Shining shoes is not a career many people choose. However, to Ricky, shining shoes is very rewarding! He enjoys meeting people from various walks of life, all going in different directions with their day. It also offers an opportunity for Ricky to put others before himself by literally being at their feet providing a service. A real slice of heaven for Ricky is the look of surprise and satisfaction on a customer's face after he has brought new life to their pair of shoes. We're really grateful to have Ricky on our team here at South Austin Barber Shop and suggest you give yourself and your shoes a break by trying him out. Ricky and/or his son will give you a professional shine for $6.
