The folks at Bennie's do a super job on shoe repairs of all kinds at a reasonable price. They are open 7 days a week, what a plus!
I've been going here for years to get my shoes fixed. Solid customer service, they always say hello when I walk in the door and are honest about what they can do with my shoes. I've had both shoes and boots polished, soles replaced, etc. and they always look fabulous and like new! I've also bought my husband a few pairs of shoes - excellent prices and even better advice. Reasonable prices, excellent work!!
I had the heels and 1/2 the soles of my Alan Edmunds Park Avenue shoes replaced at Bennie's. The service was friendly, the repair price was reasonable, and the turnaround time was excellent. I willr return to Bennie's Shoes the next time that my wife or I need our shoes repaired.
I purchased a Bennie's Shoes gift certificate at a charity golf event. Thank you Bennie's for your very nice donation. On my first visit I purchased a very nice pair of Allen Edmonds at a really nice price. The sales person was very friendly and helpful.
He took the time to measure my foot and help me find the correct size and style.
I left Bennie's shoes with a smile on my face.
On my second visit I decided to let Bennie's Shoes repair a few of my favorite shoes.
On my old Cole Haan loafers, they replace the soles and heels at a great price and they looked like new. On my wifes boots they repaired just the heels and polished the leather. My wife was very pleased on how her old boots looked like new again.
I have been back a few more times since my first visit, I can see why Bennie's Shoes has been in Atlanta for over hundred years. Great service and prices.
I trusted them with 4 very expensive shoes to have the red vibram soles added.
Bennie's Shoes staff was great. Very professional and nice. Returned 2 days later came back to pick up my shoes. WOW! All four pair of my new shoes looked great with the red vibram soles. Thank you Saks 5th Ave for sending me to Bennie's Shoes.
I have finally found a shoe repair shop I can trust here in Atlanta. Bennie's also has a very good shine person who does excellent work.
I wish I could give this place more than 5 stars.
My favorite pair of Diors was ably repaired at an affordable price at Bennie's Shoes.
It was difficult for me to entrust my favorite Diors to a shoe repair shop to replace the heels. Very difficult. Brian -- one of the owners of Bennies -- looked over my special shoes and gave me his assessment of what needed to be done in a friendly low-key manner. He put me at ease. And he promised me that the repairs would be done while I waited. I walked over to the Michaels in the small shopping plaza where Bennie's Shoes is located. Twenty minutes later Brian had my Diors ready for me at the counter. Everything looks good. The price was right. And I had no difficulty in communicating with any of the staff at Bennie's Shoes. Communication is a big problem at other woman's shoe repair places that I have frequented in Buckhead previously. Kudos to Bennie's Shoes.

Consumers often talk about how phenomenal customer service was back in the day. At Bennie’s Shoes, they resent that. As you open the door, the aroma of shoe polish greets you like a firm handshake. Located in Buckhead Crossings, Bennie’s has been around for over 100 years, fixing men and women’s shoes the “right” way. The cobblers, dressed like sartorial samurais, all have over 40 years of experience – each. Most, the sons and nephews of retired cobblers, speak about their craft with passion and enthusiasm. The workstation is comprised with machines older than the men who operate them. A pleasant greeting is a minor aspect of good customer service. A quality job, honesty assessments, and strenuous solutions instead of quick fixes summarize the service you’ll receive at this Georgia gem. If you care about your shoes, you’ll take them to Bennie’s.

I took my father last week into Bennies Shoes. He is a WWII vet and a real hero in my eyes. He has trouble walking, so his knees are just about done. God bless this 91 year old man.
I brought my father into Bennies to find a nice pair of dress shoes he can wear to Church on Sundays. The saleman (Matt) suggested a nice pair of Florsheim dress shoes with a velcro strap. Matt also got on his hands and knees and help my father get his old shoes off and new ones on. He did this about a dozen times until he found a pair of shoes that felt great. Thank You Matt for treating my father with respect.
I also found for myself a new pair of Cole Haan with the Nike Air inside on sale. Gotta love that Nike Air Cole Haans.
I can see why Bennie's Shoes has been in Atlanta since 1909.

The absolute worst, rudest, and most angry service I have experienced in years! I went into the store last week looking for a pair of AE Peyton's that were advertised. They did not have any in stock, but the salesman made a big pitch to bring in one of my older pair of AE's and give their re-crafting service a try for $90, which he said was way better than AE's. I went in this afternoon with a pair of old AE's wingtips for re-crafting. I encountered a man with a moustache who took my shoes, looked the over and just sneered at them. At first, he said that there was no way that they could be AE's. Another associate looked at them and confirmed that they were, in fact, AE's; which, of course, was obvious. He then said that they had been so poorly repaired that it would cost $100 or more to re-craft them. I said fine, but stated that I was quoted a price of $90. I paid him $100 and asked him their work was guaranteed. The guy just flipped. He stated that if I was unhappy with their work, too bad, that I would never get my money back. He then literally leaned over the counter and stated quite aggressively that no one in the store would have ever quoted a price of $90 to me (implying that I was a liar) and he literally grabbed one of the shoes out of my hand turned it over and started jabbing it in my facing pointing to the apparently poor prior repair work. I responded that I did not think that being yelled at or being abusive was a particularly effective customer service strategy and requested an immediate refund. He gave me my money back and then, I kid you not, he again grabbed one of the shoes out of my hand. At this point I had had enough and I told him in clear terms to let go of my shoes and then I departed. If the store manger or the owner of the store reads this, I ask him or her to contact me via YELP. An apology is expected.
The guys at Bennie's are great. They actually told me I was wearing the wrong size shoe, then proved it to me. My feet feel so much better now tha i am wearing the correct size. Louie spent so much time with me. I got 3 pairs. They repair shoes there too. I overheard thgeir customers talking about how good their repairs were too! When I complained about the traffic, they told me I could order them from the web as well, that they had a website. I won't go anywhere else now that I've found Bennie's Shoes. Their prices were very good too!
I have shopped at Bennie's for over 20 years. The staff is prompt, knowledgeable, friendly and the selections, service and down home feel are the best in the city. 90+% of the shoes I own have come from Bennie's. If I could change one thing it would be longer evening hours.

Money has been getting tight lately so I have quit shopping at those overprice Malls and started to bargin hunt. Bennie's Shoes is a great place to find 1st quality shoes at great discount prices. Let me say this, most of what Bennie's Shoes carries is all current styles. Very few close-outs. I visited Bennie's this past Saturday and boy were they busy. I guess in this crazy market, the discount stores really look good.
I found a pair of men's Clark casual shoes for $39.95 ($129.95 retail). I also found a pair of dress Rockports for $79.95 ($110.00 retail). I just love the fact that I am saving money on name brands than spending money for some off brand I never heard of. My brother did buy a pair of Sebago shoes for only $49.95 (it was on a special mark-down table).
I will be back this weekend to pick up a pair of Cole Haans they had on sale for $99.95 ($145.00 retail).
In these most difficult times, we all must learn to become a smarter shopper.

ILOVE THIS PLACE!!!! The shoe repair is fantastic. If you go, see Jim. I only wear Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik & Prada shoes. He is the only person in town....the southeast for that matter that can do the repairs on my shoes. He has been fixing shoes forever and I've never had a problem, neither has any of my friends. Go see Bennie's for all your repairs. Also, they are so nice and friendly. Service is outstanding!!

Bennie's ruined a pair of my brand new designer shoes. They ripped the insole while putting rubber on the bottoms, and then they refused to refund my money for the work that was done (you have to pay ahead of time). They were unapologetic and rude, and they said they'd rather lose a customer than give me a refund. There are countless shoes repair places in Atlanta; avoid this one.

I have been shopping with Bennie's Shoes since I first moved to Atlanta in 1988. The service is with out question the best (the dept. stores could learn from Bennie's). I saw one of the reviews mention that Bennie's has last years styles. This is not true. All Bennie's shoes carries is up to date styles. I was in Bennie's of Norcross last week and saw all the new styles they received from Allen Edmond (2008) and Cole Haan(2008). I have never written a review before, but since the people at Bennie's have been so nice to me and my father (who is 87 years old and is treated like a king when he comes into Bennie's) I thought I should set the record straight that they carry nothing but current styles not last years close-outs. Even if Neil Boortz talks about how much he loves Bennie's shoes, I will still go in there.

As a kid growing up in Atlanta, my parents would take me to the old Broadview Plaza Shopping Center on Piedmont, to Bennie's for school shoes. It was always a pair of Bass Weejun's. When I grew up, I would occasionaly stop in, and pick up a couple of pairs. And yes the service is very good. And the prices are also. But as I became more sophisticated, the styles seemed rather dated. And they are. Most of the inventory is last years styles, at good prices. There is certainly nothing wrong with that.
