Shoe Repairing, or shoe making, is a traditional handicraft profession. People who repair shoes are also known as cobblers. As the name suggests, shoe repairing deals mainly with repairing of shoes, however, in Ann Arbor cobblers also produce a range of footwear like shoes, boots, sandals, etc. A shoe maker or repairer is also known as a cordwainer in Ann Arbor. A cordwainer is somebody who makes shoes and other articles from fine soft leather. Historically, there was a distinction between a cordwainer, who made luxury shoes and boots out of the finest leathers, and a cobbler, who repaired them. This distinction gradually weakened, particularly during the twentieth century, when there was a predominance of shoe retailers who neither made nor repaired shoes.
