Fast Feet Shoe Repair addresses shoe needs from sanitizing to frayed tongues and sole trouble by drawing upon experience accrued during nearly 30 years in business. Behind a counter reminiscent of a '50s diner, adroit shoe techs prop stilettos back to prominence with women’s heel repair ($9–$12), and replenish dye on satin ($30) or leather ($35+) hoof coverings. Discombobulated footwear flies back together with stitch work ($5+), and a shine ($5+) lets feet feel glamorous without dropkicking Faberge eggs. Women’s sole protection ($18+) keeps shoes sturdily stepping through pink clouds of sugar and spice, and men can protect their shoe-bottoms ($23+). Fast Feet also turns their talents to zipper, leather, luggage repair, and orthopedic work.
