I have relied on Unique Shoe Repairs to service my shoes and shirts for several years now, in which time I have also had watch straps and bags repaired, hip flasks engraved and keys cut by them. Jem, the owner, offers a great value service, and is a friendly, genuine chap - I'll be sad to see him leave Sicilian Avenue.
27/06/2015 I've been taking my Chelsea boots and my partners heels to Unique Shoe Repairs for the purpose of replacing the leather soles and heels for a few years because of good service. The value in price for the quality of work does not compare to the competition the result of which is worth the visit.
12/4/2015 Always pop in to Unique Shoe Repairs to have my heels re-heeled, husband's work shoes re-soled, and my watch battery replaced. The guy who works there is so nice, he once let me pay for my order the day AFTER, since I didn't have any cash and he had a minimum on card payments. I mean, you can't get better service than that. Having been to one too many rude and disappointing Timpsons across London, it was a relief to find a place that I can return to again and again for my well-worn shoes (that's what London does to you - the pavements ruin your shoes!).
28/11/2012 Near my work, so I am forever having them cut me new keys. They are always very pleasant, polite and quick. I usually ask if I can wait in the shop while they cut my keys, and this has never been problem. Keys with a smile, in 5 minutes, and at a very reasonable rate.
03/02/12 I've worked in London a long time and been to a lot of shoe repairs and not found one that meets my standers until I went to Unique Shoe Repairs. The guys that work there are top blokes and can work wonders for your shoes.....
22/10/14 Great customer service, result and very reasonably priced - definitely coming back. I brought in a completely new pair of LK Bennett heels that needed a rubber sole (as it only had a very thin leather sole). Since they were completely new (and patent leather which can easily be visibly scratched/marked) I did not just want to bring them anywhere. I did a google search and found this shoe repair shop and I was very pleased with both the customer service and the result - not only did he show that he understood my concerns about the scratching or getting glue on the patent leather part, but the result was perfect.
14/05/2014 Tricky key cutting from a copied key, done in a flash and the key worked like a magic on the first go. A professional work. Worth a few yards extra walk from Holborn station. Highly recommended. (£4 @May 2014) Initially I tried Timpson nearby. The guy there was very friendly but the key didn't work and went back there for a couple of times (so, they cut 3 keys in total) but the 3rd one was still hardly reliable. Took the same key to Unique Shoe Repairs , and the solemn-looking gent did the job straight away, and this one works as good as my old copy. The shop is slightly hidden from the main street but worth the effort.
28/07/2015 Unique Shoe Repairs represent a dying breed of small business. The guys are amenable ; flexible and always helpful. Great Service. Long may that continue.
Top guy! very reasonable and fair service provided. Thank you and hope to see you again soon.
