Who does the best work with stacked leather heels on mens shoes? In other words, who can repair nice (and expensive) dress shoes without ruining them?

I've had great shines from the Shoe Doctor @ Compuware (hallway running E from main lobby), and while there I've heard customers rave about their repairs. That said, I've never had the repair you describe.

Not the same without Dominic's on Griswold near the United Way offices.

Best shine in town, always crowded but kept 3,4 chairs going until about 1989.

Death by business casual. No need to shine Doc Martens....

I don't mean to spoil this Detroit thread, but the gentleman who runs A Moore Shoe Hospital at Southfield & Evergreen in Southfield did a great job for me on short notice. I really endorse the joint.

Southfield & Evergreen? Don't both of those roads run parallel?

I also like the young shoemaker on the northwest corner of Van Born and Pelham on the west-side, I think it is Dearborn Heights at that point, but Allen Park and Taylor all crash together there, too.

His shop is one street east on the north side of Van Born...and does decent repairs...along with retail, bought some boots from his that are great. He is getting much better, and I hope to have him stay in business long enough to achieve craftsman status.
