At Bucketfeet, Artists Find a Platform for Their Art on Shoes


BucketFeet, a globally inspired, artist driven footwear brand was co-founded in 2011 by then 20-somethings Aaron Firestein and Raaja Nemani. The two first crossed paths in 2008 while volunteering with children in the villas outside Buenos Aires, Argentina. Aaron had a history of designing custom shoes and Raaja was an ex-banker turned backpacker. The two were inspired by Aaron’s experience working with artists in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro and Raaja’s travels to all corners of the world (wearing shoes designed by Aaron of course).

Together they set out on a mission to find a different artist to design each and every shoe the company produces. Talented artists get the global exposure they deserve, and customers get original shoes that stand out and tell a story. Since launching in 2011, BucketFeet now works with more than 100 artists from over 30 countries and sells shoes in 10 countries around the world, online, and in  100 retail locations.
