Proper has been known to be a source point for limited shoe releases, as well as having a carefully curated selection of shoes for its clientele.  The store’s location allows it to be a central hub for those in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas; the ability to serve both regions has been part of Long Beach’s lure.  At Proper, we believe in building connections with those in the community beyond a simple retail-customer relationship with our patrons.  Moreover, our goal is to reach a global audience with special collaboration projects alongside different brands as well as private label branding.
