Executive and Traditional Shoe Repair Service
For our more discerning customers, we offer a special Executive shoe repair service. High quality gents shoes such as those manufactured often by hand by companies such as Barkers, Church and Loake, are often more costly than the average pair of shoes on the high street, but crafted with traditional methods and quality materials can last for decades! These shoes need to be repaired to a high standard to preserve the high quality construction and to ensure years of service to the wearer.
At Keyishoes, we employ traditional techniques and the highest quality leather products to achieve the best results. We have carefully selected J Rendenbach as our preferred provider of materials for our executive repairs. Using an Oak-Bark ground-tanning process their leather products result in a waterproof, abrasive resistant material with antiperspirant qualities and much more!
The repair process involves removing the old heel block, carefully removing the old stitching from the soles and discarding the old comfort padding. The shoes are then prepared for repair, shanks & heel blocks, inspected and replaced if necessary. New cork comfort padding is added and the shoes are fitted with JR leather thru-soles stitched to the Goodyear Welt (where fitted) and leather heel with a quarter rubber tip. The shoes are then finished to a high standard. In addition, laces are replaced and insole linings are inspected for wear and replaced if damaged.
Finally, your shoes are returned in a complimentary shoe bag.
Have you just purchased a new pair of shoes and wish to preserve the soles or add extra grip? Then why not ask us to fit light-weight but hard wearing Stick on Soles? These quality soles add life to your shoes and provide the extra grip often lacking with new shoes. In addition, during the winter months they can provide extra insulation from the damp and cold. If replaced regularly before wearing onto the original soles they can add years of life to your shoes!
