Tucked away in The Canberra House Arcade in the heart of the city lies La Cobbler Shoes; the answer to every woman’s accessory dilemma.
Shaen Flakelar has owned La Cobbler for 12 years and recently relocated into her beautiful new store in The Canberra House Arcade. La Cobbler stocks everything from shoes, handbags, hats, wallets and scarves to gloves, bridal wear, jewellery, hand cream and gift ideas.
Shaen takes great pride in the items in store and specialises in brands such as Hogl, Pindiere, Karston, Pedro Miralles, Sempre di, Caprice, Alan Pinkus and Girogia.B.
"It is very important for our customers to have a unique shopping experience. We want them to feel relaxed and comfortable in the La Cobbler environment" says Shaen.
And that is exactly how one feels upon entering La Cobbler. The store is glowing with warmth and exudes luxury. The walls are adorned with beautiful leather handbags, stylish winter boots, soft gloves and every type of hat you can imagine.
The hottest winter accessories according to Shaen are boots, scarves and felt hats. She also has some advice when it comes to looking after your treasured foot wear.
"Make sure you never let the heels of your shoes wear down to the point where they are irreparable. If you regularly get them re-heeled, they will last for years. With suede boots it is important to water-proof them before you start wearing them."
