Mickey A. is a traveling shoe salesman, whose colorful Sabah shoes are treasured by many. The last time he headed out West for events in Los Angeles, Ojai, San Francisco, and Portland, Mickey opted to take the scenic route up California’s Highway 1 in Ekaterina’s Jeep Wrangler.


He landed in LA and headed to the top of the boutique Hotel Covell in Silver Lake for his first Sabah trunk show.

After stopping at all of his favorite LA destinations, Mickey headed out to Ojai. At the funky-chic Ojai Ranch Inn, he hosted a poolside event that gave him some time to tan and showcase the shoes.

Hitting the road again, Mickey headed up to Big Sur and Carmel, where he got a moment to enjoy the beach before arriving in San Francisco. After a few delightful detours, meetings with friends, and delectable meals, Mickey made the long haul to Portland for his final event, and his Airstream trailer accommodation.
