Boot Repair & Shoe Repair Done Right

We’ve been in business for over 100 years.  And over that time a lot has changed.  Today’s work boots, safety boots, and casual footwear are made in a variety of ways not available a century ago.  But here’s what hasn’t changed.  When you have that perfect work boot that fits perfect you want to hang on to it.  And Bear Shoe can help you with your boot repair, shoe repair, and even custom work on your current boots or new ones.

If you’ve got the boots or shoes that you love and don’t want to part with, Bear Shoe can bring them back to life.  These days people think when something is worn out or too old you can just throw it away.  But we want you to know, you can get repair work done on your favorite boots or shoes.  We still know how to repair your footwear.

Custom Boot and Shoe Work

Maybe you’re not looking to repair your favorite set of work boots.  Instead you might be looking for some custom work on a new pair of boots or shoes.  We can help you out with that as well.

There are times in life when you just don’t get the exact right fit on your footwear.  Today with all of the amazing advancements in medicine we often find customers who have recently been through knee replacement or hip replacement surgery.  And after everything has healed their footwear isn’t exactly perfect.  We can build up your shoes or boots, and customize your new footwear to match your current needs.
