Century Old Shoe Hospital Debuts Web Repair Program

Missed Sourcing Journal’s Virtual Sourcing Summit? It's not too late to view all keynotes and panels from the two days. Watch on demand now.

My Shoe Hospital, a 100-year-old company founded in Houston, Texas, has introduced a new online service which takes shoe repair into the 21st century. The company aims to be a “one-stop shop” for all shoe repair needs.

For the relaunch of MyShoeHospital.com, the service is offering free heel repairs to every new customer. To start a shoe repair, customers need only visit My Shoe Hospital’s website. FedEx will then ship the shoes free of charge, using a postage-paid repair bag paid for by My Shoe Hospital, who will then assess, clean and repair broken or worn items.

“At My Shoe Hospital, we factory refurbish tens-of-thousands of shoes, boots, belts and handbags every month. Thanks to modern tech we are now able to offer our top-notch service to everyone in America,” said Carroll Kelly, My Shoe Hospital CEO.

Kelly also discussed the cost savings and environmental benefits of shoe repair. “Not only will you save a lot of money, but you are helping the environment. We don’t think people realize how much toxic waste is used and how many animals must die in order for a pair of shoes to be manufactured.”

My Shoe Hospital has pledged to donate $1 of every repair to Food For The Poor, one of the world’s largest relief organizations.
