Well... If you're broke and need some shoe repair, look no further than the "Do It Yourself (well sort of) Shoe Repair" course at the University of Serxy Druck Heo. (OR UofSDH for short)

Step one: find a broken ass shoe that needs fixing.
Step two: Take a picture of the area where the shoe needs repair to post it on your blog.

Step three: Go to the Dollar Store and spend 1.25$ on heavy black rubber gloves.
Step four: cut out the shape you will need to fix one or both shoes.

Step five: Apply contact cement (also from the dollar store) to the area of the shoe that needs fixing and apply the rubber cutout of the glove mentioned in steps four and five.

Step Six: After pressing hard on the contact cement and the rubber for about three minutes the patch should look like this.

Step seven: To the naked eye your shoe will look perfectly normal, only you will know that you paid 2.25$ for halfassed repairs as opposed to 20$ from your local shoe repair shop.
Step eight: Don't tell your friends because well, let's face it. DYI shoe repair might possibly be the most ghetto thing in the universe to do. On the flipside, you might wanna tell your friends because it might get you some well deserved street cred... I doubt it, but it's worth a shot.

Well kids, that concludes today's lesson. I hope you have all learned something valuable here today. I know I didn't.
