You’ll find exclusive men’s boots, bags and accessories from luxury English brands and more at Charles Brooks.

Charles Brooks was established in 1972, filling a gap in the footwear market by being one of the earliest retail and repair shops in Sheffield. The master craftsmen’s specialist skills in restoring customers’ battered but much-loved shoes back to their original condition soon won the Fulwood Road-based workshop recognition. Word of mouth ensured that a faithful band of Charles Brooks’ customers came from all over the region to buy exquisite shoes and to have their footwear restored.


The bespoke shoe repairing service went from strength to strength and later expanded into sourcing exclusive men’s boots, bags and accessories from luxury English brands.

Today, Charles Brooks is still a prominent shoe seller and bespoke footwear repair business and the one thing that has stayed constant throughout their 48-year history is attention to detail, together with a personal service and knowledgeable advice.
