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.

Leather Toe Pieces

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.

Designer Sole Protectors

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.

Designer Resole

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.

Heel Tip Repair / Replacement

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.

Heel Re-Cover / Re-Wrapping

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.

Heelpiece Repair / Replacement

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.

Heel Repair / Reinforce

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.

Professional water protection and stain resistance for suede and designer shoes. We only apply high quality silicon-free waterproofing agents that do not change the colour or complexion of the leather.

Cleaning / Restoration

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.

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.

Dyeing / Colour Change

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.
