The Bespoke Shoe Maker


  • Raul Ojeda is an inspiring tale of patience, talent and entrepreneurship. Raul started out shining shoes for "wealthy banker types" in Los Angeles. Many asked him for repairs, so... he learned how to repair shoes. That led to making custom shoes. He’s now one of the premier bespoke shoe makers (cobblers) in Los Angeles. He also owns Don Ville, a shoe brand/ If you want shoes that are made for your feet and not the masses, visit Raul soon. It’s a cool shop. You can hang out with his incredibly polite dog; little Suede.
