    Looking for leather boot repair

    Ive been to a few different kiosks and everyone cant seem to repair a small hole in new leather boots( Doc Martens), yes the new Martens are awful compared to even 12 years ago. All the cobblers say the boot will look bad--- its a simple procedure.
    There must be someone who has had it done here in Moscow.
    Help.

    wait still a day! i do not remember the name of the shop.. but i will go there and find out the co ordinates. they also have DEPOTS all over town where one can drop off and collect things. maybe there will be one closer to your part of the world. maybe they even have a website...

    ok i got it now.

    Ul. Tvardovskogo 14.1 Shoe repair ´Modern´. the people know that you will be coming with your Doc Martins.

    three ways to get there:
    you have a car or transport,type the address into yandex or google maps. and the GPS will show you.

    Taxi: from Metro Strogino or Metro Shchukinskaya to the building.From Shchukinskaya 500 rubles, because it is 2 districts. from Strogino 200 rubles. not the official taxi, but the thumbs out....

    public transport: easiest from Metro Shchukinskaya, last wagon from center, up the steps, right side, past the remont ( for new kiosks), few steps up again, on the right it goes into the Shchuka center. and the bus stops are in front of you. Bus 640 to stop ul. Tvardovskogo. ( you could take the others as well, but you will do sightseeing around Strogino...there is only one bus and only about every 15 minutes. the taxis are there as well, don't bother, they are ^%#@....
