    Anyone recommend a good one in Hull?

    I have some boots I really like but need new soles.

    Is that still a thing?
    Can’t I just plug them into a USB and do an update
    Can I get Virtual Reality ones instead?

    Who is best at sticking rubber onto my well worn leather uppers?

    Reckon that bloke in the market might be a good bet. I've had 'proper' shoe and boot repairs at Timpsons, expensive so the boot has to be worth it...

    My stepson just got a pair of trainers which come with an app that does the laces up for you ... seriously ... like the ones in Back to the Future. Guess that's not what you are looking for though.

    Hasn't she retired from being a prostitute on TV and become a film director?

    Brilliant cobblers down a little Dickensian alleyway near The King Billy in Cottingham, run by, if I remember correctly, one Walter Pybus.



    Although, he was about a hundred and three when I last took a pair of shoes in there, back in 1979, so this may not be my most reliable piece of footwear related advice.

    Campey’s on Londesborough Street Den, next to the chippy, skills passed down through generations, the shop’s been there forever, definitely the best cobbler in Hull

    You mean this thread isn't about Northampton Town?

    Sounds good
    That’s the type of info I was after (unlike Fer Ark who thinks I’m wearing high heels!)

    There’s one I use in Doncaster and they are outstanding. They’ve done a few pairs of Church’s shoes for me now and they’re better than sending them back to Northampton!!

    Sounds like there’s a load of cobblers!

    cheers all (seriously, that’s very useful)
