Redpath's Shoes is one of Canberra's oldest businesses with almost a century of experience in the shoe trade. Stepping inside their Civic store is like stepping back to a time where quality and craftsmanship were important and service was genuine, warm and offered by people who actually know what they're on about.
The team at Redpath's have managed to combine the old style expertise with an on-trend offering of amazing shoes which will make your feet the envy of anyone you stroll past. Established in 1922 and owned since 1985 by the current owners, this family business shows that specialising in a niche, quality offering can work.
The range on offer includes stay at home comfort, weekday workwear, weekend walkers and formal fabulousness to keep your toes tapping no matter what you have planned. Whether you're in the market for Crocs, Docs or Birkenstocks, your feet will find something they fancy. There's an extensive range of fine European leather footwear, hiking boots, work boots, uggs and even thongs. Many of the shoes here are hard to find styles you won't see in the average chain store, so if you want to stand out from the crowd, this is the place for you. As well as adults shoes for both men and women, there are also all kinds of shoes to keep kids feet looking good.
As well as sales, Redpath's offer a shoe repair service which is second to none and a huge (and I mean mind blowingly huge) range of laces and polish in every colour of the rainbow to keep your shoes looking sharp.
As a specialty shop, Redpath's is beautiful to browse and a real Canberra icon to boot. Highly worth stepping inside, taking a look then stepping out in style.
You can get your old shoes repaired at Redpath too.
