It had been a long time, years, since I had been to Shoe Service Plus, my longtime favorite New York shoe repair shop, which I have raved about before to you guys. I had been living in San Francisco and just last year returned to living permanently in New York. I was surprised to find recently that the store has moved across the street and is now The Leather Spa.
In addition to its 55th Street location, there is now a location in The Plaza.
I am very happy to say that the new location is much more organised, with the upstairs for drop-offs and the downstairs for pick-ups. There is also a large supply of sprays and insoles.
The prices and policies are prominently displayed in the front, warning that cleaning, dying, stretching, storage and shoe repair all have their liabilities.
Here are some of the amazing collection of arches and insoles they have, with nice, neat little descriptions and prices. I love it!
Hurray for the new Leather Spa! It’s very expensive, but if you’ve got a pair of designer shoes you don’t trust to anyone else, take em here! I saw a woman dropping off numerous Louboutins and Prada when I dropped my humble Cole Haans off, and she said she is very happy with their service. And don’t forget to treat yourself to the proper insoles; it’s very important for your foot health!
