During this workshop you will learn everything about the maintenance of your shoes and other leather items. You will learn exactly what to do to keep these beloved items in a good condition for as long as possible. We also show you how to carry out minor repairs. Consider, for example, the placement of rags.


What we will also do during the workshop is a crash course in cleaning sneakers. You will learn which cleaning products you can best use for the different parts of your shoes. Bring your own sneakers! 


A shoemaker’s shop is a place where you can go with different items. If the zipper of your boot is broken, we will install a new one. Do your shoes need new heels, we can also arrange that. We take care of your items with personal attention, so that you can keep them with you for a long time and experience even more stories and experiences with them. We always say; every shoe has a story!


Femke Dix has been a shoemaker for more than five years. “The craft really came my way. When I walked into a nice shoemaker’s shop, I immediately fell in love with the profession and have never let it go.” She is now the proud owner of Sole shoe repair shop in Hilversum and is every day ready for new challenges and stories that walk into the store. (Do you want to become a shoemaker yourself? Femke still has room for one trainee!).
