Orthopedic Modifications

We’ll adjust your footwear to your needs, so you can walk comfortably and with confidence. Whether you need a heel lift or a sole modification, you can trust our experienced staff. Bring us your orthopedic requirements, and we will adjust your shoe accordingly.

Cowboy Boots

We replace heels, as well as half and full soles, rubber or leather. We also provide scuff repair and shine, and we can completely rebuild your old pair of boots.

Work Boots

In addition to complete rebuilds, we offer full sole replacements, new heels and toe caps.

Motorcycle Boots

We’ll strengthen your motorcycle boots with a pair of new full soles and new heels. You can also have them completely rebuilt at our store.

To make your dress shoes keep their original style, we’ll add TOPY protective soles, leather half soles or full soles. You can also depend on us to completely rebuild a worn out pair.

Ladies’ Dress Shoes

We’ll keep your dress shoes as comfortable as they are glamorous with TOPY protective soles, rubber heel lifts, leather half soles or rubber half soles. We also replace complete heels, recover worn-out heels, and put in new shanks.

High-End Designer Shoes

Protect your investment and make it safely last a lifetime with red/black/caramel/brown TOPY soles.

Sports Shoes

We repair and stretch golf shoes, dance shoes, tap shoes, curling shoes, bowling shoes and soccer boots to fit your foot perfectly!

Birkenstocks® and Sandals

Make your Birkenstocks® even more comfy with new soles, heels and linings. Bring your pair to the shop for strap repairs, and to get new foot beds or buckles.

Satin Shoe and Purse Dyeing

We’ll match your shoes to your dress! Bring your satin shoes or purse to our shop and we’ll dye it safely.

Luggage and Handbag Repair

Think twice before throwing damaged luggage away! Bring it in for wheel and tear repairs, and to have new clasps, handles, straps, zippers, or feet installed. Trust us with your favourite purse, and it will last you for many years. We repair straps, zippers, tears, clasps, magnets, snaps or whatever needs to be fixed.

Leather Goods Repairs

In addition to luggage, purses and belts, we fix leather jackets. We repair rips and tears, snaps, zippers, and we install patches.

Footwear Alterations and Fitting

Boot alterations include enlarging or reducing the calf of women’s knee-high boots, as well as stretching the calf or the foot, so the boots fit just right. We can also add zippers down the calf and do bunion stretching.

Every foot is different, so contact us with custom requests.

Sports Equipment Repairs

We fix sporting equipment, so bring in your hockey and baseball gloves and pads, as well as your skates for sharpening.
