    They're two weeks out, but I dropped off my dress shoes to get new heels/soles put on them. The price was reasonable, and a free polish is included. I haven't received them back yet, but am looking forward to seeing how they look!

    OMG! They brought my boots back from the dead. My soles had fallen off. Now, they look and feel fantastic. So much better than buying a new pair. Jessica is amazing! Check these out:

    They are SO super nice and helpful. I really needed a little sweetness after suffering the "Me first" rudeness this past year. But they were very nice. I got a pair of UGGs my foot can't even get all the way in so I'm having them stretched. The $25 price seemed reasonable to me too.

    It's been months ago and should have written a review then but .... this is a GREAT shop! They re-soled a pair of much-loved pair of boots that I've probably had for 15 years. I have no doubt they'll go another 15. Just a great shop with reasonable prices.

    Jessica, the lead person and cobbler (shoe repairer) at Derek's is fantastic. She is extremely knowleadgable about shoes & shoe repair, and a highly skilled craftsperson. She does excellent work and provides great and personable customer. I highly recommend Jessica and Derek's!!
