Mens' Longsole Repairs

From heels and half soles to longsoles, our in-store Master Craftsmen can perform a range of repairs to suit your needs as well as restoring damages in leather for all footwear and leather goods. Below is an example of a full Longsole Repair.


Mens' Longsole Range

Here is a selection of our range of men's Longsole Repairs. They can be repaired using varying materials such as leather, rubber or a combination of the two.


Our KOKOS Leather Longsole Repair uses high grade leather. Specially sourced, this natural material is breathable making it the traditional choice, sympathetic to the quality gentleman’s shoe.


Our Hybrid range combines the traditional aesthetic of a high grade leather longsole with the added resilience and grip of a rubber sole.


The most hardwearing of our three categories, rubber provides the most traction and is resistant to water. We can even convert your leather soled shoes to rubber soles, for example Dainite is popular as it retains a similar thickness and style to a leather sole. For a more rugged look, the Commando sole is ideal.


Specialist Repairs

As well as heels, half-soles and longsoles, our Master Craftsmen are able to fulfill specialist repair requests. 


Fiddle Waist Construction:

As well as repairing shoes with a fiddle waist, we can also convert the sole of a standard dress shoe to this elegant construction. As is the case with a fiddle waist construction, the stitching has been changed from a groove stitch to a channeled stitch, which elegantly conceals the thread within the leather sole.


Ladies' Repairs


Here at KOKOS we are able to repair a large range of leather goods including your much loved bags and shoes. We pride ourselves on respecting the individuality of each leather item when restoring it to its former glory. From worn soles to scuffed heels, our in-store Master Craftsmen are able to refurbish your footwear sympathetically to the shoes' original design, allowing you not to worry when enjoying that special pair.

Here is an example of how we have carefully repaired and re-coloured the red sole of a classic court shoe.



At KOKOS we have all the accessories you will need to keep your footwear in top condition. Our Master Craftsmen provide an aftercare service suited to your shoes. Our friendly team will also be happy to advise you on the best product for your leather goods.
