A Shoe Cobbler In the Making
Shoe Lab is no overnight success story — this has been years in the making! Our CEO Julio Cardona started to learn the craft at age 12 as a shoemaker and shoe cobbler before he arrived in the US. Once he arrived, he was employed by Shoe Lab and then eventually named the owner in 1994.
Shoe Lab is a family-owned business. Julio launched more locations and brought his family in to learn the shoe cobbler trade so that they could pass it from generation to generation. As the CEO, Julio takes it upon himself to be on site every day. It is the reliability and quality of work that makes this business strong.
Leather repair is a skill that Shoe Lab has mastered over the years, expanding the business into more than just your average shoe cobbler shop. At Shoe Lab, each restoration project – whether it is handbag repair, furniture repair, luggage repair or shoe repair – is treated with care and customization. No two products are the same, and the specialists at Shoe Lab have extensive knowledge of how to treat each item at the highest level.
