"The shoe has to be made to fit perfectly to feel the comfort"
The DiFelice brothers Mario and Rob
Since 1970, the DiFelice family has been proud of their history in footwear and serving their loyal customers.
As an apprentice decades ago, Elio learned to tell a good leather by its feel.
He learned how to expertly fit and shape at a time when shoemaking was an art. With a passion for his craft, Elio learned that fit was the essence of a good shoe.
In 1970, Elio purchased the property at 9 Front Street in Thorold and proudly opened the doors to Elio's Shoes and Repairs.
The store outgrew its humble beginnings, as the name Elio's became synonymous in town with quality workmanship and service.
As Elio's loyal clientele expanded so did the store and its selection of shoes.
Elio’s family tradition continues in a 2,000 square foot store featuring the latest styles in fine footwear.
They also maintain their workmanship in shoe repairs. An onsite centre for leather repairs, production of orthotics, and footwear modifications has made Elio's a market specailist in Niagara.
Brothers Mario and Rob maintain the DiFelice family tradition in the footwear industry.
Today, Elio's has stepped up their evolution in the footwear industry by specializing in corporate programs including incentives for businesses. People from all over the Niagara region travel to Elio's for their premium selection of footwear by some of the world's top brand names.
Elio's also offers custom made footwear and orthotics produced with an exclusive Otabo 3D scanning system.
