‘Honestly, I think footwear designers in general get sh*tted on’
Honoured to have been asked to be part of @slamxhype’s ’5 mins’ feature, check out my #KanyeRant on a lot of the misconceptions and issues in the footwear industry and give some insight into some of the things we’re up to with Concept Kicks. Stay tuned for more great features between #ConcepKicks & #Slamxhype in the near future!#TonyStarkIsAProductDesigner
Check out the interview, here.
Good friend and fellow design entrepreNERD, Brett Golliff recently started a very interesting feature series where he asks his friends and fellow players in the footwear industry what their ‘Go-To-Pair’ of shoes are. You know, the cracked, smelly shoes that you love like a child and have developed a character entirely unto themselves through the drudgery and daily exploits you put them through.
Needless to say, I was flattered when he asked for my own ‘Go-To-Pair’, and it was pretty obvious which one I’d pick for it; my Palladium boots. These wool-lined boots have kept my feet looking great and feeling warm in a multitude of locations and weather conditions.

I was incredibly honored when I was asked recently to be featured in an article for Complex Sneakers detailing how I’ve gotten to my current space in the footwear industry. You can check out the article here.
I was recently asked if I’d be interested in being interviewed about some of the stuff I’m up to (mostly ConceptKicks.com) for Sneakers Magazine in Germany. I feel blessed to have been asked, and the article came out great.
Super honored to be featured in this ‘In Their Shoes’ article where I chat a little about what excites me in the sneaker world, how shoes are art and how inspiring the current era is. Check out the full interview here.
