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 in his Bradford hometown.
‘It's all about micro-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’
As of 2021 Dean has become an Expert on BBC1 The Repair Shop - joining craftspeople from many disciplines & using his skills to restore treasured footwear and leather items.
Yorkshire Sole aims to offer the finest workmanship with an award-winning approach every time.
