Shoeshine.co was established in 1997 and we still have loyal customers from that period.

Having just completed our fifth year in Terminal 5, we are seeing new customers each week who build in time for their regular pre-flight shoeshine.

Every member of the Shoeshine.co team is dedicated to giving good passenger service. We will do our very best for you. We use our skills & expertise in a relaxed & comfortable environment to provide you with an excellent shoeshine - one you will be pleased with. We’ll chat if you want to chat or stay silent if you’re busy on your Blackberry or iPad

"A man with clear north of England roots approached me and said "you look half-intelligent, where's gate 10?" "Very kind sir, which half of the directions would you like?"
It didn't deter him.
"OK clever-clogs, give me the first half then"
"certainly sir, don't go down that way" - We both managed a good laugh before I sent him to gate 10."
