We specialize in all types of shoe and boot repairs – both mens and ladies. We can carry out almost any job you can think of from the smallest piece of stitching right up to a full long sole and re-welt. Any job – any time!
Most repairs are carried out on-site in our national network of shops. Some more complicated and specialist repairs are sent to our central workshop where they are expertly repaired by specialist craftsmen.
You can also keep your shoes in tip-top condition by looking after the uppers as well. You can either order your shoe care onlineHEREor by visiting your nearest store.

In our workshops our experts can build a shoe from the ground up, from hand stitching on a new welt, replacing inboards then attaching the through soles, stitching them to the upper and finally adding the new heel tops before polishing and sending the back to the store and a happy customer.
Your favorite bag – no problem a new zip can be inserted and any stitching that has come away easily repaired. Some of the more obscure jobs our workshop has dealt with are: clowns shoes, a sail, circus props, bowling shoes, Premier League players football boots.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ON SHOE REPAIR

Pop into your local peckham branch today.
CAN SHOES BE RESOLED?
Yes, shoes can be resoled either with full soles of half soles and can be replaced several times providing the upper is in good condition. Half soles are ideal for heels, while full soles are recommended for flat shoes. Many customers choose to replace their soles with Vibram soles which provide superb traction and long life wear. You will know when shoes need resoling when soles start to soften and signs of a hole appear, or you can feel the ground.
IS IT WORTH GETTING SHOES REPAIRED?
Its often much cheaper to repair a pair of shoes than replacing with a brand new pair, especially if its a much loved designer brand or an irreplaceable pair of shoes. Bring your beloved footwear into Queens Dry Cleaner and see what we can do for you. We can repair most shoes including the soles as well as the upper, too.
