"The shop owner asked what I wanted in thickness and material for the soles & heels and had the sandals ready for me on the next day. Prompt, efficient service. My favorite sandals will last a few more years.

"He never called me. When I called him on Friday, he told me he was having trouble finding wheels. I reminded him I needed the case for a trip by Thursday. He assured me he'd have" it done and he'd call. Later in the week, when I got no call, I drove to the store, 20 minutes each way. His wife was there and said he was at home and, after looking, she said the bag must be there too. So I couldn't take it. I had to drive out again on Saturday after calling to be sure the bag was there. He said it was fixed. He had put on two wheels that didn't match the bag's other wheels, one of which wasn't even the right color. He told me he couldn't find the right wheels anywhere, but hadn't called to ask me about using used and incorrect materials. I told him I wouldn't pay for the work done as delivered, and he accepted that. (One of the wheels he had attached actually fallen off at the end of trip.) Totally unprofessional work and communication. It cost me a lot of time and frustration. I suggest you delete the outstanding rating in the list which I relied on when I used this business. PS - work ticket was for Sterling Shoe&Leather Repair, not
&Luggage. Maybe that's why I couldn't find him on the BBB site. The very worst of a service business.

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.

I needed a

brass rivet placed on a strap for a small purse. Without the strap the purse was not really usable. I paid in advance--a larger fee than I thought the service was worth--then went back a week later. The shop is a mess--you can barely walk with all the mismatched shoes, wrappers, trash strewn about. The workman could not find the strap, no surprise given the state of the shop. At first he didn't remember what I had left, then after much discussion he did remember, and after a 20 minute

found the strap. Would never go back. I would have been crushed if he'd lost an expensive pair of shoes.

Got name off Angie's List and went to store, was greeted in friendly fashion. Man looked at my shoe, told me what he would do and said it would cost $25.00, ready next day. When I returned, shoes were polished, looking better than they have in a very long time. Damaged shoe is in great order. Would definitely go here again if needed.

I contacted the shop owners and spoke with the wife (I'm so sorry, but I've forgotten her name.). I told her that we lived in

State and would like to ship a pair of cowboy boots to their shop to be reconditioned...resole, add new heel, and whatever else might need done. She told me that it wouldn't be a problem. She said they might not get to them for a week or two. I told her that was not an issue. We could wait.
I mailed the boots, and received a call back from the shop owner about two weeks later saying the boots were ready to ship, and that I could make payment over the phone at that time. I gave her my credit card number, and the boots arrived within 7 days.
My husband is very pleased with the work that was done on his boots at

, TX. He's had these boots for 20+ years and has had them resoled and reconditioned before, but never to this extent. He also said that the price was excellent, especially for the quality of work done. Needless to say, we will recommend and reuse this shop again.

We originally requested they attempt to salvage the leather straps on the bag, but indicated they could replace them if necessary. They felt they should be replaced and quoted a pre-paid price of approximately $16 which we paid. When we went to use the bag one of the straps broke.
We returned the bag, only to be told, the $16 would have been $40.95 if new straps were used. The straps are 2" by 1/2" (4). We we objected to the price and the fact they made the decision to use the old straps, they lowered the price to $30.95. When we stated we wanted to think about it, they reversed course on the discount.
We have been long time customers of this company and felt like they were trying to take advantage of us.

Soles were replaced on shoes but after getting home I found that the sole at the toes was not even glued back onto the shoe. Also, leather upper was scuffed and returned to me in worse condition than when I dropped it off. I would have been happy to pay top dollar for professional service, but this result was unacceptable and I'm taking all future business elsewhere.

did a wonderful job with my son's shoe repair. I dropped them off this morning and the shoes were ready by noon. He did an excellent job and reasonably priced! I would highly recommend his shoe repair services.

The woman who helped me (I assume the owner) did a great job fixing the heels of my shoes. She made them slightly larger which now gives me more support. She had me tell her when I wanted to pick them up (I said I'd come back exactly one week later). The shoes were ready, cleaned up and the cost was only $8! I would have never found or used this place without reading from others on Angie's List - glad I did!
