Team Spirit in July 2012

We decided to go out on a team building exercise as so many of us like to enjoy the countryside on our bikes. We like to do it rough though over ‘rocks and roots’ and not on the road. Fun was had by everyone enjoying the long awaited summer weather. What a way to work up a sweat!

Welcome to our first blog.

We offer a first class service for shoe repairs by post.

For many people access to a traditional shoe repairer is becoming more and more difficult as they have disappeared off the high street.  As we become a nation more intent on looking after our possessions and trying to maintain a stronger  re-use ethic,  it makes sense to buy shoes which will last longer, be more comfortable and healthy for your feet.  With this of course comes the increase cost of your purchase.  When you are investing in footwear  it makes more sense to look after your  shoes.

Allow us to do this for you.  Send them to us to have them repaired, before preferably the holes appear in the bottom of the shoe.  Nonetheless we can still repair the majority of worn shoes.  We repair leather soles, rubber soles, unit soles to name but a few.  At this time we are also seeing a general increase in the amount of crepe repairs we are doing.  They must be having a revival.

If you are unsure your boots or shoes can be repaired, you can photograph them and email us for advice.  We are always willing to help out and assist wherever we can.

We can supply you with tips to look after the uppers of you shoes and advise what creams and waxes you should feed your leather with.  We can supply you with shoe trees to remove moisture from the leather and enhance the lifetime of your shoes.  We can provide new laces to keep spare for that made dash in the morning and the inevitable happens and once snaps removing the sense of panic.

Give us a call, drop us a email or just send your footwear to us and give us a go and let us show you how we work our magic on them.
