10A Hill Av­enue, Amer­sham 01494 431848 Mon­day to Satur­day 9am-5pm, Sun­day 10am-4pm town while they are here and bring business to the town. How did you get into it? When I was a teenager my girl­friend’s friend was a shoe re­pairer and I was al­ways watch­ing them and what was go­ing on. They of­fered me a job and I gave up study­ing me­chan­ics to work there. What do you most like about your job? I meet a lot of in­ter­est­ing peo­ple and we have a lot of fa­mous peo­ple in the eques­trian world who come in here. What is the next step for the business? I want to set up a web­site with pic­tures of the shoe re­pair process so peo­ple can see the in be­tween sec­tion and not just the be­fore and after pho­tos. Why did you call it Snobs? In the 18th cen­tury, the word meant shoe­maker. Neil Pur­ton is the founder of Snobs in Amer­sham
