Chick started his legacy with fine shoe repair. He always wanted to provide a solution that combined strength and fine finishes. His goal was to refurbish shoes to look like new and wear better than anything you could buy.
Today we are factory endorsed by Finn Comfort, Naot, & Neil M. We conduct repairs using the same factory original soles provided by the manufacturer. We do a lot of high end designer “shoe” repairs .
We will repair just about anything that you ask us to.
One week to 10 day turnaround time is standard on all shoe repairs unless otherwise discussed at time of drop-off. Pre-payment on all repairs is due when the shoes are dropped-off. Shoe shines can sometimes be turned around more quickly depending on the current work load. In a pinch, certain jobs may be rushed with appropriate charges applied.
Half soles are provided to replace the worn area on the front of dress and casual shoes. This brings the wearing surface back to new and renews the look of the sole’s edge. The two popular options are leather and composition (rubber). Suede leather is available upon request for dancing and bowling shoes.
Half soles made of:
- Comp rubber
- Soft rubber
- Topy elysee
- Dance leather
- Anything Vibram makes
Full soles of everything you could want:
- Work boots
- Dress shoes
- Walking shoes
- Hiking boots
We have a large inventory of Vibram, Topy, Goodyear and other high abrasion soling. We have proprietary materials unique to our shop that you will not find in other shoe repair shops.
From high traction to high cushion to high end dressy , we strive to help find you just the right material for the job.
We can replace heels, from high abrasion through high shock absorbing. Heels can be replaced when new with rubber or a combination of leather and rubber upon special request. Smooth and suede leather are also available.
Tips are available in leather or protective hard-wearing pico.
Chick developed the pico tip from his own unique material in the 1950s. These are a must for all pointed toe shoes and shoes that are regularly worn. The pico tip replaces the original leather or rubber with a hard wearing plastic-like surface. The edge of the tip is blended to match up seamlessly to the original sole edge while the wearing surface is kept thick at the point of highest wear.
These tips maintain the original look of the shoe while extending the wear life tremendously. A wise investment for quality shoes.
Non-slip protective soles
We use the best available protective sole material for our non-slip protective half and full soles. Protective soles are most commonly applied when the shoe is new or lightly worn. This is a wise move for someone who wants to preserve their shoes and gain traction at the same time.
Note – Some shoes are not designed or not built out of materials that allow them to be repaired successfully. Come by at your convenience during our business hours and we will inspect them. We will give you a price quote based on that evaluation.
