"Overall i had a great experience with this place. I was told what exactly was needed to be done to my boots, and how much it was going to cost. The only draw back" i would say this place has is parking due to the fact that this place is located in downtown Chicago underneath the "L" tracks on Wells. They open early in the morning at 6:30 am and close usually at 6pm so parking wasn't really a problem getting there either early or late.

"tried beehive after seeing them in a list of 'the best in chicago'. was professional, personable, and appreciative of my business," and made me feel like a valued customer on the first visit! i dropped off the shoes & boots, and they were ready when they were supposed to be. i brought in 2 more pair to be stretched, as i was so pleased with the way the first 2 pair fit after they were. beehive will be my new "go to" place for all my shoe, luggage, and leather repair.

Angie's Answers

?

You would have to have a shoe repair shop evaluate them - some heels are hollow except at the tip so you might not be able to shorten them and retain the necessary strength - others are solid, so he would have to look at them. Might be able to just remove heel cap, cut down, and put heel cap back on.

 

Bear in mind that cutting the heels down will rock the shoe "backwards", so you will be walking on sole further back on the shoe - if the unthickened sole part betweenthe heel and the ball of the foot would be walked on because of this, you might have to pay him to add leather there to, which might mean resoling the entire shoe - could get pricey, if these are not worth hundreds of $.

 

As for evaluating a shoe repai place - only thing I can think is if these are pricey shoes, call store and see if they recommend a particular place. Otherwise Search Angies List for sheo repair places and reviews.

Excellent workmanship! For the boot, you cannot tell that the zipper was replaced. I believe that also shined the shoes. As for the purse, I had the hardware that broke off, the repairman fixed the strap and also repaired the inside of the purse. I only requested repair for the strap , however they fixed a tear on the insided as well for no additional ...More cost. I am well pleased with the workmanship. I will become a regular customer at . Pick-up was scheduled for the following week after 12:00 noon. The items were ready for pick-up as promised.

The gentleman is a true old world (Eastern European) artisan. He's old school and a straight shooter. I gave him my shoes, he looked them over and gave me a price. Cash only. Pay in advance. He gave me a ticket and a promise they'd be ready by the next day. I returned the next day without my ticket. He became fairly irritated by that ...More but eventually gave me my shoes and explained that the ol' Florsheims were c***, though the Italian made pair were spared from comment. LOL! You must appreciate this gentleman for his expertise and let the rest roll off your back.

Their service was fantastic. It is a little shop with all varieties of leather things like bags and skirts and more for pick up and repairs. The proprietor was a very nice man, was very friendly. He went over the repair with me and we discussed when I would like to pick them up and fixed a date. He asked for a 50% deposit and I went back to pick ...More them up. He was just fantastic and the work that he did was great. I had learnt about other places in the area that charge about $80 for each repair but he did it for $18 which also included replacement of a leather part, which I think is great.

It took about 5 days and was done when promised. It's a very no-frills, old-school shop taking only cash(go to the ATM beforehand-bank around the corner). He asked for a deposit of half when dropping off the boots. Very pleased with the outcome and was felt the cost was reasonable for the work that was done. Will definitely return.

Excellent. The shoes looked like new after several other shoe repair shops told me that the shoes could not be repaired. The shoes were French Sole ballet slippers, ballet slippers, $300 shoes. did an excellent job. They were brand new shoes! The boots that were $700 boots, he put in a new piece of elastic ...More so that they will not slide down. Like new again.

I went to the shop to see what they could do for my sandals, they said to come back in 10 days. I had come back when they told me to, and I got my sandals back, they looked just like new. I've been with the company for 6 months or so. They are the best shoe repair shop that I have been to in years were very competent and professional. ...More the owner is very customer focused.

It always goes perfect, I have been using them for years. They do very high quality work and they are very pleasant to work with. Things are always ready when they say they will be ready. They seem to really want you as a customer and they make sure you are satisfied to keep you.

I was happy he did the service within 1 hour, as promised. The level of work was good. I was a bit dismayed that he did not polish the leather or clean the suede.
