It was Benjamin Franklin who famously quipped, "Opposable thumbs, shoes, and cookies for breakfast are the only things separating us from the animals." Keep your feet dignified with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of shoe-repair services at The Shoe Smith in Willimantic.
The Shoe Smith’s resident shoe healer, Jose Reyes, expertly fixes footwear and restores leather products to their original luster. Those tired of slipping every time they step onto a buttered elevator can overhaul pedial sheathes with the added traction of protective soles ($14.95 for women’s shoes; $20.75 for men’s shoes). Leather pumps battered from leaping over sidewalk cracks to ensure Mom’s safety rediscover like-new beginnings with restored heels and hides ($12.60), and worn men’s wing-tips return to normal elevations with repaired heels ($18). Birkenstock wearers can reclaim their stride with a full-sole replacement ($33) or replacement foot beds featuring deep heel cups and suede-lined cork that naturally contours to feet over time ($33).
Open since 1984, The Shoe Smith maintains a commitment to customer comfort by employing a board-certified pedorthist available to assist customers with unique needs. In addition to shoe-repair services, The Shoe Smith can also fit feet with custom orthotics and ease aches from diabetes, hammertoes, and Hammer Time with specialty footwear.
