For me personally since my university days and hiking, that was the place to take my hiking boots to be resoled. My current veldskoene has had 3 resoles and some tender loving care given by the team led by Raj Jaga and then as I supinate, they also give the heels a shave to accommodate for walking it off on the ends.
They did wonders to my favourite laptop backpack (which even with a lifetime guarantee (Targus) and that I could get a new one, I preferred my old one - so they fixed it to my satisfaction.
Their customers come from far and wide and Raj will always greet you with a friendly smile and a good chat included. They also won the Cape Talk 567 Business Awards in 2011.
I will continue to make use of their services which is excellent and their handiwork something to be proud of.
in presentations when I talk about the best brand experiences I always talk about Gilette razors globally - and Rocksole Shoe repair on Wale Street in Cape Town. The Jaga family is just a spectacular example of customer focus and quality of service. I have tremendous respect for their approach to business.
Leather, shoe, bag, etc repairs. They are fantastic.
