After a serendipitous meeting in Argentina, co-founders Raaja Nemani and Aaron
Firestein launched BucketFeet in Chicago, Illinois in 2010 to distribute their artist
inspired shoes globally. Until this point, Firestein has been selling these custom
shoes offline and through Facebook.
BucketFeet partnered with Chicago, Illinois based FarShore to build an
e-commerce storefront to allow for online distribution and full
FarShore developed BucketFeet’s e-commerce platform on Magento to allow
for users around the world to purchase BucketFeet products. Over the past 5
years, FarShore has also supported infrastructure and administrative
development to help scale BucketFeet’s growing business.
BucketFeet is now sold across the globe, working with a network of over 45,000 artists, and has a presence in large retailers such as Bloomingdales and Lord & Taylor. The Company raised over $13 million to support its global growth and in 2017 was acquired by Threadless.
