Mind you, I have had these boots for 15 years and they fit like a glove before he resoled them. We have left the boots twice to get them stretched out and they are still too tight. I am so upset because these were not cheap boots when I purchased them (over $100). I am bringing back for the 3rd time to restretch and I will let him know if he can re-stretch them to be wearable again, he will have to purchase me a new pair of

"Took the shoes across town to this shop because of the reviews. The other reviewers apparently went somewhere else. Took the shoes is on Nov 14. Asked for leather" soles and heals like I had. (these are dress shoes). Was asked to pay in advance ($107 w/tax) Was told a week, come in on Friday (Nov 21). Went on the appointed date. Shoes not ready, come Monday. Went Wednesday, Nov. 26. Shoes not ready, come on Friday. Shoes not ready. Called Sat to see if ready. They are ready, but we are closing early. Went on
8 and shoes were finally ready. No apology. So mad I didn't inspect them. Got them home and they look like two different pairs of shoes. The sole on one is 1/4 inch wider than the other, the shape is completely different. Garbage job at a PREMIUM price. NEVER AGAIN!

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.

They are great. They were very straight forward, polite, professional and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend them and will continue to use them.

, but I said he could keep the shoes because they were ruined. I made a mistake - I should have taken the shoes to another shoe service, he did make the offer. The soles should have been removed and resewed so that the bow would have vanished. Very frustrating, had

does this in such a way as to make it not only effective, but aesthetically undetectable to the naked eye. He does this by slicing off the outer sole and replacing it with one that a) increases the height in the center, b) tapers the heel and toe to make walking easier and c) blends into and complements the rest of the shoe. All of this is done without compromising the comfort and feel of the shoe, since the inside is not changed. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I popped in one Thursday morning based on the excellent reviews on Angie's List, carrying a pair of dress loafers that were in need of heels. Trouble was, I had to leave that weekend for a job interview that came about rather suddenly and needed those shoes to look good for the interview. The nice people who run the shop understood my situation and turned the job around in an hour! Talk about great customer service!
I will definitely use them again and recommend them without hesitation.

I had a brand new pair of shoes and when I put my foot in the stitching to the strap gave way and the strap came off. He repaired that so it was perfect again. On my sneakers I had two little spots where the rubber had peeled a little bit and he was able to put them back up so they were like new again. They are excellent and very inexpensive. They are old fashioned and can just do whatever little thing you need doing.

I got tricked into visiting this place because it is located in Busy Bees' former building and has Busy Bees' old phone number, too. So, I just assumed that BBs had changed its name.
I dropped off some espadrilles for re-heeling, some Loubs for a protective sole, and some wedge pumps for winterizing. Both cobbler and
Longwood Shoe Repairs Provider Name Locked
refused to give me a solid pick-up date.
When I called a week later, they told me "next week." When I drove across town the following week, only one of the three pairs was ready.
When it was all said and done, the quality of the work was mediocre at best. Worse: the sole on one of my pricey espadrilles was detached.
No mention of the damage. No apology. I'd have brought them back and asked him to fix his mistake, but I frankly just don't trust him.

The gentleman who helped me at the

who is, I believe, also the cobbler, was professional, kind and helpful. Finally and most importantly, the quality of the work was absolutely top notch.
I brought in a pair of black

wedges that had suffered serious damage during the miserable winter/spring of 2014. The
leather along the bottom of the soles was swollen and discolored and a little hole in at the base of one heel made the entire task seem totally hopeless.
I had previously brought my wedges to another cobbler and been disappointed at his attempts to revive them. So, I went to

as a final effort to save them. The turnaround was 7 days; the charge was $37; and my wedges look beautiful. He bought me at least another season out of these shoes. I'm delighted with this place and will be back.
