These women's Bandolino stacked loafers have been nice shoes and the leather uppers are still in really good shape. However, the top-piece/top-lift of both heels came off on the same day this past week. Please see attached photos.
Can these be repaired? Is it something I could do myself? I'm not a cobbler or shoe-repair person but I'm reasonably proficient at do-it-yourself-type stuff. How would these be repaired? I'm thinking that a stick-on or glue-on replacement wouldn't work very well. Are there replacement top-pieces that are a tap-in style with prongs inserted into those four holes in each heel? If so, where can I get them? The heels measure 1 5/8 inches x 1 5/8 inches (or 4 cm x 4 cm). If I should use a tap-in type replacement, do I just need to clean/ream out the four existing holes and then tap on the new top-pieces? Maybe apply a little glue to each prong?
Thank you very much in advance for the help. It is greatly appreciated!
