Special orders

Special orders must be pre-paid and are final sales and can not be returned or refunded unless there is an error in size in which case a new size will be ordered.


All items on sale are final sales, no returns and no exchanges. No exceptions.

Shoe Repair

It is an industry standard to have all repairs be prepaid, but here at Modern Cobblery™ we only reserve the right to request a deposit or at times request a full payment before we start work, but the majority of our repair work is post-paid or at your convenience, so please do not abuse.
All repair work must be picked up within 30 days after completion, after that there will be a $5 storage fee.
After 6 months after repair completion, they will be considered forfeited and will be sold or donated at our discretion whether you have a balance pending or not. 

Only exception is hospitalization, death, or acts of nature in which case we could waive part of fees. Other than that, THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.

All repairs, once agreed (either verbally or written) IS a contract and is subject to $5 FEE if the customer wants to cancel repair. NO EXCEPTIONS! 

After work has started (even when tear down has started), no cancellations allowed.

Shoe Repair Warranty

Most re-soling and rebuilding repairs will carry a limited 6 month warranty, that means that as long as the components are in good working order or have not been worn out, we guarantee that glue, adhesives, or stitching or any repair itself will not come apart within 6 months or 50% or tread or use, whichever comes first. All re-gluing repairs carry a 6 month or whatever the manufacturer warranty is, whichever is less. All additional repair shall not cost more than original repair. Modern Cobblery™ or owners shall not be liable for any consequential or incidental damages. Warranty will be void from being exposed to misuse or extreme, adverse conditions, or if customer willingly waives this right or warranty by asking for a job beyond proper repair-ability. 

On stretched shoes, we are not responsible for blow outs, tears, rips, zipper failures, discoloration or fading. 

As another reminder, WE DO NOT ACCEPT ARTICLES WITH BLOOD, VOMIT, HUMAN EXCREMENT, OR OTHER BIO-HAZARDOUS MATERIAL. We can proceed with legal action if you willingly bring this in and do not disclose it.

We work with shoes all day and we have high tolerance for weird funky smells, but if you bring in a pair of shoes that expel an odor so foul that we have to use an industry grade mask to work on your shoes, we will add a $20 to your bill upon pick up. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS!
