O/T Shoe Repair - Not a spam thread! Ted needs help!

Good afternoon,

Sorry for the O/T thread but if I can't take advantage of the knowledgable folk of Northampton then I don't know where to turn! As Northampton makes the best shoes in the world i'm finding it increasingly more difficult to find somebody to do a decent job of renovating a pair of shoes!

Long story short, I've got a beautiful pair of Loakes that I've worn to death, I've left it too late to use their repair service, does anybody know of an independent that will basically give my shoes a damn good polish!

I'm drawing a blank on the chain stores throughout the town centre!

Help please!

Not sure what it's like any more because it's been a while since I lived there, but there is a cobbler in Old Duston who may be able to help.

Excellent, thanks, I'm in Duston this afternoon!

Failing that, I'm not adverse to a trip to Tring!

Timpsons in Weston Favell centre have always done a good job on my Loakes

just be mindful that he closes half day on wednesdays (probably to let the impact of the glue fumes on his brain subside!!)

Whatís wrong with you man! Best way to polish shoes is a damned good tin of polish and some vigorous wrist action! Plus a bit of spit to bull the toe caps.

Bring back National Service I say.

Ah, Stockers, I do genuinely feel Iíve failed at being a man, I have no problem doing this with a solid boot or shoe, yet I am constantly defeated by the humble brogue!

St Ted - the Crockett & Jones website has a demo clip of their Paris branch manager showing how to polish shoes. Itís worth watching even if you donít intend to polish your own.

That video is excellent, thank you, I have been doing it wrong, it was the high gloss finish I could never achieve on brown brogues, this May weíll have done the trick!

This thread is one of the reasons I love the Rugbynetwork's fora - beggar all to do with rugby but I just cannot imagine soccer supporters having this conversation.
