“The Dying Art of Shoe Making”
The DeVito family has been in business for over 82 years. Vince’s grandfather emigrated from Italy in 1916. A shoemaker in the old country, he applied his trade in Trail, opening the original DeVito Shoe Repair store in 1926.
This video captures the dying art of shoe making. Third generation shoe maker, Matt DeVito, demonstrates this old tradition in DeVitos Shoes in Nelson BC.
