Consult a cobbler: Shoe repair shops in Calgary

We put our shoes through a lot in Calgary, from the ice and slush of winter to the dust and heat of summer. Inevitably, they require care and repair. Rather than retire your favourite footwear once it’s a bit worn, visit these shops where professional, experienced cobblers will get them looking brand new.
