Our History

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_column_text]Roy’s Shoes & Repair has been a Kelowna mainstay for 45 years. The original owner “Roy” moved his repair shop from Quesnel to Kelowna in the early 1970’s. Back then Roy’s was the place to buy a good handmade work boot. A number of years later he sold it to “Dan” (Roy #2) who sold it to Jim (Roy #3) and Karen Belshaw in 2007.

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_column_text]When the Belshaw’s bought the store it sold numerous shoe brands, work, and cowboy boots. These days their shop specializes in what they do best and that is shoe repairs. They stock a line of comfortable seniors/diabetic shoes and a small selection of quality slippers.
