    Cost of Re-Heeling?

    Popping into town later, and ive got 2 pairs of boots which want re-heeling, anyone know roughly how much this costs?

    Just wondering, if its worth having done or not.

    Depends on the size of the heels, but last time I did it for my better half it was £8 a pair.

    Hmmmm, well, luckily theres 2 really close to each other, so im going to pop to both and get a quote first see which is the cheapest
    Hope they can do it within the hour too, as dont really want anything from town....

    I wouldn't use Timpson, go to one of those ubiquitous stalls that seem to pop up in Shopping complexes.

    Why not use timpson?
    Thats one of the 2 actually :geek:

    Timpson are extraordinarily overpriced - use your local independent/stall

    Too late, went and got them done at timpsons.
    £7.95 for metal tips on one pair
    £6.95 for rubber on the other.

    As someone said they paid £8 to have theres done, thought they were fair prices so didnt bother going to the independant one.
    Oh well, im happy, but next time ill ask at the independant one how much

    It is a woman thing, the soles themselves are fine, not ever warn its the heel tip thats worn down....

    Now theyve been done, both pairs look brand new again....

    And, besides, these are both expensive leather desiger boots, im not binning them!

    But on some lady's boots the heels snap or wear away VERY EASILY and VERY QUICKLY. lol. It's better to have them re-heeled, especially if they were expensive boots.

    Well, one of the pairs of boots were £80 from faith, no way i was binning them, theyve been reheeled with metal tips now, so wont want doing for along time now, little disappointed actually, as faith boots are usually metal tips anyway my other faith boots are already metal tipped :-(

    The other pair of boots, arent actually faith, but still cost alot as there real leather, both are in fashion, and i like them both, so for that £15 it cost today saved me buying 2 whole new pairs of boots, not that i needed them anyway

    I think, you may have your wires crossed, its not the heels or the soles that wanted replacing, it was just the tip on the end of the heel.

    Well, another pair of my boots needed reheeling, so off i popped into town, decided to go to the local reheeler instead of timpsons, and im fuming :shock:
    I said how much for metal heels "£4 love" i said for metal?

    He said yeah, do you want to wait for them :shock: timpsons charged me £8 and told me it was an hour wait!
    Rest assured timpsons have now lost my custom, robbing sods!
    For the £4 they even recoloured the heels and everything, and im really pleased with it, cant say the others were reheeled that good at timpsons!

    And, also the local one, had rows and rows of shoes/boots, timpsons only had a few.

    me thinks you have a serious shoe (heeling) fetish

    She just has a major heel fetish, thats all :whistling:
