The mighty shoe has been called the carriage to the foot, a fashion-forward receptacle of phalanges, and the durable bread between our butter heels and bacon sidewalk. Fix up your walkers with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 toward shoe-repair services and shoe or Ugg-boot cleaning at Bob's Shoe Repair in Wayzata.
Bob Fisher, a third-generation shoe repairman, has saved soles, healed heels, and brightened boots for more than four decades. Bob, along with son Jeremy, fixes footwear of all makes, models, and blood types, offering up heel replacement (normally $12.50–$25.50), shines (normally $6.50–$11.50), stretching of leather and vinyl shoes ($8/width, $12.50/length), shoe patching ($6.50+), and more. Should someone step on newly-bought blue-suede shoes ($6.50), boots ($9.50), or Ugg boots ($35–$45), Bob can spiff them up with a scrub down that leaves them so clean they'll strike unless their wearers learn to walk on their hands. Prices listed are normal costs; to get an exact figure, bring your footwear into Bob's Shoe Repair for an estimate.
