BAXTER & BLACK
Hello, I’m Nathan.
Shoe repair and shoemaking have provided many countless hours of joy in my life. It has been something that has resonated with me for most of my life.
Thankfully I have found that I could work with my hands, meet a host of interesting people, and explore my passion for shoes under one roof at our store in Newtown, Sydney.
I’m proud to now offer my services to the wider community and look forward to meeting you and your shoes.
