Get that "Old School" Shoe Shine!
Boston began learning his craft at the tender age of nine in his home town of Little Rock, Arkansas.
He operated his shine booth at Tulsa International Airport for over 20 years from 1989 until last year when he relocated to his own shop at 4606 East Admiral PL in fulfillment of a dream.
Let Boston Put a Smile On Your Shoes!
How long does shoe shine last?
A: As a general guideline, if you wear your shoes frequently (3 or more times per week), you should get a basic shine at least every 1-2 weeks, a glass shine at least every 2-3 weeks, or a bulletproof shine at least every 3-4 weeks.
Sadly, most of us don't have the time to get a daily shine from a professional like Boston Torrence.
So while Boston will be happy to put a smile on your shoes when you drop in. Sometimes you need a little touch-up or maintenance shine between visits. Never fear Shoe Smiles carries a full line of polishes leather conditioners, boot-blacking and other at-home supplies.
Isn't this expensive?
A: Absolutely not a professional mirror shine for a standard pair of shoes can be yours for as little as 8$. For the price of a Latte show that you are a gentleman of old-world style and look your best. LIke Boston says "You only look as good as your shoes!"
Isn't this a dying trade for men from a bygone era?
A: While men are traditionally portrayed as being the exclusive clientele of this specialized trade, much of the modern specialty market of leather products are in fact marketed to women. Along with shoes, handbags, hats, gloves, and many other accessories are made exclusively for women. These items can also be a large investment, and the best way to ensure they last is to give them proper care. Ladies, Boston welcomes you to be queen for a day, by having your shoes, treated like royalty.
