Craftsmanship is increasingly rare in the world today, and Philadelphia is fortunate in having the proprietor and artisan of Unique Shoe Repair as one of the finest.
No job is too small for him, and he gives it his complete attention. The results are always excellent, or better yet superb, and--perhaps best of all in this age of mediocrity--he takes pride in his work.

Dear Mr. Yi
I want to thank you for the wonderful repairs you made to the several pairs of shoes I brought to you.
I must admit that I have not seen such exquisite craftsmanship. You can be sure I will be returning to you for future repairs and I will be happy to recommend your work to others.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Yi
Your talent as shoe repair professionals is quite impressive. I have been to many shoe repair shops over the past ten years, and they had collectively damaged the welts on my shoes by stitching new holes into the welts each time the shoes were resoled. You showed me this problem and pulled all thread out of the welt, before restitching on one pair of shoes. The new job you did made the top of the welt once again have that factory-fresh look.
On another pair which I planned to discard because the welt was so cracked and damaged by prior poor shoe repair technique, you mad these shoes look new by replacing the welt prior to resoling. I estimate your repair saved me $80.00, compared to the price of purchasing a new pair of these Florsheim oxfords.
I am pleased that I have found such skilled craftmen as you, and I recommend you to my friends when they ask about shoe and leather repair.
very truly yours,
John C. Agner
About 2 months ago I brought a pair of boots into this establishment for repair. I was reluctant to bring them as I thought there was no way these boots could be fixed. LIttle did I know, this was no ordinary shoe repairman. He transformed a pair of boots I was about to trash into a brand new pair of boots. It was nothing short of a miracle. Now, I bring all my repairs here, I trust no one else to repair my boots. I recommend this establishment to everyone. This is one of Phila's finest business operations. Thanks for A Great Job!-Howard
My shoes needed to be completely re-make for the soles were cracked completely through, and this wonderful man took on this project and result these shoes to last forever!

Dear Mr. Yi
I just wanted to take the time to say thank you for the excellent work and quality service that you provided for my family and me.
Within the past several weeks I had brought in several pairs of shoes in various states of disrepair. You were able to repair all of them in a timely and cost effective manner. The courtesy that you extended to my family and me was greatly appreciated. It is because of this courtesy that I will continue to bring all my shoes to you.
Again, my thanks for all of your work and attention.

Dear Mr. Kahn,
Finding a pair of shoes or boots that fit well and are of a style to your liking is not an easy task in my opinion. Therefore, once that is accomplished, I'm happy to keep wearing the footwear until I no longer like it. Of course, the footwear shows signs of wear and tear before this happens. This is why I am so happy to have found your shop.
Your work is of the highest quality. In fact, the repairs that you have don to my shoes and boots over the past few years make the footwear better than when they were new. Each time I pickup my footwear after your work is done, the shoes look like new. I actually feel like I've gotten a new pair. I always leave with a big smile. Thank you so much for your perfectionism and best of health for the coming holidays and the New Year.

Thank you so much for the beautiful work that you did on my black pumps. These are my favorite shoes, and I was afraid that they were damaged beyond repair, but you have made them better than new.
I look forward to doing business with you again in the future.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Yi,
I write to express my appreciation for the many years of exemplary service you have given me regarding the upkeep of my shoes. I couldn't be more impressed with the high quality of your workmanship, nor more pleased with honest and courteous manner in which you have mapped our these various repair projects.
I gladly continue to recommend your services to anyone.
I am writing to thank Mr.Yi for the terrific work he did repairing my shoes, and to recommend his services.
Recently, my favorite pair of shoes came apart. They were not only practical, but had sentimental value for me. The stitch attaching the sole to the upper unraveled, causing the sole to become detached. I was upset at the prospect of losing my favorite shoes, so I immediately started looking for someone to repair them. But shop after shop turned me away. They said it was impossible to reattach the sole, because they didn't have the right machine. I became discouraged.
But then I came to Unique Shoe Repair. Mr. Yi didn't even hesitate when I showed him the damage. He did not complain about not having the right machine--he restitched the sole by hand. I have not had any problems with the shoe since. Mr.Yi is a true craftman, and his establishment is truly Unique among Philadelphia shoe repair shops.
With many regards,
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Yi:
It's a pleasure to be served by a business that understands that customer service and quality are good business. Even if good service and good work were not in such short supply generally, yours would stand out.
I will pay you my highest compliment. I promise to keep giving you my business.
See you soon.
James N. Crutchfield
