Repair Not Reject
Brandon's has been around since the 1920s, when the family had several shops and a dedicated Repair Shop. Times change. Now, sadly, the Annerley shop is all that's left.

Don't throw your shoes away and get a new pair. Take them to Annerley and there's good chance they'll be made as good as new. Here is a man who follows those good old fashioned standards of value for money and pride in workmanship.

If they are unable to be saved, have a look around. You'll probably find something suitable and very reasonably priced on the shelves.

Lots of reasonably priced shoes to try on.

Brandon's is not a flash shoe shop. It still looks the same as it did when I was a kid. Floor to ceiling shelves of boxes.

Shoe Repairer Extraordinaire.

It's also a place where you can buy bits and piece such as leather thonging, shoe dye and you can also get keys cut.

Why not try dyeing some shoes.

They also carry some really funky shoes like those in the photo. There is a catalogue with the most amazing shoes and boots.

Aren't these adorable?
