An insole (or sock) is the leather or fabric sole glued to the inside of the shoe along the bottom (the part you step on). We can custom cut you a fresh piece of leather to fit the shoe but note this will remove any branding. 

- £25-45

Stretching
Shoes can be stretched in any or all four directions and is meant to expedite the stretching that you foot would normally do through normal wear. While this can make the breaking in process a bit faster and more tolerable, we can not stretch a shoe or boot a full size.  Please note that in order to prevent damage to stitching, we cannot over stretch shoes. We stretch twice as standard but please note, we have no way of knowing how much of a difference this will make to your personal experience of the shoe. 

-  £30-50

Chamois Lining
Chamois lining, most often seen on the inside of the heel counter (or cavity) of loafers, lace ups, boots and trainers, is a soft sheep or goat lather with absorbent properties. However, over time, as you take your foot in and out of the shoe your heel rubs against and tears it which we can replace.
