We're all about standout sneakers, which is why we're rejoicing that BucketFeet has set up a pop-up shop in the Loop. If you haven't heard of the Chicago startup before, here's the gist: All of the canvas shoes are designed by different artists, like graphic designers and street artists from around the world, ensuring that they're the ultimate conversation starters.
Chicago Grid reports that Bucketfeet will host an official launch party on August 29th, but the shop itself has already opened at 108 N. State Street. You'll find 20 to 30 different styles, as well as casual tees and hoodies. Stop in to get your hands on the seriously unique sneakers for around $65.—Moira Lawler
