Las Vegas is full of living history. 2019 marks Gino Alexander’s 50th year of providing shoeshines along the Las Vegas strip. For the last 15 years, this octogenarian’s company, Jackpot Shoe Shine, has been providing customers with a great shine, and a little Las Vegas history while he works.
Located in the Stratosphere “Strat” Casino, across from the new Starbucks, Gino’s weathered hands turn dirty and scuffed shoes into objects of beauty. Over his half-century, he has shined tens of thousands of pair of shoes and boots, belonging to vacationers, conventioneers, and celebrities.
Making a good impression and looking good at the convention includes a shoe shine. Stop by and get yours.
