Best of Boston

2013 Best Shoe Repair

Rinaldi’s Park Square

One of the best things about Boston is its walkability. The downside, however, is our oft-abused footwear. So when the insoles of our beloved boots begin to wear and the heel caps of our oxfords start to disintegrate, we lug them to this small shop in the Park Square building, where they’re consistently refurbished to good as new—just in time to hit the pavement again.
