About Us

Proudly serving London since 1965, Westown Shoe Clinic & Repair conducts repairs for the following products: shoes, orthotics, leather, suitcases, golf bags and horse-riding boots. We offer while-you-wait service whenever possible, and we’re here to fix whatever the customer brings in!


We also dye leather shoes and repair or completely rebuild many leading brands of shoes and sandals, as well as all leather and sporting goods. We specialize in orthopaedic prescriptions and custom-made orthotics and shoes.


Shoemaking or cobbling continues to be an art form long steeped in tradition and dignity. Traditionally, cobblers are craftsmen who can repair shoes for a fraction of the cost of a replacement pair, which is good news for your budget during these sometimes difficult economic times.


Our prices are very reasonable and our shoe cobblers have all the years of expertise and training necessary to successfully repair your shoes with the utmost in care and respect.


Our Commitment

At Westown Shoe Clinic & Repair, our customers can depend upon honest, friendly, fast and reliable service. We can quickly fix and repair anything!

Many Londoners will remember him as the Village Cobbler in Wortley Village, where he sold and repaired Birkenstocks and high-end fashion shoes. His addition to the shop was a real coup.

Richard Manuel

Richard Manuel


Richard Manuel began repairing shoes for Moneysworth and Best in Masonville Place in 1990. Otherwise known as Mr Stitch-it, Richard has become known for his creativity. If the job needs a needle and thread, he's your guy. He can modify riding boots by making the calf bigger or smaller and the boot shorter or taller. He is also an expert at replacing zippers in purses and backpacks and converting lace-up shoes to Velcro in such a way that it's hard to tell there has even been a change. You have to see it to believe it.
