    Of Soles And Souls

    The leather industry in Hyderabad saw a massive decline to pave way for modernism, and industrialisation. However, Tarun Oblum took it upon himself to bring back the craft and art of shoe-making to cater to the custom needs of shoe-loving souls. Having attended University Of The Arts, London where he realised his love for handcrafted shoes, Tarun began his venture in Hyderabad by experimenting with small leather goods like passport holders and card holders but soon moved on to shoes which are his passion. Apparently, the quality of the leather products from Oblum is unmatched in the city today. From the Single Monk Strap to Wes Anderson style, this brand does shoes inspired by classic English silhouette with a contemporary outlook. Each of their shoes is hand dyed and made with a minimal use of machinery. Be it for general use or for special occasions, you are sure to get a luxe pair of unique shoes with attention to detail from Oblum. The brand cares about its customer’s needs, and therefore they prefer to have 2-3 weeks of time to work on the product based on a detailed conversation with the customer to understand their style.
