Shoe repair adds value to your footwear investment.

We can save you money, make your shoes more comfortable and keep you looking good. We know how much money you spend on quality footwear, bags, and leather goods, yet so often as we go about our busy lives, so many of us neglect to take care of them - that is until it is almost too late!

Unless you are a person who needs to have their footwear altered to cater for a particular disability, you may not realise that looking after your footwear is also important to your health. Overworn, uneven heels can cause ankle injuries, loose soles can cause sudden trips, and sweaty shoes can create problems with fungal diseases.

Due to cost-cutting by footwear manufacturers, a considerable number of shoes these days are produced with plastic soles and heels. Plastic has no grip, does not wear very well, and can be extremely dangerous when the situation causes someone to have a bad fall and break a bone.

If you have a pair of shoes that are perfectly broken in, a repair can keep them looking new while maintaining that broken-in feel. Having non-slip protection half soles put on your favourite or even your new shoes, will give you peace of mind on those slippery surfaces.

Here are some of the many services that we offer.

  • Protective non-slip soles that can be applied to prolong the life of leather or plastic soles.
