BucketFeet, the only footwear company based in Chicago, is releasing their first pair of shoes designed by a hometown artist: Jesse Greene - better known as Dense83.
When the new line of Bucketfeet shoes dropped, we applauded the eclectic designs of a few very dynamic Brazilian artists. But we really got juiced when we found out that the one American designer featured in the new line was Oakland artist Meryl Phillips.
If you've kept up with BucketFeet, you know that that artists from around the world have put their imaginations down on the brand's shoes. Gentlemen, please stand. There's a lady now present.
BucketFeet artist Meryl Rose-phillips is an Oakland native who truly believes in the power of art and how it evokes so many different emotions and interpretations in all who view it.
The founders of Bucketfeet created the brand to give artists a platform to showcase their work and footwear was the perfect solution to spread art in a creative way.
With the over saturated shoe lines developing over the past few years, we immediately thought, "Okay, another shoe line?! What's new?!" After going over their sneak peek images, we were sold! Over the course of the next couple of weeks, the brand will release a bunch of new styles showcasing a new artist to highlight.
Fresh. Dope. All That.

Artists from all over the world have begun submitting designs to get involved in this creative and philanthropic movement.
Their business plan allows them to donate 5% of every purchase to one of three charities they work with: Magic, love.futbol, and Children Mending Hearts.
With a motto like 'Buy a shoe, Build a Community,' you better believe that BucketFeet raised the bar with their new shoe party at Studio Paris.
BucketFeet, the recently launched shoe company, is not only raising funds for children's charities, but has also become the "go to" shoe for travelers. The easy to wear, slip ons are wildly popular for those who find themselves frequently going through airport security. The limited edition shoes are quickly selling out!
Along the way he met international artists from all different realms of life, with styles and expressions unique to their cultures.

This past weekend, Paris Club hosted the official launch of BucketFeetshoe company. Paris Club's new rooftop, Studio Paris, which is known for celeb spotting was jam-packed with over 300 attendees.
Bucketfeet is a super fresh company that views a blank pair of shoes as a canvas rather than just a pair of things to cover your feet with. They have a killer artist network built up and whenever someone buys a pair of shoes from the Bucketfeet website, the buyer has the option of choosing an artist to transform the blank pair into a unique one-of-a-kind wearable art piece.
BucketFeet is a Chicago shoe line that I was introduced to by my amazing friend Monique. I am obsessed with graffiti and street art. Probably because I wish I was born with that gift. Now artists all over the world can become part of the BucketFeet community by contacting the company. Sort of Thread less for Shoes, except not.

When we fall in love with something, we fall hard. Meet Aaron Firestein and Raaja Nemani, the driving force behind our favorite wearable art: BucketFeet.
New Chicago-based shoe company BucketFeet focuses more on giving back to children around the world than profits. They aim to raise money for children's charities while displaying new artists' work on each pair of shoes.
Recently, I came across an awesome shoe line that works with independent artists and donates a portion of all sales to charity. BucketFeet, started by Aaron Firestein and Raaja Nemani, represents a new type of social entrepreneurship.
Firestein, who began drawing "wearable art" in college, hand-designed the current offerings-seven patterns in two colors each, available online now. He says that Series 2, which is set to drop by late summer, will feature designs by up-and-coming artists he and Nemani have met during their travels.
Bucketfeet is a brand-spankin' new Chicago-based shoe company that sells limited edition canvas slip-ons printed with designs created by artists from around the world.
BucketFeet, inspired by Firestein's obsession with drawing on his shoes, is the latest addition to the philanthropic sneaker world (Hello Osborns!). RaajaNemani and Aaron Firestein launched their slip-on collection earlier this year and now give buyers a reason to sleep soundly knowing that their "comfort" purchase will help many children's charities worldwide while promoting new artists.
BucketFeet not only aims to help kids in need, but also to showcase the work of global artists. Translation? Customers not only get that warm do-gooder feeling but also a pair of chic kicks that could one day be a collector's item.
BucketFeet is the latest in this new wave of businesses blending social purpose with profit. The Chicago-based shoe company, launched just two months ago, operates under the motto, "Buy a Shoe, Build a Community."
Founder and Creative Director Aaron "Bucket" Firestein has built the brand rather quickly, first working out of a dirty dorm room at the University of Oregon, and later scaling up with the help of one of his early customers (and current BucketFeet CEO), Raaja Nemani.

The footwear industry has often been on the forefront of helping those in need, so it's no surprise that more companies are finding a way to combine selling shoes with philanthropic endeavors. The most recent addition to that list is BucketFeet, a Chicago-based shoe company with the motto, "Buy a Shoe, Build a Community."
We do love our TOMS around these parts (I'm still trying to talk myself into a glittery pair-they are considered office appropriate, right?), so when we got wind of a new shoe company that's giving back with every pair purchased, we had to check it out. Enter BucketFeet, a Chicago-based outpost that aims to raise funds for three children's charities with every purchase of artist-illustrated kicks.
BucketFeet features lots of great designs by various artists around the world.

The company not only raises money for three children's charities but also helps promote new artists with its line of fun, imaginative, limited edition shoes.
BucketFeet brings us adorable kicks creatively done and a portion of the proceeds go to a great cause. Three organizations are lucky enough to be benefitted: MAGIC (instrument program for the kids on the South Side of Chicago),love.futbol (an organization creating safe soccer fields around the world), and Children Mending Hearts (an art program for homeless kids).
With roots in California and Buenos Aires, Chicago based BucketFeet sets out to unite social entrepreneurship with their one-of-a-kind, colorfully patterned sneakers, giving them their motto, "Buy a Shoe, Build a Community".
