Zipper replacement - Clarks Leather Shoes

Shoes & Leather

A customer came to us with a very nice pair of Clarks shoes, however one of the zippers was damaged to the point of needing a new zipper.  To do this repair, once the damaged zipper is removed, we craft a new zipper to the correct length and glue it into place. We then head over to ‘Connie’, our shoe patcher, and carefully stitch the new zipper in place. ‘Connie’ excels at this type of repair: negotiating into tight spaces where precise stitching is needed.  You’ll notice that the slider is slightly different than the original.  This is because the original zipper was not YKK, and we only stock industry standard YKK zipper parts. The slider was close enough, and the customer was very happy.
