Sole Survivor skillfully use techniques such as stretching, patching, dying and polishing to transform worn-out shoes and boots into refreshed and revived footwear. From recorking Birkenstock sandals to replacing the soles of Dieppa Respetos, resoling Redwings and  everything in between Sole Survivor is your go to shop for custom repairs and more!

How it works

Shoes can be sentimental and leaving them someplace new can be a stressful experience.  At Sole Survivor we want to make the entire process as streamline as possible so you can feel good about getting your footwear fixed. Every single repair job gets dropped off at one of our two locations in Toronto. From there, one of our knowledgeable and skillful team members will discuss the specific needs of your shoes or boots and tell you exactly how we plan on solving the problem. We provide you with an estimated quote before you leave.

Please note that we are not an in and out repair shop. Although we strive to fix your footwear in a timely manner a quality repair is always completed with veracity and care. It may take longer for particularly challenging projects and sometimes there is no quick fix option. In the case that an entire overhaul is necessary, we will discuss the options with you to help you make an informed decision. All drop offs are done on a first-come first-served basis.

The wait time will depend on the project and can vary depending on the season and on the volume of repairs. We will always call you as soon as your shoes are finished and ready to be picked up. As always, we appreciate your business and look forward to accommodating your individual needs.

*Prices may vary and are subject to change depending on the nature of the repair. We are happy to discuss custom projects with you in person. Stop by one of our locations with specific concerns or give us a call. Please note: At the time of drop-off a 50% deposit must be paid on repairs over $20.

*For custom designs please contact us via email to book an appointment.
