Nathan Baxter of Baxter & Black the artisan cobbler, who has opened on Enmore Road, will look after your quality shoes….. bring him your Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton he’ll even fix those red bottom beauties Louboutins.
Baxter trained in London at the prestigious shoemaking school Carreducker, studied traditional shoe repairs in Budapest and has been a national training manager for an Australian shoe repair company.
Step into the shop and breath in the infused aroma of top-quality leather, which he imports from tanneries in Germany and the UK.
A proud member of the “slow fashion” trend Baxter suggests buying fewer pairs of shoes of good quality and getting them repaired, it worked for our grandparents and great-grandparents – who in making do with less were far better environmentalists.
