Shoe Repairs - Soles

We can of course replace worn out leather soles with new ones or in some cases the customer may wish to add a Topy rubber sole for added grip and slower wearing. Heels are normally rubber for maximum grip.

When a moulded rubber sole begins to break down and has holes as seen below, we can either add a Topy rubber half sole and heels or in more extreme cases replace the entire sole unit. The later option is more expensive but if the customer has left it too late to bring the shoes for repair we often have no alternative. The upside is this will generally give a longer lasting repair and in many cases offer more comfort to the customer.

We can convert leather soles to non-slip rubber or convert rubber soles to leather for dancing or bowling or adding protector plates to the heels or toes of shoes.
