Status: Abandoned (inactive)
Proposed by: Gregory Arenius
Tagging: shop=shoe_repair
Applies to: node node area area
Definition: A shop which repairs shoes, boots and other footwear.

Rendered as: A shoe with a hammer above it.
Drafted on: 2009-05-14


A shop where shoes, boots and other footwear can be repaired. These shops sometimes repair other items, such as purses, as well. They are usually very small owner-operated shops.


These shops are very useful and common throughout the world. They need their own tag.

The term shoe_repair was chosen instead of term cobbler primarily because it is more common and much more friendly to non-native speakers. It is also less ambiguous since the word cobbler is sometimes used to refer to shops that make custom shoes.



Add a node node tagged shop=shoe_repair in the center of the shop. Larger shops may be mapped as an area area tagged as shop=shoe_repair.
