The homie and big brother from another, Omar Bailey has just launched his own, made in NYC, eponymous footwear brand.
Having been in the industry as an independent footwear designer for many years now, Omar has amassed a network of material vendors, sole suppliers and a whole host of connections from across the industry, but what’s probably most notable is his partnership with the New York-based, Modern Vice footwear factory.
Each shoe is designed and created, in the same building in Manhatten. Having been in the industry for quite some time myself, I can’t tell you enough just how rare that is. And it also goes without saying that given that the shoe’s are each hand-made, directly in NYC, the quality is top-notch.
It’s always great to see your fam make moves. I’m looking forward to seeing how the brand evolves and develops in the coming season. If you’d like to keep track yourself, make sure to follow the OmarBaileyFootwear Instagram account for updates.
