Re heeling Doc Marten woman's boots in Edinburgh/Glasgow/Carlisle - Timpsons did a godawful job.


Recommended Posts

It just fell off whilst walking. The originals were worn so I went to Timpsons, these are the replacements. I thought they did a piss poorjob as they made a mess of the material that covers the heel as well. Replaced a month ago, fell of today, disinclined to back to ANY Timpsons ever again as everything I go in for seems hassle (don't even get me started on key cutting) regardless of which branch I choose. 
 

anyhow, looking at the inside of the heel, it seems to me that just banging in a couple of pins was not what was required. Is there a Doc Marten specific re heeler anyone knows about or anyone that can really do this job properly in an of the above three towns or the geographical triangle  between them...? 
 

Would be very, VERY grateful for help on this.

Yet you continue to waste your time and money there like many others
Find a trusted independent cobbler/key cutter, of which there are many, Key Issues in Carlisle comes to mind.

Thank you for the local recommendation of keyshoes, which is what I was after, a personal recommendation. Just looking on the internet isn't enough really, is it, and also fairly obvious. Appreciate the help. 

Drop in anytime. :)  66a Millbrook Road, Kingstown Industrial Estate, Carlisle, CA3 0EU.
