George Torouno

The best cobbler in Melbourne. My wife takes her designer shoes here whenever they need a bit of attention or repair, and the team always use the utmost care. We wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Michael has been of great service. Polite and helpful. He was able to fix the lock with ease and most off all, it did not cost near as much as other places. Thank you and I have recommended his services to my friends.
