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.


Shoe Repairing reviews in Hanover


They were supposed to repair the handle rivets on an expensive Bosca leather briefcase.
They took 5 weeks to replace the rivets at a cost of $110.00.
Two months later the new rivets failed and broke.This place might have once (a long time ago) been good, but they
are not any more.
Go someplace else!


Very professional! Explained all charges and time frame for repair.
My only concern, they made me pay for services before work was performed. I don't personally like that, but everything turned out great! Would definitely use them again!

A charm school this shop is not but the work that I have had done (repeat customer - I keep going back for more) is good. I have always had a very clear understanding of what they would do with the shoes so I have not been disappointed. I tend to believe that if a shop does not say they will do something I do not expect it to be done. The shop carries a nice inventory of shoe care products and laces so it is nice to have a local spot to be able to see polish colors first hand rather than buying on-line and hoping for a match.

They do excellent work. The strap on the hand bag was repaired so well that I couldn't tell which of the straps had been fixed, and at first, neither could the owner himself even though he had done the repairs.
This is a well established business with an excellent reputation. It has new owners who are carrying on the excellent work for which the shop is known for!
The owners are very pleasant and customer friendly. I highly recommend

I dropped off boots to have leather that had separated from soles at seam reinforced and re-stitched. Boots were ready in two days.

provided quick, personable and expert service at a very reasonable price.

Walked in expecting to leave for later pickup. Immediate attention from service personnel who looked at my needed repair and said :Got a minute?". Repair done quickly at reasonable price. Will definitely return for any future needs ... full-service shoe shop. Highly recommend.


I have used

for several years and have always been pleased with the results. They have always offered helpful advice (such as' "these shoes are so far gone it wouldn't be worth trying to repair them UNLESS you are completely in love with them.") I feel that they are honest and very competent in what they do. Sometimes some of the staff can be a bit brusque but I can forgive that because they do such a good job with the shoes.
(Note that their old address is still on this posting. They are still located in Fairport, but now on N.Main St. just a little north of the RR tracks.)
