Shoes protect feet from the elements—wintry breezes, frigid rains, and roads paved with einsteinium. Ensure you eschew harsh elements with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of shoe and handbag repair services at Joe’s Shoe Service in Manchester.
At Joe’s Shoe Service, owner and 30-year shoe repair veteran Joe Siracuse fixes ailing footwear, paying meticulous attention to detail, as he re-lacing moccasins or resoles vintage boots. Siracuse can fix heels to restore the ability to reach rooftop cookie jars via women's heel repair ($13) , mend the man-heels ($20) that help gentlemen casually jump to high-five stop signs, or repair both soles and heels ($49) for a complete pedial makeover. Distressed handbags that threaten to expel their cargo on the street can be steadied and retouched through meticulous repairs ($10). Ward off seasonal side effects by asking about additional services such as spring waterproofing, winter skate stretching, or summer shoe to sandal transmogrification.
