Bodkins Bootery is situated in Fremantle's West End, was established in 1969 and has been successfully known as 'The Famous Bodkins Bootery', a Fremantle icon. You will find none other than the best leather shoes.

Robert Bodkin is a shoe specialist and has been selling custom made, orthopaedic, designer and lifestyle shoes for over 40 years. His philosophy is that foot wear must be comfortable and do the job required. It should be of quality, look good and be value for money.

A good pair of shoes or boots can see the best part of 25 years and may cost you less than a dollar a week. Wouldn't your comfort be worth the cost of a coffee per week? In many cases that's a good comparison of value.

The store is located in the historic Pearce Bros Building, built in the late 1800s for the Pearce Bros Shoe Co. of North  Fremantle. This site has always traded as a shoe store and some of the display shelves are original. This store is worth a visit just to smell the real leather and experience the ambience, the beautiful interior and, of course, the shoes.
