    We don't usually refer to people's shoes being available. I would say something like "Please get your shoes fixed so you can wear them next time I'm here. I might need you to go to meetings with me."

    As you can see, "when" is not required.

    Not required, but not wrong. Correct?

    I find it very unnatural. If you want to use "when", I would change the word order to "... so you can wear them when I'm next here" or "... so you can wear them when I'm here next week/month".
