daytonbootsBorn in New Bedford, Massachusetts, Stephen Encarnacao relo­cated to Vancouver when he took the helm of Dayton Boots, which has been mak­ing clas­sic (and now trendy) footwear in Vancouver since the 1940s. The company’s small flag­ship store is on East Hastings Street, in the city’s Hastings-​​Sunrise neigh­bor­hood east of downtown.
