Are Your Fall Boots on Their Last Leg?

I challenged Rago Brothers Shoe Repair to make my three-year-old boots look like new. Sure enough, they did just that ... which is why this 102-year-old New Jersey business is recognized nationally as a luxury leather repair shop.

Walk into this bustling operation on Speedwell Avenue in Morristown and you’ll find a repair team of 40 specialists trained in Old-World leather craftsmanship and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. The coolest thing about Rago Brothers is that it’s still family operated, with owners Tony and Tom usually manning the front counter.

Here you’ll find repaired merchandise sporting labels like Burberry, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Louis Vuitton, Prada and many other luxury brands. And if your UGGs took a beating last winter, this is the place to bring them.

I’ve included a before-and-after image of a pair of Louboutin pumps here … check it out for yourself.

    sadly the one and only person that REPAIRS leather at Rago Brothers fixed them boots, but didnt get any credit, ofcourse The Rago Brothers do because they’re the owners. but what about the employee that really did the job? This man was in one of the Rago Brothers interviews, and the next day someone called the store asking for this man, but the Rago Brothers rejected and didnt tell him about it because they didnt want to lose the ONE man the actually does the leather repairing job, which i would call “the money making man for Rago Brothers” yet he doesnt even get paid enough for the job he does, basically Rago Brother have good costumers and get new costumers every single day because they see the great job that this ONE man does NOT the Rago Brothers. Thats why they didnt tell him anything about the people that called looking for him, thats really messed up, because that could of been a change of life for this man. in case youll like to know who im talking about, his name is Felix Maria, leather repairer at Rago Brothers.
