We simply adore the bright, kicky creations that resulted from our partnership with BucketFeet – unique printed pairs that celebrate BucketFeet’s mission of self-expression and global connection through art. In honor of our collaboration we asked Chicago-based blogger Liz Schneider of Sequins & Stripes to chat with local artist Erin Burke, a full-time designer for Paper Source who created the cheerful palm print that appears on our C. Wonder x BucketFeet sneaker. Liz dropped by for a Saturday morning chat about the soon-to-be iconic pattern and discovered that Erin’s love of vintage botanical wallpapers and fabrics (not to mention her island upbringing!) inspired the tropical theme that’s sure to have you dreaming of exotic getaways. Check out Erin’s original sketches, browse her site and read on for more behind-the-scenes info.
