same thing just happened to me, took them to a hockey skate repair place and they said that they could easily fix it so they're in the shop now. I'm pretty sure you can take it to any shoe repair shop too.
so anyways, I was standing there waiting to use the pay phone, and this guy turns around and tips his hat like this..... and who do you think that guy was? Emilio Estevez.. the MIGHTY DUCK man I swear to god, I was like EMILIOOOOO!!
