Midtown Manhattan shoeshiners to close up shop

New Yorkers are known for always being on the move. You can see it in their shoes.

A fresh shoe shine can help the soul.

Vadim Khaimov is the owner of Shoe Repair VIP.

Three generations of the family have been in the business since they started a first location in Queens. His brother works at business on East 45th Street at Park Avenue.

Khaimov says he opened the business thirteen and a half years ago, but their lease is not being renewed.

He hopes to find another location.
