Shoe Repairs & Modifications


As we help such a wide variety of customers, we have always had a demand for unique shoe modifications and repairs, so we have developed a service that meets this demand. We have a list below of the most popular repair and modification options; however don’t hesitate to enquire on anything you can’t see below as most needs can be fulfilled.


We work with a highly experienced, local cobbler who offers a wide range of shoe repairs such as: New outsoles, new heels, collar-linings, re-stitching, toe-patches, shoe stretching and more. We also work with an NHS approved shoe modification factory to offer pretty much any podiatrist or orthotist prescribed modification such as: full length compensation raises, heel raises, Varus and Valgus angled raises, rocker soles and much more.


Shoe Repair Pricelist:



ITEM DESCRIPTION PRICE
Carbon Re-sole Our cobbler will remove the entire sole of your old shoes and then attach a fresh set of outsoles and carefully grind them down to fit. Perfect if you wear your outsoles down faster than the cushioning of the shoe. £25.00
Carbon Re-heel Similar to the re-sole, except only the heel area is re-soled. Ideal if you strike the ground at a very sharp angle and wear the heel down well within the useful life of the shoe. £11.50
Heel tab cut-down Some people find that the heel tab (the soft padded area that sits next to the Achilles tendon at the rear of the shoe) can irritate. This adjustment can help as the heel tab is cut down and finished professionally. £14.00
Heel counter re-lining Many runners find that they wear through the internal lining around the heel of the shoe more quickly than others; this is generally due to your biomechanics. A re-lining can give a new lease of life to your shoes. £13.00
Shoe Patches Many runners wear through the delicate mesh at the toe of their shoes or other sensitive areas, a piece of thin leather is applied to patch the damaged area. £6.00
Stitching Running shoes are designed to be lightweight and flexible, so their stitching isn’t as strong as in some styles of shoe. Our cobbler can re-stitch any seams or stitching that may have frayed or come apart. POA
Shoe Stretching Although some shoes come in a selection of widths, the majority of styles don’t. Shoe stretching can be a invaluable tool when you have wider feet and have found a shoe that is perfect for your biomechanics, but is a little tight. The shoes are placed on a stretching machine and gently stretched overnight; this can sometimes yield an extra width fitting. This service is most effective on leather-based shoes. £5.00

ITEM DESCRIPTION PRICE (all per shoe)
Full Length midsole build-up (up to 25mm) The midsole is expertly cut through its length and a piece of EVA of the required thickness is inserted with high-strength shoe adhesive. The EVA is colour matched as closely as possible and the midsole is then professionally ground-down for a good finish. Used for limb-length discrepancies. £30.00
Midsole heel build-up (up to 25mm) The midsole is expertly cut through its heel and a piece of EVA of the required thickness is inserted with high-strength shoe adhesive. The EVA is colour matched as closely as possible and the midsole is then professionally ground-down for a good finish. Used for limb-length discrepancies. £25.00
Rocker Sole The outsole is removed and a piece of curved EVA is inserted to produce a “rocker”. The EVA is colour matched as closely as possible and the midsole is then professionally ground-down for a good finish. This helps to promote sagittal plane movement, when sagittal restrictions are present. £20.00
Varus or Valgus Wedge An angled section of EVA is inserted with high-strength shoe adhesive. The EVA is colour matched as closely as possible and the midsole is then professionally ground-down for a good finish. Used to create either a Varus or Valgus wedge to compensate for either a Varus or Valgus deformity. £20.00
