Get Soles from Seoul at Young and Tae

Young and Tae Toronto Shoes

When one thinks of stylish destinations, relatively  few Asian cities are considered to be as fashion-forward as their European counterparts. Enter  David and Jenny Kim, a husband and wife from Seoul, South Korea and owners of Young and Tae, a hip new Queen West footwear shop. Jenny’s family  has been involved in the shoe trade as manufacturers and wholesalers for more than 35 years, but this Toronto boutique is their first foray into the retail  side of the business. Within, women can find private-label riding boots, booties, pumps, kitten heels and flats that combine European and Asian aesthetics,  all artfully displayed atop oak plywood boxes and risers. Open daily. —Linda Luong
