To say that Josh Leong is obsessed with shoes, may be an understatement.
Case in point: He co-founded artisanal women’s footwear brand Palola and also started shoe-centric Heirloom by Josh Leong and Josh Leong Shoes. “I moved to Italy in 2014 to complete a bespoke shoe-making apprenticeship at a famous brand called Stefano Bemer,” shares Josh. He’s continued to hone his craft. “I’ve incorporated many of the traditional shoemaking techniques and materials into the shoes that we offer.”
At the end of the day, Josh – whose hobbies include playing golf, tennis and poker – says he loves to have a “glass of wine or beer and a hearty steak dinner”. He also may enjoy a tipple or two at The Other Room at Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel, Jigger & Pony at Amara Singapore or Manhattan at Regent Singapore.
