The workers were very knowledgeble of my needs and were able to salvage a pair of work shoes that I would have otherwise thrown out. They were great!

I agree with the last reviewer. Unless you don't mind having your shoes destroyed, avoid at all costs. These guys have been losing a lot of business lately and had to resort to f...

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/19/2013

Was very impressed with the speed with which my shoes were repaired (1 day) and with the helpfulness of the staff (Perci). Though I would not describe the prices there as cheap, I feel the quality of the repair is worth what they charge. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/11/2012

Hi, I want to thank Percy for doing a great job on my black leather bag. I needed a new shoulder strap and Percy duplicated the old strap. Wow, the bag looks like new and since the bag is my travel bag, I looked good wherever I went. Thank you, Percy. more

People said it couldn't be done 5/26/2012

Much loved and badly worn Birkenstocks needed new soles and a reengineering of the cork undersole. And they did it! Now I have a like-new pair of B'stocks that are already broken in. Kudis to Percy and crew. more

Home Run Every Time 5/24/2012

The nice folks at this location are always friendly, accommodating, truly helpful and genuinely enthused about satisfying my picky needs. It's like working with a hometown cobbler who keeps up with the latest innovations in the biz. Recently brought in an expensive white leather handbag that had begun to fade yellowish, asking if they could return it to its original beauty. They under promised (it will look good, requires dye, may not be perfect) and over delivered (it's BETTER than the original ever looked, and yet oh-so-natural looking). Par for the course. Have been bringing 10-15 pairs of shoes and boots a year here for a decade - you couldn't get me to try someone else because they've never failed to be timely, honest and high quality. Thanks, guys! more

Great Work on my Husband's Shoes 5/10/2012

VERY nice work done on my husband's expensive business shoes - heels, soles, refurbish leather. They look fabulous !!! Percy helped me and he was very good. I recommend using them for all men's shoe needs !!! more

Avoid at all costs 3/16/2012

I agree with the last reviewer. Unless you don't mind having your shoes destroyed, avoid at all costs. These guys have been losing a lot of business lately and had to resort to flying their adds in a bid to get it back. Snotty manager who won't take responsibility for really bad work. Be warned. more

Worst experience ever. 3/7/2012

I took a pair of my AGL flats to the houston shoe hospital on Chimney Rock. The soles had worn down and I wanted them replaced. I got my shoes back a week later and the soft napa leather was shredded! The upper edges of the binding were eaten away, exposing the elastic and circular pieces of the inside leather were gone. They appeared to have been chewed away by mice or rats. I learned from the manager (who assumed no responsibility for the damages) that they actually send their shoes off to a warehouse somewhere to get the work done. I was extremely uncomfortable and disappointed in learning this fact. Unfortunately my husband had picked them up without looking them over carefully and had already paid. I brought them back promptly and told them and they offered to repair the upper part of the binding with calfskin but not the circles that had been eaten away on the inside and I did not receive a refund. I will never go back there and leave my beloved shoes in the negligent hands of such a poorly managed establishment. I'm just glad I didn't bring in my prized croc-skin boots, as I'm sure that would have ended in some sort of disaster. And I agree with one of the other reviewers: if these guys could be given a negative rating, I would put it as low as possible. If you love your shoes, don't take them here. more

Superb 2/25/2012

Superb job with new heel taps on my winter boots & heels more

Thankful for Jose... 9/28/2011

I love love to go to the shoe hospital on kirby to get my very very expensive shoe collections serviced by jose he is very kind and knows exactly what he is doing.I was very skeptical going to a different location since i was used to go to the location on chimney rock where there was a young girl who always helped me and made me feel very comfortable by explaining everything that my shoes needed at a great price she no longer works there and that other guy there made me very uncomfortable by staring and trying to flirt with me everytime i went there so i stopped going untill i found jose on kirby ....thanks jose for your Great service you have provided! more

SIMPLY AMAZING!!! 9/20/2011

Before going to the Houston Shoe Hospital off Kirby, I was always a bit skeptical as to how well shoes can be repaired; however my outlook has all changed. Basically, I damaged the toe areas (actually cut through the brown leather) on my new wingtip work shoes within only a couple weeks of use. They cost me about a couple hundy, so I really didn more

Only place to take shoes to be repaired. 9/18/2011

The Houston Shoe Hospital on Kirby knows how to repair shoes. Their shoe doctors will take shoes and return them to look like they are brand new. The formula of shoe polish that they use gives the shoes a shine that would make the Marine Corp proud. more

This is THE place to go for five-star shoe repairs! 9/14/2011

I love, love, LOVE the Houston Shoe Hospital!!! It is absolutely THE BEST place to go in Houston and beyond for expert shoe and boot service and repair. Shoe surgeons Jose and Jeremy are quick to diagnose what is ailing your fave footwear, and the post-op is always AMAZING!!! I have been a totally satisfied customer for more than 20 years! Trust me, these guys are the BOMB!!!! more

BEST SHOE CARE IN H-TOWN 9/9/2011

Recently I took my brand new Christian Louboutin's in for some sole grips. I hesitated to get them because I did not want my red bottoms a different color. When I returned to pickup my red bottoms, they had red sole grips which matched my Christian Louboutin's perferctly. This was a great surprize. The guys there are very nice and try their best to make you satisfied with your service. more

Best Shoe Hospital in Houston! 6/17/2011

The folks at Houston Shoe Hospital at Kirby and Bissonnet are the greatest, and the quality of their shoe repair is the best.The staff here are shoe smart, leather smart and courteous. They know how to keep my shoes performing and looking fabulous. When I buy shoes, particularly heels I now take them to HSH and they place protective soles and tips on them and they are good to go, providing a much longer life to the shoes. Walking on concrete, pavement etc can really beat up the soles of shoes. Keep in mind if your shoes or a strap on your briefcase needs a fix, these are the folks to do handle it. They are resourceful and know how to deal with high end and designer shoes. Thank you HSH for keeping my shoes looking polished and professional! 5 STARs more

I love this place! 5/6/2011

I love this place! The staff is always courteous and professional, but Jason is the man! He is super knowledgeable about high end desgner shoes and makes great recommendations for extending the life of them. I'd bring him my Manolos anytime! more
