"Hi Shane, Very happy with the service received and happy to recommend to others
Score is a 10." Thanks Robyn
These shoes are possibly from the 60's, I'm not sure but they were really worn out in the soles and the heels were so worn the heel block was gone!
Here you see the new leather soles which are glued and stitched on. The nails in the toes are not normal! But the welt (which is the bit that the stitches hook onto on the shoe) was so old and weak we decided a few nails through into the insole would help.
Here was a challenge and a half! Brand new black and white horse riding boots that needed more than 10cm of extra width in the calf area. You can see the elastic panels we added either side of the zip. But wait there is more! Once Zoe was able to wear them she found that they were too tall, so they went back under the knife and had 10cm of height removed as well.
"Just letting you know the boots arrived today & they are absolutely fantastic, they fit perfectly!
Thank you guys so much you have done an awesome job, they don't even look like they have had anything done to them.
Please pass my thank yous onto Shannon as well, you guys are awesome.
Wore them riding tonight and they were great :) Thanks" Zoe - Auckland

"I was very impressed with how you fixed up my boots. I can certainly get through at least another season without having to purchase a new pair, which I am very happy about, because I really like these boots. John gave them a good shine after your repairs and they are almost like new. Thanks so much for care and attention you give to your work and for your excellent follow up and customer service. We'll be back." Thanks Sharon

While this was a fairly well past it bag as the nylon was falling apart, we managed to put a big obvious patch on the outside that looked real good! We fix a lot of leather bag handles and zips, velcro catches and stitching.
