Have you ever ruined a favourite pair of shoes? Perhaps you caught a heel on a paving slab or got mud on your suede pumps. You’ll be thrilled to know that there’s a place in London which works magic on wrecked footwear. What do you call somewhere which offers luxury shoe repair, and where you take your boots, shoes, sandals or trainers to be pampered and revamped? Shoe Spa!
There’s no whale music, heated loungers or steam rooms, but you will receive top class customer service. The friendly staff take time to understand what you want, and you know your shoes will be well cared for.
I thought I would try out the service on some ruined boots of my own. I’d made the mistake of applying “neutral” coloured cream polish to my dark brown leather riding-style boots. The polish had left an unattractive light-coloured residue in all of the creases.
I wanted a high polish on the toe and heel, and to see whether I could have a different colour on the leg. After sending a few images to Shoe Spa, they miraculously transformed my boots.
I love the ombre effect they have achieved on the leather. It’s so clever. There are no traces of the neutral polish residue, and the overall look is rich and luxurious.
Here I am opening the exciting package:
In addition to their luxury shoe repair services, Shoe Spa can also completely re-colour or customise your shoes in any way you choose. I thought I’d try out the dyeing service myself, so I asked Shoe Spa to dye this pair of taupe shoes.
I was keen for these shoes to match my deep purple bridesmaid’s dress for a friend’s wedding. Look what a great job Shoe Spa have done! The leather and satin areas of the shoes have been dyed perfectly.
You can even have your sneakers customised by an artist. I love this example in Shoe Spa‘s window.
Now have a look in your cupboards for your favourite pairs which need a new lease of life. Found some? Why don’t you take them along to Shoe Spa, and see what they can do for you?
They are located close to King’s Cross at:
80 Caledonian Road, N1 9DN London
