Two classic, canvas shoe styles and a different artist for each design. Sounds like a pretty rad idea, right? I certainly think so, and since its inception in 2011, Bucketfeet has worked with over 75 artists in 21 countries, with backgrounds ranging from graffiti and tattoo artists to graphic designers to make each pair of lace ups or slip ons 100% unique and conversation-starter worthy. A portion of the proceeds from the shoes goes back to the artist, and you can read the various artists’ bios here (and if you are an artist, apply to design a pair, here). The Dots style (available in spring 2014) I’m wearing in these pics was created by artist Carrie Van Hise, who is coincidentally also from New York City.
The shoes don’t sacrifice aesthetics for quality, and have a sturdy, durable, non-slip outsoles, anti-mildew and massage bubble insoles, a padded collar on the canvas for extra comfort, and of course, the Bucketfeet logo found throughout. My camo pants and cashmere hoodie are part of my perennial weekend look, and I’m thrilled to seamlessly incorporate these shoes into the mix! Which Bucketfeet design is your favorite? Prices range from $39-$78 for women, men, and kids offerings.
Full Disclosure: Fashion Pulse Daily received a pair of shoes, courtesy of the brand.
