Very nice person to talk to - gave me tips on maintaining my leather on my boots. Fast repair work - not to expensive.
I been conning to the shoe shop for about 10 years now. I am a shoe collector and collected many nice pairs of shoes through out the years. I generally keep them in good condition and polish and condition each of them after each ware. Some shoes were expensive and some purchased just because I like the style but I generally follow two rules. It must have a leather sole and the uppers must be leather and not pattent or suede. My first impression of the shoe shop was that it was busy and every time I go i glance around to see what else is in the shop. You can tell the quality of work by the shoes around. I saw some bespoke shoes as well as some high end women's shoes in the pile. Some including Christian lobutains, jimmy choos, guuchi and pradda and some very old shoes that people wanted to save. This brought a smile on my face today's shoes even the high end woman shoes are build so poorly and bringing them here will make then better or improve the life. I glanced around some more for men's shoes and well I did see lots of older men's shoes being restored. I aldo did see lots of faragamos and older cole hanns. I peeped In the special closed boxes to see what goodies I could find and some times you find some nice high end shoes or sometimes some very old shoe needed restoration.
Honestly if it was an option I would give this establishment 0 stars. I brought my well worn leather boots to get repaired at David's, he asked me to pay in advance ($130) which I didn't mind because usually small business owners are very reliable. He said they would be done in about a week and to come back the following Friday, my schedule is very busy so I came back a week after he told me to and said they would take another week. When I reminded him that they had already been here for 2 weeks he started to yell at me saying that I was a liar and that he was "dying" and I thought that my boots were more important than him being ill. Offended I asked if I could get my boots back and a refund and he told me that my boots were at a different location. I asked where I could go pick them up and he scoffed and said that he didn't know. Now I don't know if I am getting my boots back and I'm down 130 bucks, do not trust this man he will scam you and will make you feel guilty when it was truly his fault. If you want to be called "the most inhumane person he has ever met" and get yelled at by a crazed middle aged man be my guest.
I just visited the shop to ask about A repair, I found the owner surly and uncommunicative. He declined to help me but wouldn't tell me specifically why he wouldn't . I won't be returning
