The Left Shoe Co. Pop-Up
As too-cool Los Angeles sheds it’s year-long pouty face for a cheery holiday grin, all thoughts turn to the festive season and the requisite gifting that goes with it. There’s shopportunity on every corner, but for those still searching for the perfect gift for the main men in their life, you could do a lot worse than Finnish gent’s footwear brand The Left Shoe Co.’s first ever holiday pop-up on Beverly Hills’ Little Santa Monica Boulevard – open only until 31 December.
In a stark white space furnished with woody old-world accents, the futuristic cobblers – who famously brought shoemaking into the C.21st with their cutting-edge technology –
use an ultra modern 3D foot scanner to make virtual lasts from which they fashion their perfectly-fitted, made-to-measure foot candy. Shoppers are truly spoilt for choice with their dizzying array of hand-finished styles, varying from derbies to oxfords to even cleated golf shoes, and featuring quality materials like premium calf leather, Europe-sourced suede and exotic crocodile hides. Sharing the prime real estate is luxury suit tailor Élevée, which sources over 3,000 varieties of fine fabrics from the likes of Ermenegildo Zegna to Scabal, but if you miss the pre-Christmas/NYE rush, fret not! LSC’s permanent location on Melrose Avenue will still be cobbling post Dec 31st, so no one will be Left out.
Until 31 December.
