So this looks like fun. If you’ve ever ordered from Soludos, then you know that their shoes are adorable and out-of-this-world comfortable. Now, you can actually check them out in person with the pop-up shop in Soho. The store is designed by interior designer Tara Bean and offers a great selection of their amazing footwear. Gotham magazine sat down with founder Nick Brown and Tara Bean to have a chat about their plans.
When asked why he opened up in New York City, Nick Brown explained:
“I started the brand out of my apartment in the West Village about eight years ago—a lot of people think Soludos is a European brand but it was born and raised in NYC. It’s such a dream to have our first shop right next to iconic neighborhood spots like Prince Street Pizza and Cafe Gitane. There’s an incredible blend of both locals and international visitors exploring SoHo regularly. The inspiration and people watching in SoHo is hard to match, with such a deep blend of creativity and fashion in the area. It’s a fun place for us to call home.”
When asked why they created their first brick and mortar store now, Nick explained,
“We’re really proud of how beautiful our product is, from the leather-soled sandals, sneakers and of course our espadrilles and really wanted to give our customers the opportunity to touch and feel the quality of the materials we’re using. It’s amazing to meet our customers to get their invaluable feedback as we continue to evolve.”
Come and touch. And enjoy. And buy!
