Beware of ShoeShine Randy

Where does one start in regards to Buffalo’s own ShoeShine Randy? You’ll see the middle-aged fellow wandering around Buffalo’s Chippewa and Allentown districts offering to put shine to your shoes. What starts out as $3 will quickly run up to $20 if Randy has his way. Feel free to pay him the $3 with no doubts if you like.  He’s just a pushy sort trying to get enough cash to do whatever he does when he is not shining shoes.  He will do a real “spit” shine if you like (and probably even if you don’t).

These 3 pictures only cost us $5 but according do Randy himself he “…is already on the internet”. A little Google search for “ShoeShine Randy” and we have another RANDY link (and much better quality too).

Good luck to you Randy and may your fingers always be black.
