Shoes have been a lifelong obsession For Tom Park, owner of Leather Soul in Waikiki. In 2005, he turned that obsession into a business, selling boutique brands of shoes such as Alden, John Lobb and Edward Green, ranging from $400 to $2,000. The emphasis is on personal attention—Park bills his store as the “anti-Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus,” and vows to find the perfect footwear for every customer. “Shoes make the outfit,” he says. “You can wear a $100 suit from an outlet store, and a well-made pair of $400 shoes, and look like the CEO of a bank.” The Royal Hawaiian Center, 2201 Kalakaua Ave. #311, 922-0777, leathersoulhawaii.com.
