Description of our shoe repair services offered:

With every step you take, we are right there with you...

Women's Shoes

Ladies’ Heel may be made of rubber, leather, or other material, serving as the thin layer that touches the ground and goes under the heel of the foot.

Half Soles are made of leather or rubber, most often used as replacements for the original bottom of a ladies shoe. The bottom portion goes from the shank of the shoe to the toes, sparing the back portion of the sole that extends to the heel.

Full Soles & Heels involve the replacement of the entire bottom (including the heels) with a leather material or rubber.

Sole Guards/Protective Soles are thin, high quality rubber soles that go on top of an existing sole. Protective soles provide much better traction and greater longevity for the bottom of the shoe.

Re-covering of Heels involves removing all old material and replacing with a new cover made of leather, patent leather, fabric or other material. This is usually due to ladies’ heels always being damaged.

Toe Pieces is an alternative to replacing the entire sole.  A small portion of the front of the sole is replaced with the same material as the original sole.

Metal Toe Dot is a small metal "dot" placed on the end of the toe, extending the life of the sole there. The dot is not visible from the top of the shoe.

Men's

Rubber Heels come in various sizes and shapes, known to be longer lasting and less expensive than combination or leather heels. We always recommend rubber.

Leather Heel is a top-lift that is all leather. Also, it has low traction and wear qualities.

Combination Heel is a top-lift that is made of leather in combination with a rubber back. The rubber on the back of the heel provides better traction and wear.

Heel Pads involve the replacement of the leather pad that covers 1/3 - 3/4 of the insole.

Reline Backs involve covering the inside of the heal counter with new leather.

Work Boot Heels are the rubber or leather portions of the bottom of the heels of boots.

Half Soles (Leather) extend from the shank of the shoe through the toe and involves the replacement of the soles in that area.

Half Sole & Heel involves replacing half of the sole and the heel at the same time.

Casual Soles

Full Soles & Heels is the replacement of the entire bottom of a shoe or boot.

Full Soles (Birkenstock) can be replaced with the same material as the Original Equipment Manufacturer.

Full Soles: Casual- The replacement of the entire bottom of a sports shoe similar deck shoe with a soft flexible material usually of some rubber or composition variety.

Full Soles (Sports) can be replaced in sports shoes using materials of a similar deck shoe, usually a soft flexible material made of some rubber or a variety of components.

Full Soles: Workboot- The replacement of the entire bottom of a sports shoe similar to a Rockport or deck shoe with a soft flexible material usually of some rubber or composition variety.

Full Soles (Workboots) meaning the entire bottom of a sports shoe, can be replaced to look similar to a Rockport or deck shoe, using a soft flexible material usually made of rubber or a variety of components.

Sole Guard or Protective Sole is a rubber layer placed on top of an existing men's sole. This provides better traction and longer wear.

Western Boots

Western Boots Heel involves the replacement of the rubber or leather portion at the bottom of a western boot.

Half Soles (Leather or Rubber) extend from the shank of the shoe to the toes and involve the replacement of the soles in that area.

Dyeing/Cleaning

Fabric Shoe Dyeing is done on fabric shoes whose color you wish to change, preferably from lighter to darker. The dye is permanent and will not wash out or bleed. It can often be matched to a ladies’ dress, handbag or another item.

Leather Dyeing is done by stripping the old color off a pair of leather shoes and then applying a dye that will change the shoes or boots to a new color.

Leather Color Refinish or Restore may be done on shoes, boots and bags. This process can achieve color approximation or even restoration of an article to its original color.

Shampoo/Deodorize shoes that are of a suede, nu-buck or similar material can be shampooed to remove dirt and stains and restore some of the original nap. We use Klenz, a complete sanitizing deodorizing service.

Luggage Repair/Miscellaneous Works

Belt Shortening may be done for belts that are too long.  Repairmen can shorten these, usually from the buckle side so that the belt looks exactly the same.

Eyelets are the metal lined holes that shoe laces are put through.  These also need replacement, especially in handbags or luggage.

Handles may be replaced or repaired as needed.

Minor Stitching is easily done using our heavy duty sewing machines that can put together almost any rip or tear.

Snaps are a common item on many handbags, belts and other items, often in need replacement.

New Tassels are commonly seen on men and women's loafers and golf shoes. Tassels have a terrible habit of falling off and can be replaced by our repairmen.

Plastic or Metal Plates are installed on the heel or toes to extend the life of your shoe. A bit of warning though; the metal can become sharp and could cut floors.

Shoe Shine is done on your shoes or boots to provide a better appearance and give the leather surface a longer life.

Stretching Shoes and Boots can be done to achieve an increase by as much as a full size in width. Stretching is most effective on leather shoes and boots, but stretching other materials such as imitation leather, plastic or cloth can provide some relief. Also, protective areas of shoes can be eased, especially for foot problems such as bunions.

Sew on Ribbons & Elastic is done by marking and measuring elastic and sewing on with ribbon.

Dance Shoes

Install Dance Taps: This may be done on new dance shoes. Always check the packaging to see if you have the correct size. This can save you a trip back to the store.

Swap Dance Taps: You can take taps off of last year’s shoes and have them installed on new shoes. You won’t need to buy new taps every year.

Tap Dance Stops: You can have rubber installed and trimmed behind the toe taps to add traction.

Ballet Dance Stops: You can have rubber installed and trimmed at the bottom and over the toes to add traction and extend the life of toes.
