"After getting me to demonstrate the issue while walking around the store while he listened,
(at least I'm guessing it was
" ) diagnosed the issue and clearly explained the repair and its cost. The job was done in a matter of a few days and the result has been very satisfactory. The shoes were returned to me in great condition.

"Very well.
and easy. Went to the Westerville shoe repair and waited 15 min. just for the guy to show up! Decided to consult my angieslist" referral system. I AM SO GLAD I DID! Yakov took care of the problem immediately. He probably had it done the same day but I waited almost a week to come back. It was ready and I was happy! Go to the 72 Dillmont drive near high street in
. Check here before you go anywhere else. You won't be sorry.

Shoe Repair

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.

Angie's List
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.

did an extraordinary job. He is truly a master of his craft. Given the price and low quality of most shoes today, quality shoe repair is difficult to find. I was pleased to find

and even more pleased with his work. I buy good quality shoes and take very good care of them. As I said, these shoes are over 15 years old, and he made them look and feel like new. Very impressive.

Based on Angie's List recommendations, I brought a pair of winter boots and a pair of shoes to BSR to get heels replaced. When I went back a week later to pick them up, Mr
Glen Ellyn Shoe Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
Repair at first couldn't find them. He rummaged around in the back room for a while and then came back to say they weren't ready and could I come back in half an hour. When I went back, the shoes had been shined but not repaired. When I pointed this out, Mr
Glen Ellyn Shoe Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
Repair said I had only requested a shine, not repairs. I asked him why I would bring shoes to a shoe repair shop just to get them shined. He said people do it all the time, but because of the "misunderstanding" he wasn't going to charge me for the shine. (Thanks a lot!) I then took the shoes to

What a great place! We will definitely use them again. He repaired (resoled and restitched) a pair of beloved suede wedge boots that I thought were irreparable. I'm so glad to have them back! And he did an excellent job on my husband's shoes as well. Great price, excellent quality, and quick turnaround time.

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.

The store smelled very strongly of shoe polish--I had my husband wait outside with our
Glen Ellyn 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.
