Place your order

Please read through the steps below to get your items in our queue.

  • Write a short note for each pair/item you’d like looked at, include what you want addressed, any color or material preferences, concerns, and need-to-knows about the items. Please include your name and contact information.
  • Put the items in a box, tote, paper bag, etc.
  • Decide if you are going to bring the items to Derek’s, ship to Derek’s, or schedule a home pickup.​
  • Write a short note for each pair/item you’d like looked at, include what you want addressed, any color or material preferences, concerns, and need-to-knows about the items. Please include your name and contact information.​
  • After the quarantine period, we will disinfect the soles of all shoes, and read your notes carefully. We will also look over the items thoroughly, and note of any additional issue.
  • We will then call you and do a phone consultation about your repairs, how much the work will cost, and how long it will take. We will confirm how the items will be returned to you: curbside pickup, shipping, or home delivery.
  • If you approve the work during the phone consultation, we will take a full payment or half deposit over the phone (or send an invoice) and we will start working right away. If the work is not approved, we’ll make a plan to get your items back to you in a timely manner.
  • We will return your items to you after the work is completed. If there is a balance on the order, we will send the final invoice.
