I Like The Old Pros...

Like so many professionals from the old days, shoeshine guys seem to be a dying breed.  You just don’t see many around anymore, understandable in these times.  That’s why I loved Bob Shallit’s piece on “Chick” Richardson, who may be one of the longest tenured shoeshine guys in Sacramento.  Of course, you can do your own shoes, but when an expert who’s lovingly mastered the art form does them for you… it’s way cool.  In this past year, I’ve discovered old school craftsmen who repair watches, repair shoes…. and now I can add a shoeshine pro to the list.  Not that I need them all tomorrow…. I just feel good about knowing where they are.  zax14 photo
