Talk of the Town: Plenty of ‘sole’ at Alberto’s Boot & Shoe Repair

Jenny Schnabel

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.
