Minas Shoe Repair is one of the best things that came to Manhattan. Located in the heart of the Financial District, Minas knows shoes from the Executive perspective. Surrounded by stores like Hermes, Tiffany's, and BMW, Minas knows the style of the discerning gentleman. Having custom designed shoes for some of the world's most scrutinous customers, I found Minas through a recommendation from a friend. I brought him my favored pair of Allen Edmonds shoes that were discontinued. Thinking I had to throw them out, I came to Minas for a second opinion and, like a good doctor, he performed some magic on my shoes that turned my tired, worn, but loved shoes into something you could almost display in a storefront. He is THAT good! He basically completely reconstructed the shoe from scratch, replacing all of the worn, thin leather and completely reconditioning and polishing my shoes to the point where they are as good as new but actually BETTER THAN NEW since they are already broken in and accustomed to my feet. Minas knows the art AND science of cobblery and I feel lucky to have discovered him.
Pros: Knows Shoes Inside and Out!
Cons: Financial District May Be a Trek for Some, But It's Worth The Trip!!
