SUSPEND is thrilled to announce that we are now carried at one of BucketFeet’s two storefronts in Chicago – Bucktown Studio (1647 N. Damen Ave.) – which opened last year in June 2015. Visitors will find a rotating mix of unique prints, cards, footwear, and other products made by artists only available at Bucktown Studio.
The artist-designed footwear brand founded in 2011 by Raaja Nemani and Aaron Firestein exists to connect people through art by designs done by emerging artists globally. With over 12,000 artists in BucketFeet’s network from over 100 countries, the global street art collective has empowered artists to be brand ambassadors themselves for their respective footwear designs. The minimum run for a shoe is about 1,000 pairs. Our very own ISSUE 06 featured artist, Louis De Guzman, gives a shoutout to Firestein in his published interview (titled “Chicago to Los Angeles” on pg. 52) and also has an upcoming BucketFeet shoe slated to be released this summer in limited quantities.
