“Vince has been an extraordinary partner to us and a dear friend and mentor to me from the beginning of our footwear business. He was truly a visionary in an industry with no shortage of great minds and creative brilliance. He would always say, ‘If you are not passionate about what you do, find something else. Find your passion.’ His own passion shone through in all that he did, whether it was working with us on a collection, advising me on our business, or talking about his family (and he considered our company part of his extended family).” — Tory
