A New Shoe Company Steals Our Hearts: Meet BucketFeet

bucketfeet chicago charity shoes
This new, local shoe company lives by a beautiful motto: Buy a shoe, build a community. Founders Aaron Firestein and Raaja Nemani recently launched BucketFeet, a company that creates one-of-a-kind shoes together with local artists, and then donates a percentage of each sale to one of three innovative, child-focused charities. MAGIC is a string instrument program in Chicago's Woodlawn community. Children Mending Hearts provides resources for homeless children, and love.futbol devotes financial resources toward building soccer fields around the world. We've never worn so much philanthropy on our feet before, but we can't wait to try.
