Stretching the calf of dress boots is tricky enough. So getting more room in these well built Cavallo horse riding boots was a real challenge.
The amount of pressure needed to stretch them would of ruined the zips, so we stitched webbing in with the white stitching to take the weight and left the zip slider down out of harms way.
The contrasting thread colour makes it safer when unpicking. It's easy to see which ones to leave behind.
My riding boots arrived back on Friday morning. They are so much better.
Thank you for your excellent service.
I was very impressed that you contacted me to let me know the boots had arrived
and then kept me informed of progress. The service you gave exceeded my expectations so very happy."

Looks like a simple repair but there are a few issues underneath with the front edge of the hollow heel wedge being broken into lots of little pieces. These needed gluing and strengthening while we had the soles off. Replaced the soles and heel tips with nice fresh topy rubber.

"Thank you so much for your prompt and marvellous service, with fixing my boots yesterday. They are my necessities in Winter and due to your efficiency I'll be able to wear them over the weekend when we go to Auckland. I'm very grateful."
"I recently had some red boots repaired at your Mt Maunganui shop and want to say a huge thank you to Shannon for the "amazing transformation" and prompt, cheerful service which included packaging and posting to Gisborne.
We have no shoe repair shops here so I will be recommending you to others who need shoes repaired."

"Hi from Gail with the 30+ - year-old brown suede boots re-soled and re-coloured beautifully by you, thank you very much! Yes, your high standard of cheerful communication and work both deserve referrals to our
friends and family. Will do, and thanks very much once again for extremely fine work.
Kind regards from Gail in the North Waikato.
For your workmanship and service ... I will always happily travel over to you."
"Always happy with the work, I did take a pair back but that was fixed very quickly and without hassle.
The service by the guys is always awesome & friendly. Thank you"
"Thank You Shane
I collected the bellows yesterday and they really work well. You did a great job and we are delighted. Roger was really thrilled with the job and despite being so small they actually work really well now. Having been in the family for 4 generations it was so exciting to have them fixed and looking great and actually working properly – A job really well done
Thank you so much" Jan
Great job was done by Rob in our Mt Store.
"I've tried them on and they look and feel great. Much stronger than before. Thanks for your great work. I will be happy to refer others to your service.
Oh and a special mention about the customer service at your Mount store: it was excellent and a contributing factor to having my shoes re-heeled by you guys."
