We offer a variety of luxury shoe services including repairs, cleaning, restoration and colour changes. Some of our more popular designer shoe repair services are outlined below including a full service and price list.
Designers shoes typically have thin leather soles that wear at the toes. We cut new toe pieces from leather to rebuild and recontour the leather before adding half rubber soles for long-term sole protection.See Examples Send Photos
Protective soles or are a popular sole modification for designer shoes where colour-matched rubber soles are affixed to the front-half of leather soles. The rubber provides slip resistance, water tightness and preserves the leather.See Examples Send Photos
We resole designer shoes with thin profile Italian leather, which is custom crafted and dyed to the colour of the original soles. The new soles are smoothed, waxed and professionally finished with an edge dressing.See Examples Send Photos
We replace worn rubber heel tips with new custom fitted designer heel tips. The new tips are attached, smoothed and the heelpieces are finished with a renovator to tidy up any scuffs, marks or imperfections on the heelpieces.See Examples Send Photos
We replace worn heel coverings recrafted on designer shoes with matching leather, which is used to 're-wrap' the heels. The new leather coverings can then be redyed or recoloured to match the original luxury heel coverings.See Examples Send Photos
We replace cracked, broken or damaged heelpieces with a matching style of heelpiece, which is re-covered with leather. The leather is then recoloured with custom matched dye to replace the original luxury heelpieces.See Examples Send Photos
We reattach heels that show signs of instability or wobbliness. The unstable heel is temporarily removed. The base of the shoe is sanded and an adhesive or additional reinforcement is applied. The heel is realigned for balance and attached back to the upper.See Examples Send Photos
We replace or repair worn or damaged straps, which can either be reinforced and strengthened with a supporting layer of leather or completely replaced. If a replacement strap is required, a new strap can be recrafted from a matching section of leather and redyed to replace the original.See Examples Send Photos

We re-cover designer shoes with material such as satin to match clothing or accessories. This service is ideally for special occasions such as weddings. The amount of material required for this service is approximately half a metre.See Examples Send Photos
We stretch shoes with mechanised equipment up to half a size larger. We can also alter shoes or boots by hand to achieve a custom size. This may involve "letting out" the shoe from the upper to relieve tight designer shoes.See Examples Send Photos
We shorten or lengthen designer shoe straps to achieve alter the length. A measurement is taken to determine the ideal length of the strap. Excess leather can either be taken away or the strap can be lengthened with matching leather.See Examples Send Photos
We restitch designer shoes to repair any wear and tear. Our wide selection of threads allows for custom matching of thickness and colour for a seamless repair.See Examples Send Photos

We offer a specialised designer shoe cleaning and restoration service. Our deep cleaning procedure involves removing any marks or stains on the leather with extractive techniques before restoring the surface with cleaning and conditioning agents.See Examples Send Photos
We refinish, redye or recolour designer shoes that are discoloured, scratched or stained. The dye is custom-matched and the finish is reapplied by hand before the leather is nourished and waterproofed to prevent colour migration.See Examples Send Photos
We redye desinger shoes to a completely new colour. The original finish of the shoe is stripped before the new dye is applied. Our dyes are applied by hand as opposed to sprays for a natural and refined finish to the leather.See Examples Send Photos

All efforts will be made to ensure that repair and restoration jobs are completed to a high standard.

In such cases materials and hardware will be substituted with suitable replacements of similar quality and aesthetics.
