Frequently Asked Questions

Which shoes can you fix?

We can fix almost all types of men’s and women’s shoes. Most repairs can be done by our in-store colleagues, but more complicated issues will be sent to our specialists at the Shoe Repair Excellence Centre. No job is too big or too small.

Is it worth getting my shoes fixed?

Nobody wants to say goodbye to their comfy old friends, and it’s often much cheaper to repair an existing pair than buy another brand-new pair.

Where should I send my shoes for repair?

After placing an order online, you’ll need to print out your order confirmation and send this with your shoes to: Online Shoe Repairs, Timpson House, Claverton Road, Wythenshawe, Manchester, M23 9TT.

Can shoes be resoled?

Yes, shoes can be resoled either with full soles or 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. 

Do I need to book an in-store appointment?

No, all Timpson stores offer walk-ins, so there’s no need to book an appointment in advance.

Do your repairs come with a guarantee?

Yes, we take great pride in what we do, so all shoe repairs come with the Timpson Guarantee. If you are not happy with your repair, please contact us so that we can offer you support.
