Downes Shoes

Fortitude Valley

Undoubtedly Brisbane’s best place to buy Docs, Downes Shoes has been a longstanding icon, once gracing one of the Valley's oldest buildings and now finding its home on Wickham St since the 2014 re-development of Bakery Lane.

The change in location hasn't altered the essence of what makes Downes Shoes Brisbane's best. This iconic shoe haven is renowned for its specialisation in Dr Martens modification, rehab, and repairs, offering a professional touch to ensure your favourite Docs receive the care they deserve, as well as selling a great range of Dunlops and Blundstones in Brisbane.

In the heart of Brisbane, Downes Shoes is where you'll discover Australia's largest array of Dr Martens, a paradise for Doc enthusiasts. The shop takes pride in being the go-to destination for all things Docs, boasting an extensive in-store collection of boots and shoes featuring unique styles rarely found in the Southern Hemisphere.

The inclusive sizing policy, spanning from Women’s 5 to 11 and Men’s 6 to 15, ensures that everyone can find their perfect fit, with an additional range catering to the littlest shoe aficionados, with an array of Dr Martens for kids on hand.

Beyond the impressive footwear selection, Downes Shoes extends its offerings to include an array of Doc Martens accessories. From laces to leather backpacks, shoe care products to logo socks, wallets to belts, the store is a comprehensive hub for all things Dr Martens. A great spot to shop if you're buying a gift for a Doc Martens enthusiast!

Notably, their commitment to top-notch service shines through in their meticulous handling of online orders. With swift dispatch within one business day, customers can trust that their purchases are personally inspected for perfection before making their way to new homes. At Downes Shoes, it's not just about selling shoes; it's about delivering quality and service that goes above and beyond - taking the next step, so to speak!

Nice to know - Dr Martens make for a stylish and durable school shoe.
