service is perfection & flawless

This shoe repair service is perfection. I won't go anywhere else; they take great care of my precious shoes, and always give them back to me in a flawless condition, also they were able to fix the zipper on my favorite purse ( I also gave him the green light to bring it back to life) and I was amazed with the job that they did. Amazing work and amazing prices with excellent customer service.

Now I know why...

I've had a series of bad experiences with shoe repair places. Though theoretically "fixed" my shoes never seem to come back as good as before -- the heels are sloppy or the toe shape is not the same...



My friend in which she?s a fan of model shoe renew and she recommended this place, and I will never take my shoes anywhere else again (Now I know why). They totally overhauled my favorite boots that were pretty trashed - the leather was all scraped up, I had worn them around for a day without realizing one of the heel tips had fallen off, I had worn the sole at the toe tips almost through the leather. Now they look brand new again. They take obvious pride in their work and are worth every penny.

Rude and damaging

A botched repair followed by this experience:
The man I spoke to insisted that it would cost me another $20. He also insisted in one track of rationale that there was no relationship between the new problem and the broken insole, that it was a problem of the shoe design (though this was entirely new damage that developed after they 'repaired' the boots) and then insisted that the insole had not been broken by them. He said ""why would I break it? How would I break it?!"" ""tell me how I would do such a thing?!"". I was unable to tell him how he would break the insole. I do not know how to repair shoes. That is why I go to a shop. I suggested he fix the problem for free and I would let it go. But he would not -- claiming things I did not fully understand.

Fine I said, both angry and confused, and left.

My boots are badly damaged and I am out $45 and have basically been called a liar and yelled at in public. I suggest you avoid the aggravation and send your shoes back to the manufacturer for repairs.
