‘Artist-Designed Footwear’ Company to Open Shop in Shaw

A self-described “artist-designed footwear” business is set to bring its kicks to Shaw this summer.

Chicago-based BucketFeet, which began online in 2011, is scheduled to open in The Shay in “early July,” according to new signage spotted on the 800 block of Florida Avenue NW yesterday. The location is slated to become the first BucketFeet shop in the D.C. area.

A company representative didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

BucketFeet works with more than 20,000 painters, photographers and other artists from around the world to create its men’s, women’s and children’s shoes, according to its website. All footwear is less than $150.

“We are a brand on a mission to connect people through art,” the company’s website says.
