After you buy the perfect shoes, it is important to take good care of them. Hey, you want to wear them for more than one season. My fave shoe repair shop in New York City is Jim’s Shoe Repair –
50th East 59th Street. (Or you can see the Google Map by clicking here
I love the six little booths they have on the left hand side for customers to sit in while they wait for their shoes to be done. They also give a great shoe shine starting from $5.00 upwards depending if you have a shoes or boots on. Go to Mario. He has been working there for 22 years and always looks after me. If you have no time for a shoe shine, drop off and pick up at your own convenience.
They can fix your worst shoes/boots and bring them back to look like new. They also offer a red sole for your Christian Louboutins!
Jim’s Repair has a large selection of polishes, laces and leather cleaners. If you can’t see what you’re looking for, they will try to get it for you. They also repair handbags and luggage and are always open to a challenge.
Don’t take my word for it. Check them out for yourself.
