Al's Monroe Shoe Services is a shoe repair service in Upper Monroe. For decades it was owned by a nice old man named Al Riole, who came to the United States from Italy in 1947 and had been in the shoe repair business ever since. He died in 2014 and the shop is now under different management.

Cash only, please.

2011-10-22 17:08:02   I had a pair of leather boots that needed a heel replacement and a pump whose sole was coming off. Al repaired them both and did an excellent job for a good price. Recommended. —EileenF

I brought my extremely beat-up old Clarks to him, after being told by another local cobbler that they couldn't be resoled. A week later they were ready, cleaned and polished with a new Vibram sole. Along with the new footbed he sold me, my shoes are almost better than new, and for a very reasonable price. —DavidWalker
