+1 for Fix em Up, even though I didn't end up getting any work done: one of my pairs that @suitforcourt helped me bring up last year needed the inner leather lining and stitching replaced, and Corey didn't recommend that I go through with it because he didn't have the right machinery (yet) to do an adequate job. (This would have been a $400-500 job, most likely.) He also told me that my pair of Alden captoes still had enough life on them and that I could hold off on a resole. I respect that kind of honesty and I'm definitely going to him once they truly need it.I can recommend many cobblers outside of Toronto. In my opinion, the ones in Toronto do inconsistent work or won't use materials I want.
Closest ones are Dimar in Guelph, and Fix em up in Barrie. I have reviews of them in separate threads.
If you're willing to ship, that really opens up things. If you want some more recommendations, let me know.
Here's hoping that he'll establish a drop off spot somewhere in the GTA at some point, if only to make it easier for others to send stuff up to him.
