If too much use has lead to your toe piece being scuffed and worn, you can have it replaced to make it look as good as new. This is also a cost effective alternative to a whole new sole.

The toe piece is the front part of the shoe which often wears down quickly, particularly on pointy shoes. Bring your shoes into Mister Minit to add a toe piece and prolong the life of the shoe where it wears the most.

Heel Block

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.
