The Brooklyn Shoemaker

The Brooklyn Shoemaker

Get your shoes fixed by Frank Catalfumo in Brooklyn.

 

 

The 91 year old shoemaker Frank Catalfumo must have fixed thousands of shoes for his customers since he opened his shop in 1945. Together with his son he runs his shop named F&C shoes. Surrounded by his tools, machines and materials Frank fixes almost everything by hand. Photographer and filmmaker Dustin Cohen directed a short documentary about Frank Catalfumo. The video gives you a nice look inside the F&C shoe shop and tells you about the experiences and history of Frank Catalfuno – The Brooklyn Shoemaker.  I really enjoy watching this example of real authentic craftsmanship.
