BEHIND THE BRAND
Aram The Cobbler is owned and operated by Aram Hodikoglu. Born in Istanbul, Turkey to an Armenian family, Aram and his brother came to the Washington area in 1982 and began working in shoe repair. Aram started mending and repairing shoes, while working side by side with his brother, Hetom, the proprietor of another shoe boutique in Washington DC since 1990. Along the way, Aram became an expert in custom-made and high end shoes, catering to the well-heeled. After over 2 decades in the men’s shoe business, Aram has realized his dream and is now a proud and independent owner of his own shoe boutique,
Aram The Cobbler.
