I've been going to Minas for years and they've worked on all types of my shoes-from boots-heels-flats- to sandals, and they always look like brand new after visiting Minas.


All reviews seem positive

The best not just downtown in the city! 3/17/2011

I've been going to Minas for years and they've worked on all types of my shoes-from boots-heels-flats- to sandals, and they always look like brand new after visiting Minas. more

Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous - I LOVE Mina 5/30/2009

Situation: Two Dolce and Gabbana heals that had both broken. I had been to many shoe repair places but to no avail. No ONE WOULD TOUCH THEM. They told me that they were unrepairable. I just couldn't believe it and as much as I paid for them, I wasn't taking ""no"" for an answer. So I scoured the internet looking for someone who would tell me ""yes, I can fix them!"" Pros: Best Repair of Top Designer's Shoes more

Fantastic Work! 4/22/2009

I had gotten some stains on one of my Marc Jacobs bags. I had no idea where to go and someone recommended Minas. Although it took about 2 weeks, they completely cleaned and recolored the whole bag to look like new! He actually hand painted/brushed on the color. I am so impressed with the way the bag looks. You can't even tell where it was stained! Pros: Excellent, high-quality work Cons: Wish they were open until 7! more

Magic touch of ""Minas"" 4/6/2009

Minas & all of his staff really know how to deal with all kind of shoes!! I brought a couple of my dance shoes last week to them for the very first time. The ankle straps of my shoes are way too long, need to be cut & re-stiches because my ankles are way to small. It took them only about 10 minutes to make them perfect! Pros: Fast, professional & friendly Cons: As far of their works....nothing!!! more

MIinas is THE BEST 3/14/2009

He's a real professional cobbler with a talented staff of workers. And he's one of the nicest men you will ever meet. What's not to like? So if you live in FiDi head for Mina's shop for superior shoe repair. If you don't live downtown, it's worth the trip to save your soul, pun intended. Pros: Expert service, terrific folks, near all subways Cons: None that I can see more

not the cheapest, but definitely the best 12/30/2008

I found a pair of Jimmy Choo knee highs that were too narrow at the instep (my left heel was sticking out a little bit) and too small at the shaft (the zippers only went mid-calf), but too beautiful to pass. I wouldn't have trusted them to just any cobbler, so I found Minas through this page. The old gentleman was very friendly and helpful. He took my measurements and I paid $100 for the stretching. They fitted perfectly when I tried them on one week later! Before I left, he also have them shined carefully. I was very, very happy. Pros: Got premium designer shoes? You can trust them to Minas. Cons: Pricy for just regular repair job. more

Best cobbler ever 7/1/2008

I love Minas (not Mina's) Shoe Repair so much that I created an account on Cityserach just to be able to sing their prasies. They do fantastic work, are quick and inexpensive. Other cobblers charge so much that you may as well buy a new pair of shoes. At Minas Shoe Repair, I can get a pair fixed for $10. Pros: excellent craftsmanship, inexpensive, fast turn-around, friendly family business Cons: They close at 6pm more

Best Shoe Repair in New York 5/23/2008

I worked in Lower Manhattan for 6 years and now work in Midtown - I did not know how great Mina's was till I got lazy and tried other cobblers closer to my new place of work. They do not even come close, in terms of attention to detail and quality of work. Mina's put Vibram soles (for traction) on my dress shoes but instead of simply slapping them on like other cobblers would, they trimmed down the original sole so that with the new soles, the profile of the shoe would be exactly the same as before. Other cobblers often don't even bother and you end up with clunky and thick shoes that can ruin an expensive look. Pros: expertise, workmanship, attention to detail more

Hands Down BEST Cobbler in New York 12/14/2007

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!! more

Best shoe reapir store in New York City 7/29/2007

Walking down the streets of New York City can be rough on your stillettos. With the golden touch of Minas shoe repair , when I break a heel, or have a broken strap on my shoe/sandals; I am able to have my shoes repaired and ready to take back on the streets of New York. Pros: service more

WOW 7/29/2007

I was so happy to learn i can buy high length boots!! I am pleasantly plump and I could never but higher length boots because my calfs were thicker than average but Minas has altered and or stretched boots I have bought according to my measurements. I have also had several shoes repaired here and they have done a fantastic job saving my loved ones! Highly reccomended for any kind of leather repair . Very friendly and this guy knows what he is doing. more

First Rate, Professional, and Very Talented Cobbler--HIGHLY Recommended 6/28/2007

One could spend a lifetime in search of a cobbler and never find one as good as Mina. For over 50 years he has studied and practiced shoe design, repair, and construction. If you are experiencing a pain in a certain part of your foot when wearing your favorite 4-inch stilettos, he not only can tell you why you are experiencing such pain, but can then reconstruct the shoe in such a way that those stilettos will feel like running sneakers. More importantly, he knows all of the top labels and how each house manufactures their shoes--Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Jimmy Choo---you name it, and he knows it, inside and out. They say that a sailor knows the face of his lover like he knows the open seas; Minas knows shoes like a sailor knows the seas. Pros: VERY talented; Educated in the field of cobblery; Professional and Friendly more

Minas brings the life back to ANY shoes... 6/8/2007

Minas are experts when it comes to shoe repair. I have taken shoes there which I have had for years which I simply love and they are able to work magic to restore them. I took in a pair of beaded silk espadrilles with hand woven straw rope soles which I purchased on Rodeo Drive. The shoes had since been discontinued, thus I could not simply replace them with a new pair. The silk was ripped on the sides and the soles were in disaray. Minas secured the sides with a snazzy leather strip and added a sole which protected the straw. They look amazing!! Why didn't the original designer think to do this!!! Pros: great service, knowledgable about the craft, and offers suggestions on maintenance of your shoes more

Best shoe repair in Manhattan! 5/31/2007

#1 shoe repair in NYC!!!! I've lived in NYC for 5 years now, and the years of walking on pavement has taken its toll on my beloved Stuart Weitzmans and Pradas. They have honestly performed magic on my shoes and brought them back to life! Pairs that I thought I would have to throw out have been resoled, recolored to match the hard to match avocado or ballet slipper shades, dents taken out of the point toe tip and now look brand new! The owners and staff are extremely friendly and they charge a fair price! Since I've started going here, I've brought them 10 pairs of shoes! They are the best! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Pros: They make your destroyed pair look new! more

THE place to get your shoes repaired!! 3/29/2007

This place is the Best!!!! They have replaced several heels on my Louboutins, Manolos and others... It's great because they have the actual heels from these stores so my shoes look like they never broke. And I have to mention that my dog loves eating my shoes and Minas the owner has worked magic!! I highly reccomend this place for any kind of leather repair they really do an outstanding job! Pros: anything is possible Cons: Custom work may take a little time more
