I have a pair of Browning Featherweight(R) hunting boots that, after about 8 years of use, had the sole separate from one of the boots. I took the boots to a local shoe repair shop and they said the only way to repair them would be to completely replace the soles on both boots for $80.00, which would take a week to do. I said "no thanks" to this fix. I then took the boots to German Shoe Repair and the young man running the shop said he could repair the boot with the separated sole by re-cementing (under pressure) the sole back onto the boot and then resealing the sole/boot interface with a tough sealer. The cost was $9.00 and the young man did the work in 30 minutes...while I did some shopping in Maplewood Mall! The young man said the repair should last at least a year and will stand behind his work if it doesn't. I have since worn the boots hunting and also doing some heavy work taking out buckthorn with my brother. The repair is holding up just fine, so far. I highly recommend German Shoe Repair to anyone looking for an honest, customer service oriented shoe repair shop with reasonable prices and high quality work.
Plain amazing! Both craftsman ship, customer service, and price. First showed up after calling 5 minutes before with a broken zipper on a Tuesday when my bridal shower was Saturday. Every tailor said no way especially with the type of zipper (invisible) being broken. Not only did he immediately take and fix within a day but charged pennies. Then recently I had 7 pairs of custom flower girl shoes arrive that did not fit one girl. In a panic now 10 days away from wedding I ran down to ray. Not only did he take the work but literally did it in 15 minutes in front of me on the spot. 7 pairs of shoes!!! Again I showed up last minute with a reception dgown that Toms Tailors gave me estimate of $200 to remove 6" of tulle. Again he out did himself. Highly recommend not only his work, but his customer service. He has been in non stop communication and has bent over backwards to accommodate my *sometimes* bridezilla-ish requests. Because of my experience I will NEVER use another tailor mark my work. HIGHLY recommend!
I have had many zippers l, shoes and luggage repaired by Ray at Angel Shoe Repair & Tailoring over the past years . He even fixed my husband's boat cover . He is always very fast in his turn around and very courteous and friendly . His prices are very good comparing to others and quality of his work is top notch .
