About Us

After nine years in the trade working at various cobblers across the North of England, Dean Westmoreland entered and won the prestigious UK Shoe Repairer of the Year in 2016. This instilled the belief he could practice the craft under his own ethos, one of no compromises on materials or workmanship and a genuine quality before profit approach. In 2017 Yorkshire Sole was born. 

‘It's all about detail to me, small things like cleaning and polishing the uppers on all repairs as standard, using brass nails in heels instead of steel, using hand tools, hand welting and treating each pair of shoes as my own. All this and more seemed to have been forgotten’ 

Yorkshire Sole aims to offer the finest workmanship with an award-winning approach every time.

We specialise in the repair and recraft of Goodyear welted footwear from dress shoes such as Crockett & Jones, Trickers, Loake, Cheaney, Church, Oliver Sweeney, Barker, Jeffrey West, Sanders and more. Fashion and work boots such as Redwing, Wolverine, Thoroughgood and more.
