Press and People

We know we're good at what we do, but don't just take our word for it! 

“You really are missing one of the great London experiences if you don’t see Romi Topi and have your shoes shined.”
John for Department of Style
“At a very small cost of just a couple of cappuccinos with a friend, you can leave your shoes well taken care of and increase the longevity from just perhaps a year to a decade or more.”
Alexander Lewis for Purple Eagle UK
“People may point out that buying new shoes or having a large shoes collection is rather expensive, and I agree. However, not only am I a believer in good shoes, but also in shiny shoes and preserving your current shoes or rejuvenating an old pair is a quick, simple and cheap solution. My little luxury and secret (not for long!), is a guy called Romi Topi.”
David Gandy for Vogue Magazine
“If you're looking for a quality shoeshine in central London — with some great conversation thrown in for free — Romi's the man to see.”
Harry Rosehill for Londonist
