Al Jek is the best skate shop hands down! My son's friends encouraged us to go there and now its the ONLY place we go.He not only has the best prices and top boards but he's a truly honest person that will ask you questions about your experience with skating to ensure your getting the right board(especially for parents trying to surprise there kids) I guarantee once you go there it will be your #1skate shop too, even if you move to bfe its worth the drive
This man is an artist/craftsman I've come here for years, originally having him rebalance dance shoes. He'd even move the heels when necessary. He would shorten them sometimes It made the world of difference. I've never gone to any other shoe repair shops where the workmanship even came close.
I came into the store looking for comfortable walking shoes, not having any idea on brands. Matt was amazing. He was very helpful and patient with me in selecting the best shoes for my flat feet.
