What are BucketFeet?
The unique and comfortable shoes began as a hobby for co-founder and creative director Aaron Firestein, who used to scribble on his canvas sneakers while attending college in 2007. After moving to Argentina to pursue a career in photography, Firestein decided he wanted to "create a platform to connect artists to people around the world," and teamed up with friend & business partner Raaja to launch BucketFeet in 2011.
BucketFeet gives back to artists by purchasing their work, and paying them royalties for every pair of shoes they sell. They also support kids through programs in art, music, and sports. Because Aaron and Raaja met volunteering with kids, it's important for them to stay true to the story of the brand. With every purchase, they donate a percentage of sales to non-profit partners.
