Shoe Repair & Care

Shoe Repair & Care

Whether you’re looking to personally care for your shoes or need some expert attention, Mister Minit has been fixing shoes since we opened our first Heel Bar 1957. To this day, we still love your shoes and cannot wait to fix your favourites!

Use our checklists below to see if your shoes can be maintained in a few simple steps or would benefit from professional treatment. And if you’re not sure you’re always welcome in-store for our specialist advice.

Premium Scratch and Repair Service

Bring your tired and scruffy shoes into your nearest Mister Minit for an overnight Premium Scratch and Polish Repair Service.

Using the finest European leather restorer products from Saphir you’ll get a new life out of your favourite shoes.

 

Don’t replace, repair!

Bring your shoes into your nearest Mister Minit store for expert attention. Most shoe repairs can be done while you wait (or while you shop) or consider bringing them in for the full treatment with Mister Minit’s overnight Premium Scratch and Polish Repair Service.

Patching

Mister Minit can fix holes, rips, tears in the upper shoe and heel lining.

Stitching

Fix broken or undone stitching, a hole in your shoe or frayed treads.

Stretching

Professional Stretching in store is an overnight service that can help with shoes that are too tight and rub, causing blisters.

Perfect for shoes that need to be stretched across the front due to bunions, the Professional Stretching Service can increase the size of your toe up to half a size in the width and up to a ¼ size in length.

For this service shoes must be enclosed and be leather or suede shoes. We cannot  stretch Patent leather as it will wrinkle, or stretch Vinyl as it will tear.

Don’t throw tight shoes away; bring them into a Mister Minit today!

Tip: it is best to buy shoes slightly bigger and you can add a heel grip and innersole to pad out shoes.

Securing Heel Blocks

Shoes that have a wobbly, snapped or lost heel should be repaired before any more damage to the shoe can occur, especially to the shank.

The shank retains the shape of the shoes which prevents the shoe from folding in half so its important to fix the heel before the shank is damaged.

Heel Block Recovering

Mister Minit can fix scratches, tears or chunks missing from the heel leather as well as improve the discolouration of the heel block itself.

Heel Build-ups

Shoes that have a heel worn down on one side can impact on your posture and balance. At Mister Minit we can replace the heel block to keep your shoes performing as they should.

Gluing

Often when shoes are left in the cupboard for a season the glue can loosen making the upper lift away from the sole. Bring your shoes in to have the upper and sole re-glued while you wait.

Elastic Gusset Replacement

Shoes with an elastic gusset at the ankle can stretch, break or become loose. By replacing the elastic you can keep your boots snug around the ankle and looking smart.

Mister Minit can also replace the elastic on buckles on your shoes and bags.

Buckle Replacement

Whether your buckle has fallen off, become loose or needs replacing, Mister Minit can help you fix your shoes and bags.

Strap Repairs

The straps on your shoes and bags can become frayed, discoloured, broken or torn.

Bring them into your nearest Mister Minit store to be fixed while you wait.

Eyelets

Broken eyelets can damage laces and tear leather. At Mister Minit we can replace the eyelets and even makes the holes for laces bigger if you have special laces you want to fit.

Re-colouring

Whether you want to freshen your shoes by re-colouring worn and scuffed toes, scratches and faded leather or would like to update them to go with a new outfit for a special occasion Mister Minit can help.

Bring your shoes in for advice on what products to use re-colour your shoes at home or simply leave them with a trained specialist and we will update your shoes for you!

Water and Stain Protection

Use our Mister Minit Water and Stain Protector to keep your shoes in top condition or bring them in-store for a professional treatment.

The protection prevents discolouration, water marks, liquid spills and mould or mildew before storing away for winter.

Zipper Repair

Bring your shoes to Mister Minit when you cannot zip up  your boots, shoes or bags.

We can fix a worn runner or when the teeth of zipper no longer meet or will not zip up.
