We perform all types of shoe repairs at Cobbler Bill’s. However, if you have an issue with your heels and you like to repair things for yourself, we have a great product that works well for many people.

We sell a great product called Freesole that we recommend for many different applications. It’s a liquid urethane and normally wears better than the original material.  As you know the weather here in Portland really puts our shoes, repairs, and products to the test. We have found that Freesole really holds up under our challenging footwear conditions.

This product is a liquid gel that hardens after application. It can be molded to fit the form of your shoe heel. Freesole can be used to repair many shoe issues including:

  • Heels that have come unglued
  • Heel cracks and holes
  • Uneven wear patterns
  • Supination
  • Pronation
  • Flapping heels
  • Worn toe caps and rands

Freesole provides excellent adhesion that is resistant to wear and abrasion. It’s waterproof, flexible and long-lasting. We sell tubes of Freesole for only $11 so, with a little gumption and DIY spirit, you can fix your shoes for a real bargain.

Of course, we also repair heels and are always here to help with your shoes or boots. You can bring your shoes into our store for repair or give Freesole a try. Either way, we hope to see you soon!
