoe. However, spats are sometimes used as protective accessories as well.
