"Poor. I took the items in on August 19 and was told they'd be ready September 4, or thereabouts. By Sept. 11 I had not heard anything and so called to inquire." They were not done. I called one week later and they still weren't done. I finally said I would just pick up the stuff and get my money back, but when I went to the shop, and behold, they were being worked on. They were ready the next day but I was not impressed with the work. The spot where the strap was replaced had a big purple on it. The guy said it was brown dye so it would match the shoe, but it looks like purple magic marker and does not match at all. Lots of excuses, not professional, poor workmanship. I feel like the work only got done because I called and went in to ask about it repeatedly. Plus, they make you pay up front so you pretty much have no recourse when they hold your stuff hostage.

"I had difficulty getting to the store before it closed. The first time I tried to drop off my shoes I arrived fewer than 5 minutes late. The "open" sign" had already been turned off, but the lights were still on and I could see the owner in the back room. I knocked several times to see if I could just drop off my shoes, but the owner never acknowledged me. Even if he wasn't willing to let me in after hours, I would have appreciated it if he would have acknowledged my knocking and asked me to come back when the store was open. My other two interactions with the owner were markedly socially awkward. The quality of his work was fine, but it was not at all easy to interact with him.

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.

My boot heels looked so bad that I was ready to throw out the boots altogether. The heels were worn down past the sole of the heel. re-soled the heels, somehow filled in the worn areas, and polished the heels and boots. They look great! The work was completed in timely manner. Note that pre-pay is required.

I had worn the pumps only a couple of times when the delicate strap holding the shoe together broke. I liked the shoes, had spent quite a bit on them and was afraid they couldn't be repaired. I didn't have anything to , so I brought the shoe in and asked the repairman what he thought. He said there wouldn't be ...More a problem and I could have the shoe back in a few days. He was right, there wasn't a problem, the shoe looked like new and it's still holding together.

He was very courteous and business like. He wanted a 50% deposit because of the large number of shoes that were not picked up. He talked to me at length about the proper way to fix my shoe. He did an excellent job, and I would definitely recommend him to my relatives and friends.

He is courteous, professional, and very good at what he does. All the shoes were European with unusual soles and heels. He hand made some heels. He asked me if I was happy with quality of the work on a particularly difficult shoe. He volunteered to redo the heel so that it looked more original.

's is reliable and does great quality work at a reasonable price. Shoes were ready when they said they would be, and they're professional and friendly. They suggested toe protectors for these shoes, but were fine when I passed on having that work added. Only slight fault is that I think their hours are a little too ...More limited. It would be nice if they could extend their evening and saturday hours a bit.

The downtown minneapolis Shoe Repair did an excellent job. They are by far the best shoe repair in town. He's honest about what can be fixed and what can't, and the work is high quality, which since I buy expensive designer shoes, it's well worth the investment. A little more expensive than some repair places, ...More but definitely worth it and I can always trust him to take good care of my shoes while they're being repaired. Highly recommend Shoe Repair!
