Business Dress Shoes

We gladly repair almost any shoe! However, there are a few interesting facts to know about different brands of dress shoes regarding quality, and longevity. Allen Edmonds is one of those companies that is hard to compare.  Their shoes are all handcrafted, with construction methods that are hard to beat.  It is not unusual for a pair of these shoes to last over 10 years, and be resoled 5 or more times.  While some might see these as expensive, they are a good investment if you want to get a lot of wear out of a pair of dress shoes.  We recommend nothing less than a full sole and heel on these shoes when it's time for a repair, as a pair of these shoes will take just as good care of you, as you take care of it.  Cedar shoe trees and rotation in and out of your daily wear patters will GREATLY increase the life of these shoes, as the only problem we ever see with a pair of Allen Edmonds is from the accumulation of moisture from daily wear without an opportunity to dry out.  Trust your Goodyear Welted shoes to us, we can completely replace welts, storm welts, cork inlays, fiber braces, we use only Extra Prime leather full soles,  we rebuild the heel bases  only the finest available rubber or combination rubber leather heel (dovetail). Soles are stitched with our Landis Goodyear welt stitcher which skives the sole while stitching it to the welt so that the linen thread is not exposed. Finally the re-crafted shoe is cleaned and hand finished to bring out that Like New finish.    

Our passion is repairing Allen Edmonds and other fine English, Italian and American shoes.
