Bear Shoe Works has been around since 1912! We pride ourselves in our expert shoe repair. Resoling is one of the most common repairs that we do at the shop. If your footwear is resolable our expert cobblers on site will resole them. There are many different resoling options when choosing a sole. Some of the option are not limited but include, wedge sole, heeled sole and soles with different traction patterns. Our cobblers will give you their honest and expert opinion on whether or not to resole your footwear.
Here is one of our YouTube videos on resoling a pair of Red Wing Irish Setter Boots.
Bear Shoe Works does a lot of custom alterations. For example, if you need a strap lengthened we are usually able to accommodate your needs. Another example of a custom alteration that our repair experts have a lot of experience with is a “build up” or “lift”. This is when one shoe or boot needs to be heighten. We can put a build up or lift in any of the footwear we carry in store and online. But, we also work on footwear we do not carry. If you have any questions about custom repair please feel free to reach out to us and we will be happy to assist you.
