2001 Best Shoe Repair

Santacross Distinctive Shoe Service

Larger and cleaner than the average cobble shop, Santacross makes shoes better than new every time. No repair work—heel replacement, restitching, waterproofing—is beyond the ability of the affable, helpful employees. What’s more, they dole out morsels of wisdom on shoe care, and, in a pinch, will rush to fix any footwear without compromising the job’s quality. Another plus: punch cards for a free 10th repair.
