About The Cobblers and Warren Barthes
The Cobblers is a pioneering fashion-tech startup at the crossroads of Luxury, Streetwear, Technology, and e-Commerce. Founded in Miami, the “Silicon Valley” of the east coast, they set out to revolutionise the luxury items Resale and Restoration industry by onboarding highly skilled Artisans onto a one-of-a-kind online marketplace and data analytics platform.
The business itself is a ‘shoe rescue’, fostering a symbiotic marketplace where select sneakers may be authenticated, restored, and given new life, either with their original owner, a resale buyer, or through a secondary vendor-dealer.
The Cobblers aims to give rise to a new cultural movement, pioneering the upcycling approach. Their innovative restoration and fast approaching trade-in offerings enables customers to keep shoes and handbags in use for as long as possible.
The business aims to extract the maximum value from leather goods while they are fit to be used, as well as to recover and regenerate their value at the end of their lifecycle.
Today, their Artisans restore thousands of luxury items every month. They offer expert cleaning, repair, restoration, and customisation services for premium sneakers and high-quality leather goods. Customers can send in women’s and men’s shoes, handbags, and leather garments.
