Last night I attended the press release party for the new Bucketfeet store in Bucktown (1647 N. Damen). This is the fourth company store company located in the heart of Bucktown/Wicker Park and the space is so open and welcoming. I love the concept of the company; giving artists opportunities to share their art worldwide. You can read some of the artists’ stories at the store or on the blog.
The concept started a few years ago when Co-Founder Aaron Fierstein designed a pair of shoes and gave them to Co-Founder Raja Nemani. From there, the rest is history and what turned out is a community of people supporting artists and spreading messages that art is really for everyone. You too can be a Bucketfeet designer by submitting your work online or in-store.
