Welcome to West Racine Shoe Service! There are so many reasons to have your shoes and leather goods repaired. First , you may have a favorite pair that you will never find again. Next, you may have hard to fit feet and comfort is important to you. Also you may be concerned where all of our throw aways are ending up and repairing keeps them out of our landfills. The cost of shoes has increased and you can save money by repairing vs. buying new. Some people have never heard of repairing shoes, purses, coats and we invite those of you who have never tried it to see what can be done with that old pair of favorites to make them like new! We have been in this business for over 30 years and have seen many changes throughout the years. Our goal is that you are not only satisfied but that you are pleased with the work done on your items.
"You can walk on our reputation!"
