MEET MICHAEL Mac, a 27-year-old designer, shoe craftsman and founder of Michael Grey, a handmade shoe line.

Michael learned the skill of creating handmade footwear in Firenze Italy, which “has allowed me to fine-tune the craft of creating high quality, original footwear”.

“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,” he said.

“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 is working on 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.
