London-based boot maker John Lobb opened the Mark Shine, a new shoe-shine service on the ground floor of Manhattan’s Mark hotel on East 77th Street and Madison Avenue. Hotel guests and nonguests alike can get either a 10-minute standard cream shine or a 30-minute high-glaze treatment for formal shoes (both $10) with the products used by John Lobb’s craftsmen in Northampton, England. For those staying in the hotel, there is also an in-room shoe-care service menu that allows guests to choose their treatment, drop their shoes off before bed, and have them delivered back to their room first thing in the morning. The brushes, cloths, wax, and polish used are also available for separate purchase. (212.888.9797, www.johnlobb.com)
