Michael Grey Footwear – “Knowledge for Souls”

Michael Grey is a handmade shoe line from 27 year old designer and shoe craftsman, Michael Mack. He’s currently trying to raise $10,000 to launch his brand and fund a great program by the name of “Knowledge for Souls”. A program that will teach under privileged children around the world how to make sustainable footwear with discarded materials that are already available to them.

‘For as long as I can remember I have always had a love for footwear design.  From the concept to a sketch on paper, to the handwork and stitching that make the shoe come alive, and on to the finished product in action on our busy city streets. The creation of a great shoe is more than footwear; it’s a work of art. As a footwear designer for the past 5 years, I’ve been able to design footwear for various brands, including Roberto Cavalli.  Learning the skill of handmade footwear in Firenze Italy has allowed me to fine-tune the craft of creating high quality, original footwear.  I have traveled back and forth from NY to Asia designing for multiple shoe factories. This has helped me to better understand the footwear i design, and allowed me to bring my dream to all of you!’ – Michael
