Eilatan is a company founded on an attitude of “age is just a number”, with enough styles to suit your wants and wishes. It is located in the heart of Los Angeles; on La Cienega and Beverly, and also down south in the area of Irvine Spectrum/South Coast. We have an unparalleled, extensive selection, and we invite you to join us on our journey to finding more.
A quick note on our history: Founders Sally and Dan Goodman sold their 40-store chain of casual apparel/sunglass stores, also known as Pacific Eyes & T’s and Beyond the beach. Immediately after, they were eager to start fresh with a new outlook among the traditional offerings for retail.
They established two key areas for growth and customer outreach: first, it must be a ‘labor of love’; second, it must reflect the desire to express creativity and unique tastes/talents on a daily basis.
A year in research was spent along with the culmination of skills gained from positions as buyers and senior executives for Nordstrom, The Gap, and Allied Department stores; to name a few.
The entire venture led the Goodmans straight to Sally’s closet, where true inspiration took place. She and Dan realized there was a need for a unique shoe store with a collection based on ‘special resources and designers’ normally found in boutique clothing styles; as well as fulfilling the needs of customers with an exceptional sense of style.
In 2003, the Goodman’s opened Eilatan in the Irvine Spectrum in Orange County, California; and in 2004, they opened another unit in the Beverly Center in the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles. The tremendous success of these stores and the relentless requests coming from international customers led the Goodmans to creating the website in 2005. In 2008, the website re-launched with the goal of presenting some of the world's most sought-after footwear. On May 28th, 2011, we opened our third (and newest store!) in Newport Beach/Costa Mesa in the Costa Mesa Courtyards; in memory of Sally Goodman.
In the spring of 2012, a fresh update took place for them in terms of the interface, and TiltedSole.com was born. Inspired by customer loyalty, and the legacy of the founders; the ultimate goal is to build on the worldwide platform created for customers’ unique styles and offer the best in product and client satisfaction.
A year later, Tilted Sole partnered with Shiekh Shoes (http://www.shiekh.com) to encourage expansion and challenge the retail industry to take things up a notch.
Stay tuned for more adventures in shopping, and join us on the journey!
