Shoe guru Giovanni—who sharpened his shoemaking skills in Calabria, a region renowned for its leatherwork—oversees a staff of seasoned shoe menders and leatherworkers at Giovanni D'Italia. Scuffed foot carriages gleam after a thorough polishing—men who choose the second option can prop their feet on desks or join high-kicking chorus lines to show off new rubber or leather soles and repaired heels ($45–$60). Female phalanges can sport sharp new boot heels ($18–$20) and solid soles ($40) for distinctive snow tracks. Additionally, run-down handbags can regain a like-new sheen through thorough cleaning and conditioning ($39–$50). Though not included in today's Groupon, Giovanni D'Italia's staff can happily revamp leather jackets, leather suitcases, or tiny sofas found in high-end dollhouses.
