The Anatomy of a High Heel

When our cobblers approach a high heel repair project, we focus on structural preservation. There are 4 primary areas of concern when we evaluate any damage:​​

  1. The Upper is the top of your heel.

  2. The Insole is the part your foot actually sits on.

  3. The Heel Base lies in between the heel cap and the sole. The heel base is attached directly to the sole and serves as the foundation for the heel caps to attach to.

  4. The Sole and Heel Cap are the components of your high heels that make contact with the ground and give you the traction and support you need while walking. This is where the majority of your wear and tear occurs and basic repairs can be maintained. However, if you wait too long and wear through these layers, you risk damaging the insole and/or upper, which will result in more extensive repair needs.

Heel Cap Repair

If you love wearing heels, you’re very familiar with the tiny plastic heel caps that protect the base-end of the heel.

These plastic heel caps are attached to a metal pin that sits inside the heel to keep them in place. When the heel cap is worn down (or off!), it needs to be replaced pronto.

Tip: If you’re currently experiencing the dreaded “clicking” sound while you walk in your heels, it surely means your heel caps have been worn down to the metal pin.

DON’T THROW AWAY YOUR HEELS! 99% of the time they can be repaired by our skilled cobblers.

Sole Repair and Sole Protection

Many high heels and pumps - especially designer brands -tend to be made with delicately thin soles. These thin soles are surely beautiful, but they can be problematic if you actually want to wear the shoes outside of your house! 

Inevitably, the soles of your heels will get worn down—and fast. 

If your soles do get worn or pull apart, not to worry! Send your high heels in to our expert cobblers and we’ll expertly re-glue the soles back down or completely re-sole your heels and get them back on your feet in no time.

Shoe Shine, Cleaning & Leather Refinishing

We can beautifully shine, clean, and/or completely refinish your heel uppers whether they're leather, suede, nubuck, or any other fine finish.

​Shoe Shine: A shoe shine consists of first cleaning off all the dirt, grime, and old polish, and then deep conditioning the leather until its buttery soft. Next, we hand rub a wax or cream polish to provide stain and color, and last, we buff the shoe to bring out the highest shine possible. The friction and heat we produce with rigorous buffing activates the shoe polish and produces a gorgeous sheen that makes your shoes look fresh and new.

​Deep Clean & Refinish: If you want your shoes to look similar to the day you picked them off the shelves (or likewise, if they are made of suede, nubuck or fabric and can’t be “shined”), you’ll want what’s called a Deep Clean & Refinish.
