With roots firmly being planted as cordwainers, today’s shoe cobbler is a godsend for many and an undiscovered treasure for many others. While traditional cobblers just repaired shoes, the evolution of the art now encompasses a variety of leather goods including luggage, coats and clothing, boots and even shoe dyeing for prospective brides and prom goers. Above-average customer service, reasonable prices and quality work is a must for repeat clientele as well as new customers gained through word-of-mouth advertising. Though it may seem like the shoe cobbler is a dying art form, there are still several great options of repair for those who just cannot bring themselves to throw away that favorite pair of shoes.

www.deansshoerepair.netWith over 20 years of experience in the business, Dean’s is one of the most popular cobblers in the Charlotte area. Offering shoe and boot repair as well as dyeing of shoes (doing its best to match color chips or fabric) and also offering leather repair, Dean’s is a one-stop shop. Customer service is top notch and the delivery of items repaired on time has been a key to its repeat customer base. Dean’s also offers a free shoe shine after its work is complete, or for $3, you can get an old fashioned shoe shine, something that seems to have been lost over time.
