Theres one on the outside of the Grainger Market.  I think its called The Green Market Cobbler which as the name suggest it used to be in the Green Mark when it existed.

If you're talking a hand made pair I find returning them to OS the best option.

If they're a pair you've picked up off the rack then the grainger is as good a place as any.

Just to update you all, and because I believe in singing someone's praises if they do a good job for a reasonable price...I ended up taking them to 'Soled Out' in Whitley Bay...the old guy who runs it takes a real pride in his work, is an exceptional cobbler and a lovely bloke also!

Very reasonable prices also for top end 'cobbling'

I've since taken my Loakes, Grensons and other Oliver asweeney shoes to him.

I can recommend him whole heartedly!

Cheers

Those "high end" shoes must be crap if you keep having to have them repaired.

I bought a pair of flip-flops from Lidl 3 years ago and the soles are as good as the day I bought them!

Your probably wearing them upside down mate...hence no wear on the sole.

Easy mistake to make!

Politically incorrect/ racist joke alert..

Guy walks into a shoe shop , and is struck by a lovely pair of pink shoes on display..catching the assistants eye, he enquires about them...'the finest shoes we have sir..100percent human skin..$500 a pair...................after taking it in the guy says....gorgeous shoes...but out my price range.....not a problem sir says the assistant.....we also have them in black at $1-99
