Best Shoe Repair


Sometimes you have to wear out your shoe leather in the hunt for the best spot. A friend of ours had a broken shank on her new platforms. Despairing, she took them to North 11th Shoe Repair, a shop tucked out of the way in Williamsburg. The shoe was fixed in one day for only $30. The cobbler is a master craftsman and a good deal: No frills, just cobbling is how our friend put it. (We think it would make a good T-shirt slogan, too). The shop is on the third floor of a building on North 11th between Berry and Wythego up the stairs, through a door, and down a hallway. And its open early on weekdays, at 8 a.m., so if you have a mangled pair of boots you can drop them off on your way to work and hopefully pick them up after. And if youve got other leather goods, such as bags, in need of attention, this is the place. 118 North 11th Street, Brooklyn, 718-599-7463 (11211)
