Aaron Feinstein started making walkable foot art back in 2007, when he was a senior at the University of Oregon. He kept the project rolling post-grad, and while volunteering in Argentina the following year, sold a pair to fellow traveler, Raaja Nemani. The two became friends and, in 2010, business partners, adding their prosocial edge to the already cool kicks. Now, a portion of the proceeds from all BucketFeet shoe sales go toward organizations helping kids reach their artistic, athletic and musical potential.
Check out the styles. Pretty funky, right? I will take the Poppin’ Bubbles, pleaseandthankyou … or maybe the Bamboo, in blue. Then again, Free Circle had me at: “The greys keep it classy while the blues keep it gangster.” Fine — one of each will do.
