Fishing For Master Cobblers in Frankfurt And Berlin

The desperate electronic search for competent cobblers  --  apparently made by strangers or foreigners  --  in Munich (Articulations Online12 Jan. 2013) was so amusing that I took a similar look at the Frankfurt and Berlin scenarios;  and here are some more interesting discussions on the Internet:

Does anyone know of a cobbler who does more than run-of-the-mill shoe repair? I need someone who does sewing, not just fixing heels and whatnot. Got a pair of boots that are literally coming apart at the seams, and I need someone who can give them a new life.  Cheers, UltraDeb

There is a Polish shoe repairer on Berger Strasse, roughly opposite Saturn. He fixed up my boots.

I go to a guy on Dahlmannstr. (just off Wittelsbachallee) and he has done sewing work on some of my boots and also fixed some of my handbags. He is great I am always very impressed with him. I'd recommend him to anybody he works wonders

Hi there, anyone know where to repair the heels of my shoes, preferably in Mitte/Prenzlberg?  These cobblestones and uneven surfaces are a nightmare for high heeled gals.  Vielen dank!

There's a shoe repair on Schwedter Strasse that I always go to. It's cheap and they do a good job. I feel your pain. I live in my heels, and I find myself having to replace the caps and smooth the soles constantly!
Some extra tips I've learned: Avoid walking on the small cobblestones. If you see smoother pavement nearby, walk on that. If you must walk on cobblestones, try to walk on your toes.
Also...  avoid wearing heels all together after snow has melted. They put sand on the sidewalks, and that sand is HELL on your shoes! In some districts they clean it up faster than others though, so use your judgment!

Oh my, such a wonderfull prospect... but thanks for the tips!

I'm a clog wearer and I twist my ankle almost weeky on the cobblestones. My falls seems to get more and more graceful tho - or at least that's what I tell myself.

There's a great one on the Leipzigerstr. around the corner from Stadtmitte. It's a combination shoe repair and dry cleaners and the guy worked wonders with some of my boots. He is generally really friendly, but the woman who is sometimes there is a bit of a dragon. Am afraid I can't remember the name but it is next to Kaiser's.

Hey guys!

I need to get both heels and boots repaired here - there are some places listed above, but no address and they're from 2006. Anyone have a place they've gone to recently that does good work and is cheap? Thanks in advance!
