Replacing heels on high heels?

So how the heck do you do this when they are completely worn out to the nail. My sister has about six shoes that need the replacement tips and they are shot. Any tips?

Any good shoe repair shop for the heel tips. But when my soles go, I generally retire the shoes.

She didn't want to take them to the shoe shop because she said it would cost more than the shoes themselves (she got them on sale). She gave repair kits to two friends and they didn't have a problem with replacing them, but I guess they didn't let them wear down that much either.

some brands replace as a courtesy, but new tips at the shop are like $8.  DIY are ok, but they often fall out or you can split the heel

$8 a pair or each? If it is a pair she should just get them done there.

a pair.  now, that's my shop... she should call ahead, but they use epoxy and look like new... not like DIY

No clue how to diy. I would still take them to a repair shop if I liked the shoes enough.
