with the holidays comeing up I have a couple pairs of dress shoes in the back of the closet that could use a little TLC. does anyone know of anyone in town who can just shine em up a little?

I've used Macino & Sons Shoe Service, located on Sylvania a little east of Secor.
Second vote for Macinos - they are great!
I'd grab a can of Kiwi and an old shirt and have at it. Don't get those instant shine sponges, get polish. But if you don't want to do it yourself, Macino's and Pasquale's are good at shoe repair, but not sure how good of a shine they can do. Or you could go down to the barber shop in the Spitzer building, there's a guy that shines shoes down there.
Mancino's rocks - I have used them several times to repair shoes, and they have a machine that polishes shoes almost to a mirror-like finish.
Ace_Face: I too like to polish my shoes with good old-fashioned Kiwi, but this method Mancino uses creates a shine on your shoes so brilliant that it would blind you, were it not for the fact that you are now so über-cool that you are also wearing UV-resistant Ray-Ban Wayfarers.
Anyway, a special occasion is as good as any to splurge an get ultra-shiny shoes.
I fell out of love with shoe shining when I was in the military. I can put a helluva shine on 'em, but really dislike doing it.
There's nothing classier than dress shoes/boots with a good spit shine on them. I do my own, but if I was going to pay----I'd take then to Pasquales', where I take any leather work I might need done.
I posted a vote for Macino's ^^^ but am curious about Pasquales. Find myself with a pair of light beige suede boots in need of a good cleaning, and am curious about alternatives. Please do not take this as anti-Macino's. Have always had good experiences, but am a little nervous about having this work done. Wulf, are you around? Thanks!
well...Tommy's definitely not a good option
Another vote for Macinos. I had them resole a pair of motorcycle boots, and when they were done, they were literally, better than when they were new.
