The team here did a great job on 3 pairs of shoes and I was surprised that the price was so reasonable. Hard to find in NYC - Great job!


Arty does good work, but he charges way too much and it seems he charges different people different amounts for the same work. $35 is way too much for new heels on men's shoes. ...

Arties is great if you dont need your shoes back! 5/3/2012

I brought in my husbands fave loafers & asked to have them done in a rush (along with another pair of shoes)I went to pick them up on the day after they were to be ready ( BTW $8 cab ride) & they were NOT READY. They said they needed a few more days, I called...NOT READY! I called again ""cant find them, we will call you back"". They never called me back, I called...they had no idea what I was talking about, they said they would find them & call me back. They never called back, I called & told them if my shoes were not ready by the next day they could A. give me the shoes & my $60 deposit back or B. pay me for the shoes they had lost. They called the next AM to say come pick them up bc they were finally ready. I got to the store & they were NOT ready! I waited while they searched & found the shoes & then did a quick botched job for a $126. When I first came in I was told that of course I would be given a discount for my trouble & when it came time to pay a 1/2 hr latter the man who had told me that was gone & so was my discount! I WILL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN!!!! more

Great for replacing red soles but a little careless 4/24/2010

I brought in a pair of red Balencia sandals to be re-soled and they came back with black smudges, like they had been handled by someone with black polish on their hands. The red soles were unbeatable, but I was surprised at the carelessness in handling. Pros: red soles, kind service Cons: dirt more

the best in the business! 1/19/2010

it does not get better than Arties. Pros: they do what they say every time Cons: non for me more

Aces 8/5/2009

I don't know if $75 is a lot to spend to leather-resole a pair of Tony Lama cowboy boots, but I can't imagine a better job being done. Pros: Excellent work, craftsmanship Cons: Might be pricey -- I don't know more

Disappointed 5/18/2009

I dropped off my brand new never worn patent leather MBs to have a protective sole put on. That work was fine but somehow they managed to removed the color on the front of the shoe near the decorative buckle and now there is a silverish smudge looking area in the top front of my shoe that I have never even worn. Being professionals that work on many high end shoes I expected them to be very careful with brand new expensive shoes. I'm very dissapointed and upset. What's the point of quick service if you'll get your shoes back damaged. I rather wait a week and have a good job done. :( Pros: quick service Cons: Not careful with other parts of the shoe more

Best in NYC 12/9/2008

Arty is my hero! :) His work is fantastic, you will not find another shoe maker with his talent anywhere in the city. I took a pair of louboutins that were previously destroyed by another shoe maker (who painted the soles black :( ) Arty fixed them, they are like new. THANK YOU ARTY! ... On top of that the last word I would use to describe him is mean, he is such a nice guy, give respect, and you will get respect. For the quality of work, his prices are right... it is worth it when you pay upwards of $500 for shoes to make sure they are handled with care. Pros: *Red rubber soels!! more

Top-Quality Service and Craftsmanship 12/5/2008

I am an avid collector of shoes, and I don't trust them to anyone but Arty. I've been a customer for several years and I am always delighted with the quality of Arty's work. I tend to buy high-end shoes, so I bring them to Arty for rubber soles and taps (this really extends the life of shoes). Arty's craftsmanship is impeccable and the attention to detail truly amazing. Prices are very fair for the quality of work. In addition, the customer service is excellent! Arty is lovely - such a nice guy, and he truly cares about his customers and their shoes. Pros: Great service, impeccable work. Cons: None. more

You'd be crazy to take your business elsewere! Arty is the BEST 11/14/2008

Don't pay attention to anyone's negative reviews here. If you have a problem paying money to put the best possible sole or heel on your shoes with the best craftmanship possible then you truly don't care about your pair of Leboutin's, Dolce's, or Prada's and shouldn't be paying $800 and up. Pros: Arty, Arty, Arty - the man speaks for himself - his work is second to none Cons: The store is beat to heck, but it's a shoe-repair after all! more

INSANELY OVERPRICED!!!!!!!!!! 11/5/2008

I have recently visited Arty's to have 2 pairs of my shoes fixed (the leather soles were damaged and required rubber protection to be put on). more

Fast impeccable work! 10/22/2008

I came in during fashion week and needed my giuseppe-zanotti leather heels fixed before my flight left that day, and arty personally made sure everything was taken care of. these shoes were torn up all around the bottom, and the leather was riding up from the bottom parts of the shoe. they looked amazing when they finally finished, I was amazed and so grateful! Pros: they dye suedes and work fast Cons: none! more

Perfect repair and as great shine from Arty 10/5/2008

One of the great joys about visiting New York is the shoe shopping. I am a regular visitor to the city and usually don't leave without at least 2 or 3 new pairs. Last week I bought a beautiful pair of Dior Homme Chelsea boots and pulled a little too hard on the strap which broke. I went to City Search to find the best shoe service in town and read the recommendations for Arty's. more

The Connoisseur of SHOES! 9/9/2008

I was so happy with Arty's work on my giuseppe zanotti leather pump slides. more

Arty's shoe repair & soles for Pumps 8/12/2008

Arty's is amazing! I have Louboutins, Choos, all that I love and would not dream of wearing without Arty putting protective soles on them. more

Pure genius! 6/19/2008

There is nobody like Arty. I've been a regular customer since being referred by a salesperson at Jeffrey a few years ago. I never wear a new pair before Arty gets his hands on them and I bring them in for every fix and touch up. I have since heard sales people at Saks and Bergdorf recommend him and I'm delighted, because he is fabulous. Pros: Extraordinary work, caring customer service more


Arty's Shoe Service is excellent. I take all my shoes there for repair and shines. Arty himself is a great guy. Yes, he is somewhat of a character but that is what makes him great. He can be tough but thats what I want when I bring a $1000 pair of shoe to a shop. Make no mistakes about it, the guy knows what he is doing. Now all I need to find in NY is a good dentist more

Best shine in the city 5/17/2008

I went in for a shine recently. Everyone was out to lunch except Arty and he was terrific. He noticed a small scratch on my new Prada Shoes and fixed it. He was pleasant and funny. I was surprised to read some of the reviews because my experience was so positive. I will definitely return for more shines and repairs. Highly recommended. Pros: Service, atmosphere, expertise Cons: Store appearance more

No reason to deal with grumpy people 4/17/2008

I've taken shoes or boots to Arty's about six times. The work is fine, but I've witnessed yelling at employees and been berated myself. Who needs that! The shoe shine fellow is charming; Arty is not. I'd rather deal with nice people--this is a big city, and there are plenty of pleasant people out there. Some of them are even repairing shoes! I probably won't go back. more

Best Shoe Repair 4/16/2008

Arty's is simply the best in the business. Besides be the nicest guy around, he can repair virtually every type of shoe and restore them to their original condition - maybe even better than original condition! I recommend him to everyone! Pros: Brilliant Shoe Repair Cons: There's just one Arty! more
