About Us


Quite simply, our goal is to 'wow' you with over-and-above service and exceptional craftsmanship. Each member of our team works with one goal in mind: to make your day!

JOHN | Owner/Cobbler

When you walk through our doors, you'll may be welcomed at the counter by John, part-owner and one of our cobblers. He'll greet you with a smile and a wealth of knowledge from our cobbler team.

JANET | Operations/Administration

If John is already serving a customer, you may be greeted by Janet. Chances are she will offer you a cup of coffee, and invite you to have a seat in our reading area while we take care of your needs. You can sit and listen to music from the 40's & 50's, The Crooners, Louie Armstrong and many more on our Wurlizter Jukebox.

ACE | Master Craftsmen

Peek in the back of the shop, and you'll find Ace, our master cobbler at work on projects ranging from sole/heel replacement to hockey equipment to leather repair. He may have tools in hand, but always has a moment to answer your questions or give a friendly wave.

THE SHOE SHINE GUYS | Mobile Service

Drive around metro Detroit for very long, and you're bound to see a truck from our sister company, The Shoe Shine Guys. John & Bob spend their days on the road, providing mobile shoe shine and repair services to offices throughout southeast Michigan.
