Our Story

Our story starts in 2008.

Witnessing the seemingly unavoidable disappearance of local artisans and craftsmen, we found ourselves largely unable to purchase quality dress shoes, or having them repaired properly. We were reminded of neighbourhood cobblers, who used to magically revive even the most battered shoes, with a very humble, matter-of-fact mind set. We remembered true artisans, tucked away amongst their tools; their strong, rugged hands working the leather behind a modest counter, sometimes barely bigger than a phone booth.

The Cobbler draws its concept from this legacy.

“A wish to revive traditions and celebrate craftsmanship”

It then became obvious to provide a traditional and ancestral savoir-faire: our Master Cobbler is recognised as a being a ‘Compagnon du devoir’, a prestigious qualification delivered by a French professional apprenticeship, training to the highest standards of expertise.

We are today extremely proud to say that all of our Craftsmen are delivering their Art within these rigorous guidelines, combining discipline and passion.

The Art of Being a Gentleman

Style for us at The Cobbler goes further than dapper aesthetics. It encompasses fundamental values of courtesy, honour and exceptional quality; and these are all shared by our craftsmen. This is why sourcing noble materials, ensuring fair manufacturing practices and enhancing knowledge transfer amongst artisans lie at the core of our retail venture.

As such, the essence of The Cobbler lies into designing shoes and accessories made for the modern gentleman.

Acting as a gentleman is an effortless way to raise confidence and cultivate character, without being overpowering.

Our shoes are designed for the confident male, whose timeless poise echoes his education and well-mannered approach to life.

The Cobbler for Her

Ladies, let’s be honest, how many times have you heard these words:

“I have tripped my heel in the elevator and now it is all ruined – I had just worn this pair once!”

“I am devastated, my son has dropped some apple juice on my suede bag!!!”

“My white sneakers look grey…”

“ Is there really no one in here that can repair this zipper???”

And we could go way further…
