Hi Toronto SF members,

 

Can anyone recommend a local cobbler who can  install recessed metal toe taps?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi, Check out Leon's Boot Alterations. A bit up north in Vaughan, but worth the hike! Great quality service at a great price.  Have been going to him for the past 5 years. Highly recommended! http://bootalterations.com,

I took my Blundstones in to get re-heeled, they did a great job albeit with Blundstones.

I contacted Nick about recrafting a pair of vintage shoes, and adding Joh Rendenbach soles. He never heard of them before.

 

I'm sending my shoes to B Nelson and Cesar's Shoe Repair. Both in NYC and both will use JR soles. It's sad that Toronto doesn't have any decent cobblers.

So new question:

 

Has anyone found a cobbler in Toronto, or GTA that will use Joh Rendenbach soles on a recraft? Nick's Custom Boots has never heard of this brand before.

 

B Nelson and Cesar's Shoe repair in NYC will use it.

 

Most high end shoes, including Allen Edmonds Cordovan line uses JR soles.

So because a cobbler doesn't use the soles you want, they're not a decent cobbler?

He has never even heard of this brand, let alone use them.

 

Do you know of any cobbler that uses JR soles?

I don't know of any local cobbler who uses JR soles so I either do like you and use B. Nelson shoes in NYC (i'm there a lot so often able to drop and ask for a quick turnaround to I don't have to deal with shipping). Otherwise, I have a guy in Montreal that a few people on here have used who does probably better work, but it still involves shipping. The guy uses traditional methods (ie. he will keep the shoe lasted for about a week when resoling) so a quick turnaround isn't possible if you quickly visit, but the work is truly outstanding and worth the wait.

Thank you! I will stick with B Nelson and try this Montreal fella as well.
