Art at your feet

Another shoe brand enters the country and it’s going to excite a lot of sneaker heads

It’s a jungle out there when it comes to sneakers. In the Philippines alone, we are up to our necks in so many shoe brands, one wonders if there’s room for one more. But any sneaker head would admit that it’s never too crowded to own  another pair.


Bucketfeet co-founder Raaja Nemani had just quit his job in finance and decided to do a little soul searching, and was backpacking across the world when he met his would-be business partner Aaron Feirstein in Argentina. The two suddenly clicked talking about shoes and art, and that was when Bucketfeet was born.

The rise of this independent sneaker brand is phenomenal, because it only started in 2011 and has already become a global brand, collaborating with over 2,000 artists in more than 35 countries. Now they’re holding talks with two Filipino artists.


The brand’s philosophy is to connect people through art since art is universal; it breaks barriers and cuts through cultural differences. Through this, they want Bucketfeet to be accessible to all, helping everyone express his or her individuality through the canvas sneakers they wear that are works of art.

Bucketfeet is available at their pop-up store at the third floor of Power Plant Mall, Rockwell, Makati, Coalition stores in both Eastwood and Greenhills, and soon in Alabang Town Center.
