Shoes work hard all day to support the arches, defend against rocks, and devastate kickballs without any sign of remorse. Prepare your feet for a victory lap with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of shoe, handbag, and accessory repairs at Grove Shoe Repair and Orthopedic Lab in Elk Grove Village.
The versatile cobblers at Grove Shoe Repair and Orthopedic Lab have been mending shoes, handbags, and other leather objects for more than 40 years. Repair services for women's shoes range from replacing the bottoms of high heels ($10–$15) to restoring leather soles ($35) to reducing ruby slippers' teleportation abilities. Men's shoes can undergo a full heel replacement ($25) or get a thin, protective sole implant ($25). Once Birkenstocks' cork footbeds no longer float enough to play battleships with in the bathtub, Grove Shoe Repair can restore them ($85) or their buckles ($8 each) using authentic Birkenstock materials. The store also contains a full-service orthopedic lab, where trained technicians craft custom orthopedic inserts ($75 for a half-inch), with or without a doctor's prescription.
Grove Shoe Repair's leather-darning expertise extends beyond shoes, with additional services ranging from re-lacing baseball-glove fingers ($25–$35) and webs ($25–$35) to repairing Gucci and Coach leather handbags and Texas Chainsaw Massacre's Leatherface.
