I’ve started to customize sneakers and shoes when i was in college. I used to hand-paint them for me, then i’ve started to paint my friends pairs and then some people that contacted me.
I’m happy to release this 1st pair of “Premium Leather–Mid-top shoes in collaboration with the Chicago based brand “Bucketfeet“. Bucketfeet is specialized in the Artist series sneakers. Each pair is designed by a designer and sold online and in Bucketfeet stores. On this collaboration i’ve chosen to create a “Nautical pattern” . The concept of the Artwork was to create a seamless graphic pattern inspired by “ancient stories and tales of sailors“. There was, at the time, a lot of stories and mythical monsters that were living in the deep seas, and a lot of stories of sailors that were transmitted by people and books. Today we still don’t know exactly what’s hidding behind the sea in the depth of the Earth, it’s a mysterious place and great subject to work on.
