about double o sole

Double O Sole is a family owned business that has been managed by the Glenn family since 1997.  It all started with an apprenticeship under John Swint at Swint’s Shoe Repair on Milledgeville Road in the early 1980’s.  In 1988, I took over that business and renamed it Glenn’s Shoe Repair.  In March 1998, the shop moved to the present location at 3705 Washington Rd, at the corner of Iron and Steel Road.  Now my son, Antonio Glenn, and myself, William Glenn, operate the store.

My grandfather was a slave, and the lesson of economic freedom was passed on through the generations.  My father always told me, “Son, it is better to be independent and have your own”.  Now I am passing that legacy on to my son Antonio.  Antonio joined the business after studying Business at Paine College and Computer Technology at Augusta Tech.  It was very important to me that my son learned the business from the ground up to make sure he fully benefited from the wealth of knowledge I’ve amassed throughout the years.  I want to make sure that when the company changes hands, it will still produce the same or better quality workmanship that has established our reputation.  Antonio is currently responsible for maintaining quality assurance and assisting with grinding, sanding and stitching.

We have never shied away from hard work and that work ethic shows in the quality of the shoes that are returned to our happy customers.  We operate under the principles of giving excellent customer service, providing quality workmanship and using the best materials available to return your items to top-notch condition.
