In-the-know pet owners have been flocking to CALVIN & SUSIE since the store opened in Kilohana Square in 2010. The bright and airy space is filled with stylish, unique finds for all of your furry friends, including design-minded squeak toys, beds, bowls and more. Calvin & Susie also supports the active, outdoorsy dog with the popular Ruffwear line of dog boots, life jackets, roamer leashes and dog packs, and fashionable LED collar lights from Nite-Ize Spot-Lits and PetLits to increase visibility during pre-dawn or nighttime walks. “When we select items to sell in the store, we choose them as pet lovers and pet parents first and as a retailer second.”

This is the spot to find the classic Alden “Indy” workboot, now available in black as well as brown chrome excel—movie buffs know it as the shoe of choice for a certain globe-trotting archaeologist.

LEATHER SOUL opened its first location in downtown Honolulu in 2004, but closed it to focus on its increasingly popular Waikiki location. Late last year, however, shoe connoisseurs rejoiced at the return of Leather Soul Downtown.

The new space on Merchant Street is all class with tasteful decor and all the quality shoe brands the stores’ fan have grown to expect, including Alden, George Cleverley and Quoddy. There are also accessories, designy dopp kits, ties and a top-notch selection of mens’ shirting. A drop-off shoe polish service is also available for the gentleman who takes his shine seriously.
