Q: Can anyone recommend any good cobblers in Beijing?

I've got at least half a dozen shoes with broken heels, souls and holes in them. I've brought them to my local cobbler before but they broke again after a day. I'm willing to spend a bit extra to ensure they're fixed properly. It'll still be cheaper than buying new shoes.

Well, in Beijing, you know there are two major outlet stores, the silk market and one that's near BFE. They have shoe repair in the shoe departments, they are good, I've had alot of work done by them. On the flip side, try buying shoes on Taobao, or go to Beijing South, and take the North exit walk out and go straight across the street. You will see a lrge shoe outlet center. If you know how to bargain, you can walk out with 6 pairs of high heels that are ok quality for around 100 rmb.
Then who needs shoes fixed, just be a fashionable Lolitta.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
