"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). ...more 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! "

Sample Shoe Repairs Reviews
"The manager was very helpful. I ordered
boots that were incorrect. They took them back and replaced them at no charge. Very nice, friendly and family owned business
"I took the 2 pairs of shoes into the shop. They gave me cost information on the spot. I was required to pay a 50% deposit. They take cash or checks only. The price doesn't include polishing. The cost seemed a bit steep but I had used another shoe repair shop in the past and wasn't satisfied with the results (sole gluing that didn't ...more last a month). Also, these were good quality shoes and the price to repair was a fraction of replacing them. I was able to pick up the shoes a few days later. "
"I have lived in Lafayette for two years and in that time I have taken at least two pairs of shoes, a couple of belts, and a few leather bags to
to have them fixed. One bag needed a zipper replaced and
worked to find the exact right color to match the leather. The also fixed the zipper on my favorite pair ...more of winter boats and replaced the sole in my favorite summer sandals. I'll be taking another pair of sandals into them next week now that the warm weather has finally hit.
also does alterations though they don't advertise the fact and that is a shame. I have taken two pairs of pants to
to get them hemmed and have tucks put in. They did a great job on both and I will definitely go to them for my future alteration needs.
The prices for alterations are a little higher than I'm used to but I have heard from friends that they are standard for the Lafayette area.
I have yet to find a problem with shoes, leather, zippers or pants that
can't fix. I think the business is family-run. They are great people and this is a great local business. "
for almost 10 years because the work is quality. Normally I wear through shoes pretty quickly, so I usually have the heels or the front part of the soles replaced when they wear down. I'm always happy with the work done and that I get to have a like-new pair of shoes.
"I needed some velcro replaced on a pair of leather sandals. I dropped them off, gave them my phone number, and was told that I should pick them up in 3 or 4 days, 4 days later, I returned to the store, and was told that they had to order the velcro, and I that should come back in 2 days. 2 days later, I returned and was told that they still hadn't ...more gotten around to it. I probably should have called ahead that time, but they could have called me to say the work still had not been done. The employee apologized and said that he would inform the owner. I told him that it didn't matter to me since I would never come back. So I took back my sandals and took them to a different shoe repair place.
"My rolling suitcase needed an outside pocket zipper replaced and my soft sided computer bag needed a hand strap reattached. I dropped off both pieces on Wednesday and picked them up 3 days later. The service was much faster than I expected and saved me from having to replace both pieces. I was thrilled with their work and wished I had found them ...more sooner.
Would highly recommend them! "
"It was great! I was unsure if they would be able to do it, since they were patent leather and I've never had shoes stretched before, but I would say they added half a size. Now, they fit very comfortably and I don't have to get rid of perfectly good shoes because they fit!
The cost was super cheap for them to repair very expensive shoes.
"The proprietor told me it would be a week for this small job. Not wanting to
around, I agreed. When I returned in a week, he was unable to find my shoes and said he would call me when he found them. I never received a call. I did try calling more than 20 times over the next two weeks and could never get anyone to answer the ...more phone. When I finally was able to return to the shop, he did have my shoes and did not charge me which was a nice gesture. Too much effort on my part for such a small repair. "
