Best Affordable Shoe Shine: Jessica at Kervin's Barber Shop

You'd think they'd be everywhere, what with cowboy boots and dusty, drought-driven days, but as flip-flops and sneakers remain de rigueur in Austin, the noble shoe shine is getting harder and harder to find. Check in with Jessica at Kervin's old-school barbershop in the Delwood shopping plaza (the home of Austin's Fiesta Mart on 38th 1/2) the next time the mud or the scuff get to be too much. She offers quick, thorough, and affordable shoe shines 8:30am-3pm, Tuesdays-Fridays. She goes over your shoes so many times you'll lose count, first with a scrub, then with a number of leather-hydrating waxes and polishes. The grand finale is a fierce buff that brings even the most broken hide to a shine.
