The boots

These Wittner ankle boots are a popular style, stylish and yet comfortable enough for daily wear. However, the heel on one of these boots had been thoroughly chewed through by a dog. When this customer reached out to us for a free diagnosis / quote, we reviewed the photos she submitted and offered to repair both heels, re-covering each heel block with new leather and rubber bases.

Leather heel re-covering and rubber re-heel

It was clear that the existing rubber covering the heel blocks could not be restored or replaced with matching rubber material, and so we needed to re-cover both heels with new leather so that they matched each other. We stripped the heel blocks of the old rubber covers and custom cut patches of high-quality leather that we used to re-cover (or re-wrap) the heel blocks. We also applied new rubber heels to the base of each heel block.
