I ordered a repair for my Louboutins through SoleHeeled recently. And was pleasantly surprised by how great they looked, even though the heels were replaced entirely. Excellent workmanship, and top notch service as well.

Shoe Repair Services
We perform all sorts of shoe repair and restoration services. If the service you're looking for isn't listed below, you'll be able to request a free 'repair diagnosis' during the order process.
We strip damaged soles before cutting new ones and carefully glueing or stitching them into place on the base of your shoes. We use only top-quality European leather and anti-slip rubber soles to ensure comfort and longevity.
Full flat soles
Loafers, boat shoes and sneakers typically have one full sole, rather than a sole that's separate from or shorter than the heel. We replace the full sole, stitching or gluing a new one to the base of the shoe.
The inner lining fabric often tears or shows significant wear over time. We patch these tears using custom-cut leather patches or replace the lining entirely where necessary.
We repair damaged shoe straps or replace them entirely with new straps, including any velcro on their underside.
Zipper damage doesn't spell the end of a great pair of shoes or boots. We can repair your original zippers or replace them with top-quality new ones if need be.
These are metallic rings around holes in leather/fabric, typically decorative or used to thread shoe laces. We replace them where damaged and can even add new ones where necessary.
Having to 'break in' shoes is often the most annoying part of wearing a new pair. We use specialised machinery to carefully stretch shoes based on your preferences.
Waterproofing is a necessity for new shoes, particularly suede shoes, to keep them looking sharp in, and in spite of, all types of weather.
Polish / shine
We remove light dirt and apply conditioners to carefully polish your shoes and restore colour to the edges of your soles and heels. Your shoes will look fresh as ever.
Heels can be so worn that heel blocks themselves are damaged, affecting your balance and posture while walking. We build up damaged heels or replace them entirely. We can also adjust the height of heels to better suit body heights and preferences.
Heel tips make all the difference when it comes to comfortably enjoying your favourite heels. We stock various types of heel tips, and always recommend replacing plastic tips with anti-slip rubber ones to ensure comfort and longevity.
The tips of your soles at the front of your shoes are easily worn over time. We custom cut leather or rubber toe pieces to restore the shape and appearance of your shoe's soles.
A comfortable insole makes all the difference when it comes to enjoying a shoe. We replace stock insoles with orthopaedic ones or custom-cut ones that match your shoe's shape.
Even on the most rigour-proof shoes, elastic gussets are easily worn. We can replace them with top-quality gussets to get your shoes feeling snug but flexible again.
We repair damaged buckles, and can replace them with entirely new buckles if the existing ones are irreparable.
We repair damaged stitching on shoes with matching string, removing existing string and restitching lines entirely if need be.
Dye / recolouring
We use spirit dyes that soak into the shoe's leather, permanently changing its colour. This matches the dyeing process typically used in the manufacture of high-end shoes and other leather goods.
Surface clean / restoration
Leather shoe surfaces are easily scuffed, cracked or otherwise damaged. We polish out scuffs, clean shoes to remove dirt and stains, and recondition leather. And we even repair deeper surface damage with invisible stitching and patching.

QUALITY WORKMANSHIP SINCE 1955
A 3rd generation family business keeping alive an age-old craft
Brilliant job on my boots. The only place that was keen to install zippers on my pull-on ankle boots so I could finally wear them. Great to deal with too. Highly recommend this business to anyone and everyone.
Absolutely brilliant job. I thought I had worn my R.M. Williams boots beyond repair but they were fixed by these guys as good as new. Could not be happier.
Great service tailored to exactly the type of repair you need... The team was very communicative regarding delivery, turnaround time was a few days and the end result was fantastic!
These guys were fantastic from beginning till end. My RM Williams boots came back today and I am so impressed by the quality of workmanship and the products they use. The shipping option is great for busy people like me.
I could not find anyone here in Melbourne that could repair my UGG Boots. I found SoleHeeled and shipped my boots north to Sydney. Today I received my boots all stitched and repaired. Very happy and highly recommend this company.
Sent my Louboutin heels for repair as the sole had started to wear. The communication from SoleHeeled throughout the entire process was great and my shoes look fantastic!
What a fantastic service. Did such a neat job replacing the zipper in my favourite boot which was returned to me, to my doorstep within a week. Definitely would recommend SoleHeeled.
Outstanding repair of my 15+ year old RM Williams boots. Free courier service and lots of communication. Could not be happier with the result. A reasonable price. They look like new boots. Very highly recommended!
I thought my beautiful, much loved boots would have to be consigned to the bin. I am overjoyed with the repair — the new moulded soles are perfect. Excellent workmanship. Delivery was swift — the whole process seamless.
