suggestions on how to fix shoes Answered

I hava couple of pairs of high heels and the heel has broken off they look like this http://www.stiletto-heel-tips.co.uk/DIY_heel_tip_replacement.htm

what has happened is that the plastic has broken leaving the metal prong still embedded in the heel. So rather than take them to the cobblers for mending I know that the bright brains here will have an idea. I was thinking of pulling out the metal prong and then cutting some new plastic to replace the heel material. Is this worth my while do you think? the plastic would have to be something very durable and I would have to have some way of fixing the metal prong to the plastic, without it shearing off as has already happened.

too hard??

or have you a good idea
