What do you consider
When looking at your shoes?
Is it something to be repaired?
Or do you just want new?
Is it about the style and color?
Or the comfort of your feet?
Come to Alberto’s Boot and Shoe Repair
With sales that can’t be beat.
He has orthopedic and diabetic shoes.
When you have a need for them
He will help you too.
He has a full line of shoe care products.
Boots, chaps, purses and much more.
He is a leather craftsman.
Come look inside his store.
Most people know him by his name
The homeless may take a seat.
Cowboys, bikers and common folk
He doesn’t skip a beat.
He’s not in it for the money
But his craft is dying out.
He would like to teach his trade
So, they could fix his shoes.
And he wouldn’t be left out.
It really is the smile he wants
When helping people with their feet.
That’s where the satisfaction comes
And where he feels complete.
It’s amazing to see his dedication
For what he likes to do.
Surely it’s in his heart and “sole”
That he will fix shoes for you.
