My Shoe Hospital

"We weren’t always online. Then again, they didn’t have the internet in 1906." Cobblers Direct is a homespun spin-off of the world-famous Shoe Hospital family of companies that have been repairing shoes, boots, handbags—even luggage, horse saddles, jackets, and near-anything made of leather—throughout the great state of Texas since 1906. The Shoe Hospitals very first store in Houston took the shape of a horse-drawn carriage one hundred and fourteen years ago. Since then, we’ve opened dozens of brick and mortar stores throughout Austin, Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth and San Antonio to serve the repair needs of all shoe and boot buffs, connoisseurs, mavens, collectors, and enthusiasts alike! Today, the Shoe Hospital family of companies is the largest shoe repair company in the world, taking great pride in the quality of our craft. About 15 years ago, people began mailing their shoes and boots (unsolicited) to our doorstep, asking us to fix them. Some couldn’t find a local repair shop, while others were longtime customers who had moved out-of-state and knew we'd be happy to help. We realized quickly that there was a need to offer our shoe repair accessible online, so we could reach anyone and everyone who sought it—even overseas. And thus, Cobblers Direct was born! Nowadays, just about everyone in our family is woven into the business—from grandparents and parents to aunts and uncles and from sons and daughters to spouses and cousins alike. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re so happy you found us! Now, how can we help?
