We offer a full range of services, including while-you-wait shoe shines, handbag repair, and preventative care (see our Services section for a list of our most common repairs). In addition to offering a full range of leather care and repair services, Derek’s carries a variety of shoe care products and tools, including polishes and waxes, brushes, dyes, leather cleaners and conditioners, insoles, laces, cedar shoe trees, and much more. Looking for something? Give us a call. We can’t wait to meet you!

At Derek’s we offer two types of orthopedic lift designs. First, with a Lift on Top, we will add the lift to the outermost layer of the existing sole.

The second orthopedic lift design is an Integrated Lift, where we separate the existing sole material and insert the lift in between.

Please call the shop or stop by with the shoe you want augmented for more information.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Derek’s Shoe Repair has closed the shop for your safety and ours. We anticipate re-opening on Tuesday, April 14th.

If you are interested in supporting Derek’s in this uncertain time, please consider buying a Derek’s eGift Card. They can be used anytime in the future for repairs or retail items, and will not expire.

If you have any questions or need shoe/accessory care advice in the meantime, please call the shop at (502) 226-0765 and leave a message, email us at dereksshoerepair@gmail.com, or fill out the “Contact Us” form at the bottom of this page. I will get back to you as soon as possible.

We so appreciate your patronage, and I truly cannot wait to begin serving you once again. Please be safe, practice responsible social distancing, and if you get oil on your leather, coat the stain with 1/4″ dry baking soda and let it sit a week.

with love,

Jessica & Mr. Kim
