- Hector's Shoe Repair
11 Greenwich Avenue; 212-727-1237
The downtown fashionista’s answer to midtown’s well-known Top Service, this shop is widely known for its speed—many jobs are done on the spot or overnight. It’s a bargain to boot: Full soles and heels are $42 to $45 for men and $25 to $30 for women, while a small tear in a shoe can be patched up for $10 in a day.
