Aaron Firestein and Raaja Nemani, the creatives behind BucketFeet, the Chicago-based brand that brings awareness to global issues of social activism has been growing, as Raaja says, "like a weed". Since the last time we talked, the team/duo has been named by Fast Company as one of 7 entrepreneurial forces who are changing the world and launching new styles like rapid-fire. In fact, like lightning tomorrow, two new styles are being launched: 'Cloudwalkers' by Ben Giustino in Berekely and 'Fat Sugar' by Fat Sugar Daddy in Cartagena, Colombia. Raaja says they're not stopping there--no--over the next few weeks they're launching 6 new collaborations so keep your eyes peeled.
