    The Shoe Cobbler


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter erikolsen profiled 92-year-old Henry Linder, who has been in the cobbler business for 76 years. 'I was absolutely taken by his presence,' he said. 'The way he carries himself, he's youthful.'

    Olsen’s video brings to life an everyday character with an extraordinary story. Great profiles give you a glimpse into a person’s world and tell you why this person is special, and this iReport certainly shows the amount of time Olsen took getting to know the cobbler.
    - zdan, CNN iReport producer
