You can also keep your shoes in tip-top condition by looking after the uppers as well. You can either order your shoe care online HERE or by visiting your nearest store.

Our Shoe Repair Excellence Centre

Our workshop colleagues have over 100 years of experience, including winners of national shoe repair competitions.  So we have some of the best working for us looking after our customers.

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.

Questions and Answers on Shoe Repair

What kind of shoes do you repair?

We can fix almost all kinds of womens and mens shoes and boots! No job is too big or too small. We offer full or partial re-sole, repair shoe stitching, re-heeling your favourite boots, shoe stretching and much more, including zip repair, shoe dyeing, strap repair, and waterproofing. Pop into your local Timpson 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.

Where is the nearest shoe repair shop?

With Timpson stores across the UK on your high street and local supermarkets, you’ll find a shoe repair shop near you. Use our store finder to locate your nearest store to get your shoes repaired or altered, with many of our shoe repair services available on a same day service too.

Is it worth getting shoes repaired?

It’s often much cheaper to repair a pair of shoes than replacing with a brand new pair, especially if it’s a much loved designer brand or an irreplaceable pair of shoes. Bring your beloved footwear into Timpson and see what we can do for you. We can repair most shoes including the soles as well as the upper, too.
