AND THE EXCITEMENT CONTINUES AT SOM NOV. 2014

Great News! Hello, loyal supporters, we have several things going on at SOM Footwear we wanted to tell you about.

HEART OF SOM SEPT. 2014

Heart of SOM SOM sneakers have extended their reach to Telluride, Gunnison, Crested Butte, Montrose and the North Fork area!

MEETING YOUR SHOE MAKER SEPT. 2012

MEETING YOUR SHOEMAKER Until I met Olivier Marchal, I had a pretty limited idea of what a 'cobbler' was.

His workshop would be dim and cozy, smelling of leather and shoe polish. Needless to say, I was a bit taken aback when Olivier told me he was making shoes.
