BEST SHOE REPAIR - 2000
Shoes fall apart. And when they do, we usually just throw them out. But what about those Birkenstocks you've had for years? Are you supposed to part ways now just because the soles have worn through to the cork? Not if Eddie has anything to say about it. While Eddie will fix any shoe--within a maximum of three working days, no less--he specializes in Birkenstocks. Such a righteous focus alone could qualify him for this honor, but when you take into account the friendly service (always with a smile!) and the quality of the work, not even Lee's on Lake Street (a close second) can hang. Thank you, Eddie, for helping us all sleep easier knowing that even if life isn't eternal for us mere mortals, at least our Birks might live forever.
