Tom revealed he had followed in his grandmother’s footsteps and was passionate about sport too, but sadly the shoes had been neglected and were in a bad way.
Taking a look at the shoes, Dean said: “I’ve worked with running shoes but nothing of this age, but I like a challenge.
“I’ve been repairing shoes for about 15 years now, and in this job, you never know what’s coming next, and every pair of shoes is different.
“That’s the beauty of the craft, and you’re always learning, so even though I’m 15 years in, I’ll be learning for the rest of my days.”
