6 Best Shoe Repair Shops in Edmonton  

Buying new shoes is fun, but it’s not always something we have the budget for. This is why for damaged shoes, looking up the best shoe repair shops in Edmonton is definitely the way to go.

Good thing we have all the answers for you. Whether your kicks need a new sole, or your dress shoes need more shine, these top-notch shoe repair shops can fix it for you!

Cost of Shoe Repairs in Edmonton

Let’s be honest: we pay a lot for a good pair of shoes. So when shoes get damaged, having them fixed up can be the more cost-effective option.

Sometimes, the damage requires little more than a drop of glue, but other times we need a more expert pair of hands to extend the life of our footwear.

To this end, we compiled the average cost of shoe repairs in Edmonton to give you an idea of how it may cost you. 

Do note that the exact price will depend on the extent of the damage as well as the possible replacement parts needed.

For more complicated issues, the cost of repair might exceed the overall value of the shoes. In this case, getting a new one would be the better choice.

Below is a table on common shoe repairs and their average price. We do suggest setting aside some amount to tip your shoe repair person too!

Heel Replacement$10 to $40
Sole Replacement$30 to $80
Shoe StretcherStarting at $20
Insole and Footbed Replacement$28 to $60

Where do we start looking? Happily, we compiled the best options for you to choose from.

Expertise. Naturally, we want shoe repair shops with shoe repair persons who know what they’re doing. Here, we took into account how long they’ve been in the industry and their range of services.

Expert Shoe Clinic has been around since the 60s, so it’s no surprise that they are on this list. Their current owner, Luigi, is a fourth-generation son born into the family business and has been learning the trade since he was 11.

We love that they have such a warm and friendly atmosphere inside the shop. Staff are accommodating and very knowledgeable and will assist you through the whole process of getting your shoes fixed or cleaned.

We appreciate that they will tell you what can and can’t be done in terms of repairing your shoes, so you don’t have to shell out money for repairs that won’t be possible anyway. 

They also have highly reasonable prices, although they base their quotes on the state of the shoes in question. They do not have a price table, but from what we can tell they have competitive pricing and won’t overcharge you at all.

We are pretty sure they only accept cash, which can be inconvenient, but hopefully, soon they can have more payment options. In any case, their rates won’t hurt you much at all so we don’t see this as much of a problem.

Customer reviews are excellent for this little shop, although their location downtown can be a bit hard to find. Parking around the area may also be tricky, although they do have a pay parking from a pay box right in front.

Nonetheless, we like that they have quick turnaround times, so if you’re in urgent need of a repair they won’t disappoint. 

As an added bonus, they also repair and clean handbags and alter boots. 

All in all, we highly recommend Expert Shoe Clinic for your shoe repair needs in Edmonton. They have friendly staff, reasonable prices, great service, and a quick turnaround time. 

Pros

  • Has been in service for over 60 years
  • Reasonable prices
  • Also repairs handbags and boots
  • Has a quick turnaround time

Cons

  • Cash basis only
  • Inconspicuous location
  • Parking around their shop is not always available

Customer Reviews:

Impressive time frame and honest service

“I went in to see if they could put new soles for grip and fix the inside soles of my Gucci white loafers, he told me what could and couldn’t be done in terms of leather restoration and that the soles were a quick fix. I was impressed with the time frame and honest service. The rates were very affordable! I will bring all (my) future shoes to him!” – RC, Google Reviews

Incredible job for a very reasonable price

“Love this place. Had my Louboutins resoled here and they did an incredible job for a very reasonable price. Highly suggest!” – Jordan Poulin, Facebook

Shoe Masters Londonderry is located right in the shopping center, so they’re easily found and accessible. Being in the mall is also great because if you’re looking for a simple repair that can take just a few hours, you have the option to hang around the mall.

We like that their staff are so accommodating and knowledgeable. They will let you know what they will do with your shoes, and even educate you on how to take care of them.

Since they sell Birkenstock and Moccasins, they will also let you know what you need to know about the products so you can make an informed choice. We appreciate that kind of honey.

Overall, they seem to have a relatively quick turnaround time as well, but time frames may depend on how busy they are. 

Their prices also depend on the extent of repair needed for each shoe, but because of their location, you may expect to pay a bit more compared to other shoe repair shops. However, they’re not so expensive as to be unaffordable. 

Customers still find their prices reasonable, and for great service, we do believe they deserve the compensation.

All in all, we consider Shoe Masters Londonderry to be one of the best shoe repair shops in Edmonton. 

Pros

  • Accessible location
  • Also sells shoes and other products
  • Has a key-cutting service

Cons

  • Price may be on the higher end

Customer Reviews:

Quality workmanship and excellent customer service

“Kieu was thoroughly professional and did some amazing work with restoring the heel and reconditioning my shoes. He gave me an education and provided helpful tips on how to better care for them. Highly recommended if you are looking for quality workmanship and excellent customer service. As a first-time customer, I really felt taken care of and was amazed at the finished product. I wish I had some before pics to show.” – icewaterwithice, Google Reviews

Awesome price and quick turnaround

“I knew there was a shoe repair shop in Londonderry Mall (because the boyfriend also had his shoe sole repaired once here) so I had stopped by after work today to see if they were able to fix up my boot. The nice lady said yes she could fix it and proceeded to tell me what and how she was gonna do it and the price, $7… and she was able to finish it in an hour! An awesome price and QUICK too! I was expecting it to take a few days.” – Lisa T., Yelp Reviews

Shoe Shine Shack is located in the Historic Mercer Building, so if you’ve heard of it chances are you can find them easily. If you haven’t, they’re still easily found using Google Maps which is something we all like.

Beyond their easily searchable location, Shoe Shine Shack is known for its quick shine shoe care service. They’re great at making old, worn-out shoes look brand new. 

If you accidentally spilled something on your shoes, get it wet or muddy, they can help you make it look brand new. 

We think they may not be the best option for urgent shoe repairs because their usual turnaround time is 4-5 business days. However, they do have the option for rush services with added charges.

What we like best about Shoe Shine Shack is the fact that they have a definitive price table which you can see on their website. This way, you get an estimate of the amount you need for each pair of shoes before you walk in, although the final cost will still depend on individual cases.

All in all, their prices are on the more expensive side, but they make up for it with great services.

While not strictly a repair shop, they do offer shoe repairs as well, and they’re excellent at it. We also like that their staff are just as excellent at taking care of their customers. 

We like that they will walk you through the entire process and inform you what products they are using for your shoes, and why they’re using it. 

We also like that they sell shoe care products, laces, socks, and consignment shoes, so you can shop for all your shoe needs while waiting.

They even have gift certificates which you can purchase if you need something to gift your friends or family, so if you’re looking for something to surprise your folks with you can definitely check them out!

Pros

  • Easily accessible location
  • Sells consignment shoes, shoe care products, laces, and socks
  • Has gift certificates available for purchase
  • Has a price table available on the website

Cons

  • Prices on the expensive side
  • Has more focus on cleaning than repairs
  • Charges an additional fee for rush orders

Customer Reviews:

Best in the business

“I had spilled engine oil somehow ONLY on my brand new pair of suede boots. As you can see from the photo, this is the hardest stain to remove from anything. from the moment I took these beauties to the boys at Shoe Shine they treated them as if they were their own boots. After a couple of attempts at washing them, we, unfortunately, had to dye them a darker colour to hide the stain. I was hesitant at first as I got them due to the colour but when I got them back they actually look 100x better! These guys are probably the best in the business. Highly recommend these guys for all your shoe/boot needs and they are actually affordable and explain everything upfront prior to taking any sort of payment.” – Chris Mundy, Google Reviews

Always super friendly and helpful

“They treat their customers with care and it’s clear they take pride in their work! Always super helpful and friendly. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!” – Amber DeMaere, NiceLocal Reviews

The current owner of Fast Shoe Repair and Sneaker Cleaning is Emmanuel, and he’s a very friendly guy. He’s also highly capable and can fix up just about any shoe problem you can find.

We like that they’re very efficient with each job, letting their customers know what can and can’t be done and doing it in a timely manner. They’re also offering their services at highly competitive pricing, something we highly appreciate.

They only accept cash, however, which may be inconvenient for some people. They also don’t have an official website, although you can easily reach them through their social media pages and phone number.

Nonetheless, Emmanuel seems to be a craftsman who truly loves his job. Many customers are returning clients who swear by his great skills at making old, worn shoes look new again.

All in all, we recommend Fast Shoe Repair and Sneaker Cleaning for your shoe repair and cleaning needs. As an added bonus, they also repair purses and leather jackets, so if you’re in need of those you can definitely check them out.

Pros

  • Affordable prices
  • Repairs purses and leather jackets

  • No official website apart from social media pages

Customer Reviews:

Couldn’t be happier with the service

“I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from the owner. I brought in 2 pairs of shoes to have them stretched as they were half a size too small. Emmanuel ensured that I’m happy with the way they fit before I take the shoes home. Would definitely revisit for any future shoe repair services.” – Shannon Song, Google Reviews

Great quality work for reasonable prices

“Emmanuel put handmade leather inserts under the insoles of pointy shoes in the heel and midsole areas. I bought a bigger size to have more room in the toe boxes and they were too loose everywhere else. Now they look good and fit properly. He also put new rubber soling on vintage sandals that were worn thin and fixed one of the straps that broke. He does great quality work for reasonable prices and he’s honest about what can be done.” – Jes, NiceLocal Reviews

David’s Shoe and Leather Repair is located on the main floor of the breezeway at The Callingwood Marketplace which makes it easily accessible. We also love that they have a wheelchair-accessible entrance. 

David owns and manages the store on his own, and while he does great repairs it may take some time, particularly for heavy repairs. Nonetheless, his customers are often returning due to his great craftsmanship and professionalism.

We love how polite David is when dealing with guests. Even when responding to negative feedback on Google, we saw how patient and understanding he was in explaining his side without putting the blame on anybody.

All in all, we love his energy, although we would have loved it more if he had more social media pages or a website where we can contact him.

David not only repairs shoes, but he also cleans them along with other leather items. He can work on leather purses, jackets, or book covers.

We like this flexibility, as well as his fair pricing. We are sure you will love him as well, which is why he put him on this list of the best shoe repair shops in Edmonton.

Will be coming back next time I need a fix

Zapato Sanchez is a shop that accommodates a wide range of shoe repair and maintenance services that has been serving the area ever since 1985. Family-owned and operated, they have been in the industry for over 35 years and are even supported by various local businesses such as Gravity Pope, Mr. Derk, and Snowflake among others.

We like that they remain relevant despite their old-fashioned approach, they can still combine contemporary Italian design techniques for clients to have an excellent finish to their shoes.

From stitch repairs to glue repairs, their shop is adequately equipped with quality materials and equipment along with trained personnel for the job to ensure that clients get the best out of their money.

Though note that they only have one shop currently so clients living far away from the shop may need to reconsider their choice.

  • Wide variety of repair methods available
