Figure Skate Repairs

Some Skate repairs are best left to the manufacturer or even a shoe repair shop to be completed due to the equipment needed to perform the repair.

Repairs such as boot relining or complete new heels and soles are best left to the manufacturer or shoe repair shop.

The following repairs can be done at Geppetto’s:

  • Plug old holes and reseal boot bottoms
  • Level soles and heels before mounting blades 
  • Glue down loose tongue linings
  • Replace old insoles
  • Minor arch build-up corrections to insoles

If, in our opinion we are unable to repair your skates, we will advise you as to the proper place to bring or send them too.

  1. I live in Massachusetts and have an old pair of figure skates and my lining in disintegrating. Would you have the ability to reline them? Happy to pay to ship them out. They have some sentimental value, but I would like to keep using them if possible.
    Thank you for your time.

    Thank you for you time.

  2. Shot in the dark.
    My Lady used to skate semi-professionally and has these really expensive, older, skates with great sentimental value. The lining could use some attention, but the major issue is that all of the white finish is crumbling off of the exterior of the boot. I’m not ignorant about boots- but apparently I know NOTHING about skate boots. Long story short, I cannot get any kind of polish to stay on the boot. I’m desperate for suggestions and help.

    1. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix or repair for the type of damage you are explaining. The age of the skating boots is also somewhat working against you, as the leather has probably turned very dry and brittle. The best advice I can give is to find a shoe repair or leather repair store in your area. The boots may need to be stripped down to the bare leather to be re-dyed and polished.

      Hope this helps, and thank you for visiting our website.
