#lining

Hey there! I was wondering if you guys knew anything about fixing shoes- I have a nice pair of work boots that are perfectly fine, aside from the wear of the fabric behind my heel. It gives me blisters, but I’m sure that if I knew how to patch it properly these could last me several more years.
Ouch, blisters suck! Let's have a look.
Mending worn-out shoes
Do you mean the lining at the heel of a shoe?

This bit of fabric tends to develop holes for a lot of people: as we walk, our heel rubs against it which causes it to wear out. Luckily, it's pretty easy to patch up.
Instructables has a good tutorial on how to mend holes at the heel of a shoe.
Get a scrap of fabric that's slightly bigger than the hole. Make sure to pick a fabric that's comfortable to you, as your heel will be rubbing against it a lot. If the material behind the hole is very rough, you could also add a layer of soft material (e.g. fleece) between your patch and the back of your shoe to cushion this part of your boot, but this is optional.
Get some fabric glue and glue your patch across the hole.
The next step's up to you: you could leave it like that, or you could sew your patch to the surrounding lining to make it more durable. This might involve some awkward hand positions: a curved needle can make this process easier, if you happen to have one lying around.
If you're working with boots or other shoes that are higher than your average pair of sneakers, sewing your patch might prove difficult as you have to be able to reach into the shoe. In this scenario, just glueing on your patch might be a better option.

Conclusion:
Fixing the lining in the back of a shoe is pretty easy! It might require some awkward angles, but the process itself is simple.
If you have trouble fixing this issue on your own, check if you have a cobbler near you. They might be able to mend your lining for you, and their fee will probably be lower than a new pair of shoes.

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday.
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away.
