local boot repair shop Ned to Longmont area?

Any suggestions for a quality boot repair shop in the area surrounding Boulder? I've heard of a good place in Denver but that is over an hour from where I live so if there's a good one that you have had positive experience(s) with, I'd prefer to go there.

I looked on Yelp / City Search /Google and the reviews are all over the place.

What I really need is a cobbler to alter some of the leather on the top edge of my boots to add a flap that can reach velcro on the other side.

Perry's Shoe Shop in Boulder does quality cobbler work.

I don't know if they do the kind of custom work you are wanting, but one of the few places left that can still do quality refurbish/resole type repairs.

That's great to hear. Now that I think about it, a shop that does leather work/repair would also be a good candidate too. Any thoughts anyone?

Little Boot in Longmont +1

Took my boots to Little Boot in Longmont, on Main St. Small shop - with lots of room for working on shoes/boots. The owner came up with a simple and elegant solution to add velcro at the calf area. Told me they would be finished the following week. I called a few days later on a lark, just to see, and they were done! Extremely reasonable alteration cost ($16); the work is seamless with the rest of the boot.
