My Shoe Hospital, a 100-year-old company founded in Houston, Texas, has introduced a new online service which takes shoe repair into the 21st century. The company aims to be a “one-stop shop” for all shoe repair needs.
For the relaunch of MyShoeHospital.com, the service is offering free heel repairs to every new customer. To start a shoe repair, customers need only visit My Shoe Hospital’s website. FedEx will then ship the shoes free of charge, using a postage-paid repair bag paid for by My Shoe Hospital, who will then assess, clean and repair broken or worn items.
“At My Shoe Hospital, we factory refurbish tens-of-thousands of shoes, boots, belts and handbags every month. Thanks to modern tech we are now able to offer our top-notch service to everyone in America,” said Carroll Kelly, My Shoe Hospital CEO.
Kelly also discussed the cost savings and environmental benefits of shoe repair. “Not only will you save a lot of money, but you are helping the environment. We don’t think people realize how much toxic waste is used and how many animals must die in order for a pair of shoes to be manufactured.”
My Shoe Hospital has pledged to donate $1 of every repair to Food For The Poor, one of the world’s largest relief organizations.
