Colour - Natural

These oval natural suede leather outsoles patches come in three sizes and many colours. All are priced in pairs so a quantity of "1" gives two pieces. Originally designed for adding a bit more grip to slippers and slipper socks we found they are useful for many things. Add a 10m card of super-strong waxed thread in a toning colour. 

We're not quite sure what best to call these very useful shapes with holes ready punched for stitching or as a base for crochet. Paws? Footpads? Paw prints? 

They make great elbow and knee patches and are ideal for adding durability and a bit of grip to socks and slippers of all sizes* not to mention they'd be rather good soles for dog shoes! 

Small 7.5cm x 5cm (almost 3" x 2")

Medium 9cm x 6cm (3 1/2" x 2 1/3")

Large 12cm x 8cm (4 2/3" x 3 1/8")

Perfect Product

I have a pair of very comfortable Norwegian bed socks in natural wool. Unfortunately the heels had worn through. I searched high and low for some easy way of repairing them without the lengthy task of darning. Thanks to Joestoes, I found the suade punched patches which I have seen in and the socks are back in service. Product arrived rapidly and well within the promised delivery period. I am elated by this product and service.


Finally I have found these! I have been looking for this sort of patch for years for the bottom of my knitted slippers, I am delighted that now my slippers won't wear out so soon. Such useful patches.

We're so happy that you've found these useful. We couldn't find them either so we decided to start making them!

Excellent product and seller

First of all, the seller, Amanda, is so helpful and answered all my questions before I bought the these patches. The guide for shoe sizes is really helpful and I bought brown patches in size large and size small for a UK adult size 5 slipper sock project.

The product was dispatched super quickly. The suede is high quality, soft but durable. Great value product and will be ordering again. Thank you Joe's Toes!

Thank you for your lovely review of our suede patches. It's lovely to hear that the care we take selecting our materials is appreciated.
