Sorry just seen your reply. it is probably too late now but the place I mentioned near to the level crossing has been and is still open!
I can confirm this. It's called Dr. Shoes.
Sorry CRAB you are confusing this matter. Just refer to my original post.
This Shoe Repairer and repairer of many leather products and zips etc is on Riab Tang Fai road which runs outside the HH railway station. Come out of the station and turn left towards Soi70 Chomsin Road. Before you get to the new round-a-bout ( say 500mts from the station) the shop is about the last one on the left hand side. he has been there for very many years and is still there.
Sorry for the confusion. In that case there are still two active shoe repair places by the railway line. Good.

It seems to me that you have a shop near of the Basement of Robinson's, Sukhumvit, directly opposite the rear exit of Top's supermarket

I'm afraid you've lost me there. We're talking about shoe repairs in Hua Hin. There's no Robinson's / Tops market in Hua Hin. There is in Petchaburi but the only Sukhumvit that I (or any of the Thais I've asked) know of, is the road that goes from Bangkok to Pattaya.

Bought some Camel shoes for walking...after two short holidays the sole on one is completely coming apart from the shoe...looking to fix it locally...any leads to local repair much appreciated.
Do you ever found any shoe repair shop in Hua Hin? I found Dr. shoes today following the directions in previous posts here but I don't know if he do a good job and are somewhat excited to see the result.

404 - He is very good and has repaired with stitching shoes and new rubber soles etc. He does golf bags too, and zips for clothes.
The business looks rather run down but is actually full of outstanding jobs. I honestly believe he has a small 'gold mine' going, and all family members. Back to your purse I think take it to him and show the problem. I do not think he speaks much English, although very many Farangs' go to him. If you take somebody who speaks Thai so much the better. Good luck
and he ruined my sandals,just cutting half of the velro that you use to tighten over the foot,so now i have to put it into the hole every time i put them on.
The best part was that he denied it and then charge me 300 baht, so no more money from me,he has doing some good work for us before,but this was a pair of sandals to 5000 baht,old but still.
Remember when we lived in Smornpong, i passed hes shop daily and thinking ,what a pr..k

:cheers: :cheers:

I spotted a shoe (and bag) repair booth whilst out and about this morning. It's a little hut through a gate at the traffic light junction of Soi 56 and the Klong Road.

I took a couple of photos with my new phone, but the sun was very bright, and being new, I had my finger over the lens :oops:

I've no idea if he's any good, but if anybody tries him, please report back.

My wife had him do a small shoe repair, involving stitching, two days ago. Seems OK. 30 baht.
