Excellence in Shoe Repair

Since the late 1930s, the Silver Cup Contest has recognized excellence in shoe repair craftsmanship. SSIA's founders recognized that quality craftsmanship is at the core of success in the shoe repair industry and created this contest as a means to recognize it and promote it.

The next Silver Cup Contest will be held in 2021. Repairers from the United States and Canada will compete for the Robert DiRinaldo Grand Silver Cup.
