Who doesn't go looking for a shoe repair shop at some point. And yes, most of them don't make news.  But a shoe shop just opened in Lincoln Square that is making old sneakers, new again. And it may help solve some gift giving problems for many North siders. WGN's Steve Sanders explains.

At least a dozen Marins now own shoe repair shops in the Chicago area. And Joshua's dad is thinking about opening a school for shoe repair.  And though "Fix Your Kicks" has only been open a few weeks, Joshua's already thinking about his next location. If things work out, Roscoe Square, here he comes. You can share this story and find Joshua by clicking the link below.
