Ares Shoe Repair

2003 Best Shoe Repair

There are more than 70 shoe repair joints in Greater Boston; picking the finest involves a little legwork. Why this particular shop—and for a second year in a row? Armenian-born Mike Damirshian’s work is impeccable, especially at the prices he charges ($4 for a perfect shine, for instance). From the moment you walk in, you feel as if you’ve traveled back to a simpler time when shoes were made by hand and not machine.
