FAQ on Custom Work for Shoes:

What types of custom work for shoes are most common?
Common alterations include reinforcing the heel or toe, adding a new sole, adding a new upper, and attaching orthotics. You might try on a pair of shoes and tell us that they feel great except for one thing. We’ll fix that one thing.

What other shoe alterations do you do?
We also perform many other custom work jobs. Talk to us about your special requests. We are happy to assist you. There’s no reason for you to walk around in a pair of shoes that doesn’t seem quite right. If you’re keeping your shoes in your closet because there’s something wrong with them, don’t throw them away. Bring them to us for custom repairs.

How often do you assist people with custom shoe repairs?
Big shoe companies cannot create enough varieties of shoes to match the feet of all the people they aim to serve. Everyone’s feet are different, and sometimes it can be hard or impossible to find shoes that feel just right. Another problem is that all shoes wear out over time—especially the ones you love the most. When your favorite foot attire starts falling apart, there are things we can do to make the shoes look and feel new again. For all of these reasons, custom shoe repair is important for the modern shoe buyer, especially for people who are on their feet all day. We’re honored to fill this need for people in Maryland and the Washington, D.C., metro area.
