"While the gentleman didn't openly
me very friendly upon entering the shop, he was kind and professional in the service. When I told" him what I needed he asked if I had a few minutes to wait and that they could repair them right away. I was thrilled to be able to get them done right then and went outside to wait as I had my dog with me in the car. He came out to get me a few minutes later when my shoes were ready. Very pleased with the service. Will definitely go back again when I have a need.

"This is an old-time shoe repair place in a bit of an obscure location in an old building at the corner of
Rd and St.
" 's Lane, which seems fitting. Opening the door is a little like going back in time. But the gentleman is very nice, gives you a ticket for your shoes, and fixes them in the time promised. He's a little taciturn but is clearly a skilled craftsman. I've been back twice and will go again next time I need a repair.

Shoe Repair

Good shoes can be a great investment, especially if you take advantage of the skills of shoe repair pros. Quality shoes can last for decades with proper storage, cleaning and maintenance. Consider these tips for bringing new life to old soles:

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.

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.

work is amazing - he pays great attention to detail. I have a few pairs of favorite shoes that I take to him every year to be refurbished - he will re-color them or clean them, put on new heels and half-soles - they come out looking like new! Things are almost always ready when promised - the only time they're not is if

feels there's more work he needs to do to make things perfect. His prices are very reasonable, and he also stocks a full line of shoe-related items, like laces, heel and toe inserts, insoles, shoe trees, etc. I highly recommend him!

The store smelled very strongly of shoe polish--I had my husband wait outside with our
Detroit Shoe Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
. That being said, the location is very convenient for those who live.work downtown.
I showed them my shoe and they said they could fix it and they see a lot of these. I thought $26 seemed a little steep for the fix, but they have to open up the shoe to replace the part, so maybe that's a good price. Much cheaper than getting another pair, and I love these shoes. They told me to come back in a week, and I asked if it could be ready in 6 days, and they said no problem. They called me when the shoes were ready (like they said they would), and it was easy pick up. I'm very happy to be able to wear my shoes again the quality of the work was great.

This repair shop was worth driving a few miles out of my way! I have painful bunions and can't afford to be constantly replacing the very expensive shoes I must wear. The owner at this shop was professional, honest, and knowledgeable. The shoes were ready when promised and look great. I will be back next time I need a repair.

I dropped off a pair of boots on Thursday,
Detroit Shoe Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
offered me two choices of replacement soles and said they would be ready Saturday. I went back early the next week,and when I tried to pay he told me cash or check only. I had to leave to find an ATM. Obviously would have been nice to know that ahead of time. Stitching on one boot is fine, the other has a couple of spots that got off track. Redwing wanted $100 and three weeks to put replacement soles on, considering shipping back and forth $65 is probably in line.

This is the 3rd time we have used this shoe repair. He does good work. But the problem is he NEVER has gotten the shoes repaired when promised and it usually takes WEEKS to get the shoes repaired. This last time was the straw that broke the camel's back when we got the same song and dance. He promised to have the shoes resoled in 4 business days. We never got a call that they were done. We waited another week and went to the store to find out if they were done. My husband was told that he was having trouble getting supplies from his shipper. THAT is the same line he gave us last time he couldn't get a pair of shoes resoled when promised. Today I called him back 20 days after we took the shoes in and he acted all surprised that they weren't done and said he would do them today and have them done by 3 PM. Same thing happened last year with him. He will not take your shoes for repair unless you pay up front either. I will never go back to him.

The shoe was ready several days BEFORE the promised date and it was done for a very reasonable cost. This provider has 15 FIVE-STAR reviews on Yelp but does not even exist in Angie's

greeted me as I walked in and with a smile. He explained in detail how the belts would be shortened the proper way. The next day, I received an email that the belts were ready for pick up. The belts are perfect! The shop is real nice and they offer many boot and shoe repair services. They also carry shoes. I'm a forever customer!
