Bob's Shoe Store has had a home on Market Street for over 30 years selling groovy shoes, assorted styles for guys and gals and old-fashioned, friendly service.
After 30 years, Bob decided it was time to clean house and upgrade the digs. We've moved 2 doors up from our old location but still have the same grreat shoes, best prices and old-fashioned, friendly service. So do the shoe-shuffle down and come say howdy - the Bobette's would love to see you!
Hailing from Fremantle, Western Australia, Robert Schuster was an impressionable 16 year old when in 1956, he joined the merchant navy to see the world. He visited many happening ports far and wide and landed in Long Beach, California. During extended shore leave, Bob took a room above a 'mom and pop' shoe store by the beach, and soon found himself helping out during busy times. It was here that young Bob learned the Art of the Shoe.
In 1964, Bob returned to Fremantle, married his childhood sweetheart Betty and was so taken by his Californian experience that he opened the first Bob's Shoe Store. Combining everything Bob had come to love during his formative years in the USA - shoes, music and pop culture, the store offered a unique shopping experience and struck a chord with the locals. More stores followed over the years, and the rest, as they say, is history!
