Shoes need repairing regularly in Dubai, which isn’t surprising considering the extreme heat and dust they need to contend with – but finding a good repair service in the city is easier said than done… We’ve spent hours trawling the old town and despite finding some talented cobblers, it isn’t convenient in the long run for those living on the other side of the city.
So we were thrilled when we discovered Ndust; a shoe repair service in Al Barsha that offers a pick-up and delivery service covering the whole city. In true convenient Dubai style, there’s no need to even pick up the phone as you can book a pick-up online.
Prices are affordable and the service is quick. The company imports products from Europe and North America – and impressively, are the only cobblers in Dubai that we have found to have the red sole needed to protect our beloved Louboutins!
If you can muster up the energy, however, we really recommend a visit to the workshop in person. The staff can give expert advice on how to look after your shoes, which will save you money on cobblers fees in the future! They also offer on-site shoe shining if you want to give footwear a new lease of life.
