Perfect Thing - Well Heeled Shoe Repairs, Edwina Ings-Chambers, p12

Gucci trusts them, as does Soho Shoes, and if your loafers are in need of some sole you should too. What Cypriot Kyriacos Zorlakkis started in 1954 as a made to measure shoe service became a leather repair store in 1981 when son George took over. He'll restore your favourite pavement pounders to their original condition. Everyday heels can go round the corner but for your favourite footwear it's worth walking that extra mile. Or at least using its postal service. KG shoe and luggage repairs, 253 Eversholt St, London, NW1 1BA tel: 020 7387 2234
