Hi Shane Barr here,
Do you have boots that need repairs before winter?
Bring them in for a free appraisal
Or use our 5 point checklist ...
Heels - back right corner of the right heel. It's time for repair if it’s as thin as a cheese slice.
Soles - Put your hand into your right boot and poke about where the ball of your foot sits. Does it feel soft and flimsy? Compare how it feels to other areas of the sole. Splits cracks or holes are a sure sign it’s time for repair.
Insoles - While you have your hand in your boot. Is the insole smooth and comfy? Or if it's unstuck and scrunched up they need attention.
Stitching - look for any loose or fuzzy stitching. Better to do it now. Once it’s loose the leather stretches out of shape ... and winter sneaks in.
Zips - Do they make a nice zip zip sound as you zip them up and down? Or are they catchy and stop start? Try a bit of neutral shoe cream or hand cream on the zip to see if it works better.
What does it cost? - As a guide, if you need one or 2 items from the list on a pair it will be worth it. Once you need 3 or more on a pair you may be better replacing them. Bring them in for a proper quote.
How long does it take? 2 days is normal. Drop them off Monday, pick them up Wednesday 11am. Need them sooner, we have 4 "same day" spaces available each day. Let us know when suits you.
