Shoe repair in Zurich

Have a pair of favorite shoes that needs some help with the sole.

Is there a place you'd recommend in Zurich

Re: Shoe repair in Zurich

I take mine to Mister Minit - Querstrasse 6, Oerlikon. He does a good job and isn't expensive.

Re: Shoe repair in Zurich

Thank you for the suggestion.
I visited and they could only handle 1 of the shoes, apparently the other shoe is beyond their (or the shoe's) ability to be fixed.

SO --- I'm wondering, is there a more advanced location to take this shoe to?

I really want to give it another try to see if it can be fixed before I say goodbye to it.

Search for a Schuhmacher: https://www.local.ch/de/q?what=schuh...Wo&slot=yellow

Will cost you "Foif Batzeli" and the "Nägeli dezu".

Re: Shoe repair in Zurich

I had good experiences with the services of Sanbert Schuhreparaturen, Badenerstrasse 138.

Re: Shoe repair in Zurich

I have a pair of very comfortable shoes that have blue soles. Any chance someone can replace them? With something non-slippery. There are so many shoes and soles that are slippery unfortunately...

As I used to do all these repairs back home. There was a shoe-maker/repairer in neighbourhood doing a great job, even fixed my personalised insoles that were done badly in Switzerland, but he is now unfortunately very old + covid... so I need a new shoe-repair person...

Re: Shoe repair in Zurich

Sanbert put non-slip soles on a slippy pair of boots that I have and so far it has stayed put for several years.

Re: Shoe repair in Zurich

what do you pay roughly ?
I think that 30 chf to glue a rubber sole or a heel top lift (55 for both) is a bit high but that seems to be the normal price here.
