- Lori Safer - Seattle, WA. -
- Clayne does an amazing job on all shoes, especially high end cordovan - I’ll keep coming back. -
- Adam Hirsch - Sammamish, WA. -
- Clayne knows exactly what he's doing and runs a smooth operation! He restored my 10 year old boots, replaced heels on another pair of boots, AND shortened a leather fanny pack belt. -
- They all turned out wonderful and beautiful. He's knowledgeable and experienced. I will certainly be back. -
- Kathy Lee - Seattle, WA. -
- I have been a loyal customer of Clayne's for over 8 years now. He has shined, buffed, repaired, painted, and customized dozens of my shoes! -
- He is such a wonderful person and a caring small business owner. -
- They say everyone checks out your shoes first when they see you. And thanks to Clayne, it’s been a great first impression! -
- Jimmy Ng - Bellevue, WA. -
- The day I got my dream boots, I discovered they were so slippery I didn't feel safe walking in them. -
- Old Style Shoe Shine put grippy Vibram soles and toe taps on them so seamlessly you'd never know they weren't original. -
- The work is gorgeous, they were ready in only a couple weeks, and now I can wear these every day! -
- The price was super reasonable for new soles and taps; I've already recommended Old Style to my friends and will be going through my closet to find any of my other shoes that need some highly-skilled love. -
- Brigid Lohman - Seattle, WA. -
- This is my first encounter will a full service shoe shine and repair. Exceptional personal service and attention to detail, and a loyalty program to top it off. -
- Their work is outstanding!! The shine far exceeds what I did in the military. I give them my highest recommendation. -
- Rick Emerson - Seattle, WA. -
- I love nice shoes, but I'm hard on them! -
- I had 8 pair of my shoes refurbished and I'm so happy with the work Clayne and his team did! -
- Especially my favorite Rebecca Minkoff "LOVE" loafers... the blush pink suede needed a good cleaning and new soles; I'd worn a HOLE in the bottom of the leather soles! -
- I am excited to be able to wear them again soon I had another pair of Kate Spade wedges resoled and a few Italian leather booties needed a good shine and heel-tips. -
- Instead of buying another pair of shoes, I gave 8 of my favorites that are already comfy a bit of love for basically the same price as a new designer pair. -
- Win! -
- Clayne will take great care of your favorite, quality leather shoes and handbags. -
- Couldn't be happier! -
- Erica D. - Seattle, WA. -
- Brought in a few pairs of scuffed up boots and Clayne was very friendly and knowledgeable, he assessed all the boots and gave great recommendations. -
- Got suede cleaning/waterproofing on two pairs and a pair of leather hiking boots needed a leak fixed and shoeshine. -
- All boots were returned in fantastic condition, am most impressed by the great work on the leather boots that look better than brand new. -
- Highly recommend Clayne for his friendly and expert service. -
- Mary N. - Seattle, WA. -
- I've never had my shoes shined before but Clayne explained the process and the waxes he uses, and they're pretty high quality from what I've seen from my research online. -
- It's quite fun to sit in the chair and chat too if you have time for it, I'm glad a place like this exists! -
- Chris L. - Seattle, WA. -
- After searching high and low for a cobbler in Seattle, I was so happy to find Old Style Shoe Shine tucked away in downtown! -
- Clayne is great - he assessed the boots I wanted resoled, we discussed material options, my limited timeline (I was hoping to get them done in about 2 weeks or less due to the upcoming thanksgiving break) and price points and I felt like he really listened and provided a good range of options. -
- I paid upfront via credit card and received a text confirmation and receipt which was super nice so I didn't have to worry about losing my ticket. -
- Happily, the boots were done a whole week early and I popped by to pick them up. -
- The whole exercise was super easy and I'm very happy with the new soles and the polish job they did on my boots. I'll be back! -
- Jenn E. - Seattle, WA. -
- This place is what ALL businesses should be! Friendly, polite, funny, and fantastic work I had several questions regarding shoes and products, got all them answered. -

- MYTH -:

- New shoes don’t need to be shined. Shoes only need to be shined when they start to look worn. -

- FACT -:

- If you’ve made an investment in a pair of shoes that you love and want to last, there are several reasons why it is important to get them shined before you first wear them. -
- During COVID-19 a lot of people were not wearing their leather footwear. -
- Leather is skin that can no longer produce its own oils to stay supple, so it will naturally become dry over time. -
- Much of the damage that occurs to leather – tears, cracks, gouges, scuffs, stains, water damage, and color fading/loss – can be directly attributed to or aggravated by dryness. -
- Since new shoes have often been sitting in the box waiting for you to purchase them, they are likely to be in need of conditioning, regardless of how good they look. -
- A proper shine will include an initial round of conditioning with some type of leather balm. -
- This, coupled with the oils in a quality polish, will provide the essential moisture leather shoes need to fortify them against the hazards of wear. -
- A final benefit of moisturizing leather is that it helps stiff new shoes break in more readily, and who doesn’t want that? -
- All leather dries out over time, so we recommend conditioning and polishing your shoes regularly regardless how much use they see. Even entirely new shoes will often benefit from some tender loving care before first use. -
- Frequent maintenance will not only ensure best possible looks, but also greatly lengthen the lifespan of your shoes -
- In addition to giving leather shoes vital conditioning, several layers of skillfully applied, high quality polish puts a protectant barrier between the surface finish of the shoes and the elements. -
- Crucial for hand-painted and ‘antiqued’ patinas, polishing helps finishes to “adhere” to the leather and to resist rubbing off or fading, keeping those sought after artisan finishes safely on the shoes the same way in which it keeps unwanted damage out -
- This includes all types of shoe wear, including sneakers, suede, and nubuck. -
- Because of the Pandemic, shoe manufactures and shoe makers started making higher end dress sneakers. And suede and nubuck is included. -

- Sneakers, dress sneakers, suede, and nubuck are drop-off only shoe wear, it takes between four - ten hours to do a proper cleaning and shampooing of sneakers and suede. We clean the insoles by taking them out of the shoes, take the shoes laces out and wash them, and will contact you if new laces are suggested. We shampoo the interior and exterior, and set them out to dry. Drying times can take between an hour - five, depending on the fabric. We then put the laces and insoles back into the shoes, freshening them up with a deodorant and waterproof them with Tarrago Nano Water and stain proofer. -
