life09:11How dress shoes are professionally restoredAllen Edmonds has been making men's shoes since 1922. The brand is commonly the go-to option for a start...er pair of dress shoes. Preston Soto is the founder of The Elegant Oxford, a company in San Diego that specializes in premium shoe shines, dyes, and artisan patinas for quality men's brands. Today, Soto will show us how he reshapes a pair of Allen Edmonds Carlyles that is bent out of shape and needs to be resoled. He’ll also recolor the dress shoes so that they can be transformed into a pair that looks brand new. The shoes will then be donated to individuals preparing to enter the workforce to give them a second life.
