About Us

When was the last time your feet felt like a million bucks? If you can’t remember, visit Mike Smith at his shoeshine chair. Smith has been shining shoes since he was 13-year-old youth in his hometown of Hernando, Mississippi. There he learned the trade from a shoe cobbler, who gave him his first paying job. The next thing I know, I sort of perfected the craft of shining shoes.

These days Smith is retired, having spent 33 years in the K-12 education arena. He moved from his beloved Southland, where he also played saxophone in various blues bands up and down the Mississippi Delta, and Memphis, TN.

Mike met his” twin flame”, Margaret aka Maggie, a fifth generation Nevadan while attending an educational conference in Denver, CO. In 2018 they were happily married where they make Carson City their place of residence.

Shoe shining is more about the connection with customers than simply just polishing their shoes to a gleam. My form of social media is conversation, having a natural conversation with another individual, you just can’t beat this, you build relationships…that’s what it’s all about.

You can establish a great clientele if you offer a service, and if they like it, believe me they’ll come back to see you. They’ll refer and tell their friends about it, too. I love shining boots, shoes, and cleaning saddles because I make people smile and happy.

We’re excited to announce our inaugural Shoe Drive for Soles4Souls, a campaign that embodies our belief in making a global impact while serving our local community.

At Shiny Soles, we understand that small acts of kindness can ripple into monumental changes. That’s why we’ve partnered with Soles4Souls, an organization dedicated to turning unwanted shoes into opportunities. By participating in our Shoe Drive, you join us in a mission that transcends shoe shining and touches lives around the world.

Our commitment to giving back has always been at the heart of what we do. We believe that every pair of shoes we collect can provide dignity, warmth, and hope to those in need. It’s about more than just footwear; it’s about making a difference.

As we embark on this philanthropic journey, we invite you to be a part of something greater than yourself. Join Shiny Soles Boot & Shoe Shine in our Shoe Drive for Soles4Souls, and let’s take steps together to shine brighter, walk stronger, and leave a lasting impression of compassion on the world. Together, we can make an impact—one pair of shoes at a time.


"Mike Smith the owner of Shiny Soles Show Shine was a vendor of mine at the 2022 Reno Snaffle Bit Futurity and he can definitely clean up and put a shine on a pair of boots. Our riders like to have their boots cleaned and shined to go show in. Keeping a good pair of boots cleaned and shined is a necessity in our horse show world. I recommend Mike for a great boot shine and conversation. Come see Mike at the 2023 Reno Snaffle Bit Futurity."

"Mike Smith is a very professional individual who consistently produces great quality work. I have been a client of Mike’s for 4 years and, needless to say, have been very impressed. Mike is passionate about what he does and delivers fantastic customer service. His attention to detail and honest character are the very reasons why he is the first person I refer my friends and family to."

Mark J. Elston

"Mike is a man of personality, love, wisdom, and incredible experience with all types of leather products! I've witnessed him pouring his love and work into shoes, boots, riding chaps, tack and saddles. It's amazing to see how any product that he touches, he's able to reform into looking like new again!! Highly recommend!"

Mark Palazzo

" I met Mr. Mike Smith, owner of Shiny Soles, at a cutting horse show being held at the Reno Sparks Livestock Center. I noticed he had quite a few people coming up to get boots shined throughout the show. On the second to last day of the show I saw a saddle up there and boy did it look nice! I asked him if I could bring a saddle up for some TLC. My saddle was really dirty, many miles in the weather. With all his hard work he was able to get it looking new again. I was most impressed with how he said, he would have it done by 4 or 4:30 pm and he was right on schedule, staying a half hour later at the show just to finish it when he said he would. I was so happy with that one saddle that I asked if he would travel within a reasonable distance. I live roughly 2 hours from Reno and operate a big cutting horse training program. We have quite a few saddles onsite and I wanted to have all of ours done before we hit our fall cutting horse futurity run. We made last minute plans for him to come over the hill to do as many saddles as I could rally up over the weekend. He set up under our main barn, had all the saddles out and ready to go. All of them looked brand new, he was kind enough to take notes on small repairs we needed on each one as he went along. It was a pleasure to do business with him and we plan to do more as we go along. Thank you Mike, we are so glad to know you!"
