If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook [which you obv do] you may have seen my social media exclusive giveaway with Bucketfeet to win a pair of sweet sneakers. Although the winner has already been announced, I wanted to share with all of my lovely readers the Google+ hangout myself, along with fellow Miami Fashion Bloggers Ginger Harris, Kelly Saks, and Maria Tettamani conducted. We had the opportunity to interview Bucketfeet co-founder Raaja Nemani as well as one of their artist/designers Felipe [all the way from Brazil]!
What is Bucketfeet? “BucketFeet gives artists a platform to connect with people and showcase their work in a new way. This is why the brand was started, and this is our central focus. We give back to artists by purchasing their work, and paying them royalties for every pair of shoes we sell. It doesn’t stop there. We also support kids through programs in art, music, and sports. Aaron and Raaja met volunteering with kids, and it’s important for us to stay true to the story of the brand. With every purchase, we donate a percentage of sales to our non-profit partners.”
&& the winner was….Dan Chizzoniti! Congrats Dan – I hope you LOVE your new tennies 🙂
