Dr Marten’s Boots and Shoes, Comfortable Boots and Shoes, Durable Footwear,
Downes Reliable Shoe Repairs was established over 100 years ago and had traded at the same location for the entire period until development finally caught up with it in early 2014, Barry Toombs, a qualified shoe maker, purchased the business in 1985 and has carried on the good will of the past owners, keeping the quality shoe repairs and friendly specialist service that Downes Reliable Shoe Repairs was renowned for.
In the late 80′s with the repair-ability of shoes declining Barry (The Doc Father) started researching quality boots and shoes that a boot maker could recommend, he found Dr Martens, which were little known in Australia, only being imported sporadically from England. Barry contacted the only importer and together they brought even more styles to Aus, there were no catalogues or size runs in those days, Barry received a shipping container every month and Brisbane loved it. Very soon a Dr Martens authorised importer appeared and Downes Shoes was one of their first suppliers and have continued our long and happy friendship to this day specialising in the biggest range, cobbler quality product knowledge, and repair of Docs and all things Dr Martens!!
