"The proprietor was surely and obnoxious, insisting if I did not return with his "ticket" I would not get my shoes back. Then he tried to sell me a
" , size 7, when I had requested a size 6, which he did not have in stock. He asked for a week to repair the shoes and I later realized he dated the ticket for 9 days. Having a disability that affects my gait, giving up my most comfortable shoes was not easy. Returning 9 days later to pick up my shoes since close parking is almost impossible, the proprietor insisted my husband describe the shoes. My husband was unaware which shoes I had left for repair, thinking the ticket was enough. Finally the shoes were located and returned to me. The worn elastic straps were repaired nicely, but the pin on the buckle to be straightened and reattached fell off the buckle. I knew I no longer wanted interaction with this business again, so I reaffixed the pin to the buckle, but was unable to fit the pin into the slit in the elastic so I push the elastic to the side to fasten the buckle. So far that works.

"Very pleasant & easy to work with- brought in a pair of wedges that were too tight in the toe box. They stretched the toe box area for me- shoes fit perfectly & are now very comfortable! Price was excellent.

"Initially, the lady at the counter said the turn-around time would be a month. eek! She offered a run job option, for an extra 10 percent. That way I could pick up the same day. I" opted for that, since I could get them back sooner and I felt better about my shoes not getting lost. (Not that I had any reason to expect that, except what I have read in general about repair places misplacing things.) I dropped off around 11:30 and I picked up at 4:30 the same day. They polished my shoes, too. Had to pre-pay for the service.

After decades of losing business, repair shops are reaping a benefit of the sluggish economy as people hang on a little longer to the things they already own.

Shoe Repair

Customer says she can't wear her shoes because the zipper repair looks bad. Shoe repair shop says they did a good job and won't give her a refund.

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.

They were supposed to repair the handle rivets on an expensive Bosca leather briefcase.
They took 5 weeks to replace the rivets at a cost of $110.00.
Two months later the new rivets failed and broke.This place might have once (a long time ago) been good, but they
are not any more.
Go someplace else!

Very professional! Explained all charges and time frame for repair.
My only concern, they made me pay for services before work was performed. I don't personally like that, but everything turned out great! Would definitely use them again!

A charm school this shop is not but the work that I have had done (repeat customer - I keep going back for more) is good. I have always had a very clear understanding of what they would do with the shoes so I have not been disappointed. I tend to believe that if a shop does not say they will do something I do not expect it to be done. The shop carries a nice inventory of shoe care products and laces so it is nice to have a local spot to be able to see polish colors first hand rather than buying on-line and hoping for a match.

They do excellent work. The strap on the hand bag was repaired so well that I couldn't tell which of the straps had been fixed, and at first, neither could the owner himself even though he had done the repairs.
This is a well established business with an excellent reputation. It has new owners who are carrying on the excellent work for which the shop is known for!
The owners are very pleasant and customer friendly. I highly recommend

Walked in expecting to leave for later pickup. Immediate attention from service personnel who looked at my needed repair and said :Got a minute?". Repair done quickly at reasonable price. Will definitely return for any future needs ... full-service shoe shop. Highly recommend.

I have used
Detroit Shoe Repairs Provider Name Locked
for several years and have always been pleased with the results. They have always offered helpful advice (such as' "these shoes are so far gone it wouldn't be worth trying to repair them UNLESS you are completely in love with them.") I feel that they are honest and very competent in what they do. Sometimes some of the staff can be a bit brusque but I can forgive that because they do such a good job with the shoes.
(Note that their old address is still on this posting. They are still located in Fairport, but now on N.Main St. just a little north of the RR tracks.)
