GRIFFIN was started in 1890 by Tony Aste in Brooklyn, New York. An avid horse race fan, Tony capitalized on the need for shoe shining at the track. Starting GRIFFIN with just a nickel, Tony went on to revolutionize the shoe shine industry by inventing products such as liquid shine and the shoe shine box. Many of our products pay homage to his original inventions today.
