The tips of stilettos heels are the end pieces of the heel and are normally composed of rubber and have a diameter of less than 1cm. The narrow tips cause an enormous amount of pressure to be exerted on the heel that leads the rubber to wear out over time. We replace heel tips while you wait with durable and soft Italian-made rubber that provides you with long-lasting use and comfort.
Shoe re-covering is a specialised service ideally for your special occasions, such as weddings, engagement parties and formal occasions. We re-cover all models and styles of shoes to match your other clothing. We can recover your shoes with any material of your choosing – especially when you need them to match a wedding dress or your favourite handbag. All we need is a strip of fabric of your choosing half a metre wide and at least 50cm long, and we will do the rest.
Dyeing And Colour Matching
Do you want to change the colour of your shoes, boots or handbag? We can dye them any colour of your choice. All we need is a sample of the colour that you want. Are your shoes looking scuffed and worn? We can touch-up and restore the original colour and feel of your shoes. NOTE: Dying works best when we dye a light article to a darker colour) in particular with suede. Dyeing jobs will require a minimum of 1 week unless it is an emergency – and we can make special arrangements for you.
