Orange ๐ŸŠrelates to 'gut reaction' or our gut instincts, as opposed to the physical reaction of red or the mental reaction of yellow.
Orange ๐ŸŠ offers emotional strength in difficult times. It helps us to bounce back from disappointments and despair, assisting in recovery from grief.
The color psychology of orange ๐ŸŠ is optimistic and uplifting, rejuvenating our spirit. In fact orange is so optimistic and uplifting that we should all find ways to use it in our everyday life, even if it is just an orange colored pen that we use.
Orange ๐ŸŠbrings spontaneity and a positive outlook on life and is a great color to use during tough economic times, keeping us motivated and helping us to look on the bright side of life.

Shoes have been my canvas to create my art. It was my way of expression. From that it turned into mastering the craft... and since circled back to becoming my canvas once again. "Dipped and dripped" white rubber timberlands and white python.

The name "THE SHOE SURGEON" came about 2005/2006 my friend at the time and my brother came to visit me when I lived in Charlotte NC and we decided to DRIVE TO NYC. We never thought about it as a brand but more so what it was we were doing. I did surgery on shoes dissected them and made them better. I believe it was more so like plastic surgery. Originally it was Shoe Surgeonz , then became THE SHOE SURGEON. Now the alter ego/ brand is known around the world. I was a kid who wanted to create. Who did create. And manifested the name into something much larger than a brand or an alter ego. It's more than a lifestyle. It's a story to show dreams do come true. You can turn your life from a negative to a positive. Keep your head up, work hard, follow your vision.

We have been stocking up on scrap leathers from the shoes we've been making. From the best leathers in the world, exotics , dead stock fabrics, and more. We want you to create something amazing. The mystery scrap boxes are up on the site for sale and each one comes with a skull key chain. Thank you

When I was in 7th grade/ middle school we weren't allowed to wear red , blue or yellow. So my friends and I would wear orange. It was a color no one really wore. My parents didn't have much money so we would shop at Ross or marshals for clothing and shoes. I remember searching for anything orange. It was cool bc usually anything orange was super discounted. My mom bought me a pair of DADA shoes (who remembers those?) I sharpied them in orange just to match. ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ

Handmade glow in the dark denim aj1

2005 I randomly stumbled into a shoe repair shop in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was a father and his daughter fixing shoes. I was mind blown that this existed. I was 19 years old. I asked them if they could sew some leather lasered pieces onto this vans shoe I designed. They said yes of course. I was in aw that it was possible. A few years later I ended up back in my home town Santa Rosa, California. I was searching out shoe repairs around town. The first guy I went to cursed me away, the second guy was so busy he could care less, the third shoe repair was Daryl Fazio in Windsor, California. He was open to showing me a machine I should buy. I asked him if I could work for him for free , I would clean the shop and just watch. But he told me no I would be a liability. But the next day I went back and just watched from over the counter. Then he knew I was serious and I really wanted to learn. Soon enough I was behind the counter cleaning, sweeping, organizing. Then it turned into doing "rip work" fixing bags, purses , shoes. Then it turned into fixing @redwingshoes boots and putting new @vibram soles on them. I believe it was now 2006-07 I was putting VIBRAM boot soles on vans, Supra, android Homme, sebagos and more. I was a kid with a dream and a passion for sneakers I had jordans and vans I bought with my own money. I was a kid in search of a hidden craft. I didn't grow up in this business. And all of these ideas I was creating were my own. My dad was a chef. A damn good one at that. Many came before me just in a different way, I'm here to help evolve the craft and become better than I was yesterday. Shout out to the shoe repair shops , shout out to the real shoe makers. Shoutout to the ones who focus on quality and continue to push the craft.

The original 85' Chicago aj1 was the first pair of Jordan's I ever wore. Both me and the Jordan 1 being born in the same year. My cousin had an original pair she let me wear. I was a freshman in high school. I was wearing a Jordan jacket from our German exchange student. My older brother was a junior. He played football , soccer, was excelling in school and knew practically everyone . I was timid shy and quiet entering high school I knew nothing about. When I wore the shoes that day all of my bros friends gave me that head nod. I didn't know what these shoes were and how powerful they would have become. A year later I got a job with a friend at a sports store through that store we made a connection to get jordans early. So I would wear them to a @footlocker or @champssports and the employees would flip that I had them already. My favorite pair of all time was the patent leather Chicago 1. That year each of my crew had the same pair of Jordan's and would literally have to call or text each other letting each other know what shoe they were wearing. I couldn't do that anymore. So I picked up an airbrush and painted my all white af1 mids in camoflauge. That was my "aha" moment that's when I knew I had to create my footwear. I ended up making shoes for friends for years I enjoyed creating for others rather then myself. I appreciate all my clients from the past and the present. Customers that have seen my journey from my first pair to my most recent. To the clients who get what I'm doing...

Deconstructing is an art form within its own. How fast can you take apart a shoe? Yeezy v2 beluga

2016 was successful. Thank you to all that helped make it a success. For the team we have grown into. In 1 year went from 1 person to 7. Changing a hobby into a business. Having success and failures. Growing as an individual and a team. From starting as an artist and turning into a business man. Understanding the value of each part of the business. Learning my strengths and weaknesses. Focusing on what I'm good at. Creating strategy. 2016 still wasn't even the beginning of what's to come. Meetings with major brands, stores traveling the world all from a kid who picked up an airbrush in high school and painted all white af1 in camo. Shoutout to @nike thank you for making it possible. And earlier on age 10, drawing, building , counterfeiting tickets was my way into CREATING. Once was a kid with a big dream. Now I'm just an adult living a life I helped create. Not "customizing" shoes anymore but crafting the perfect one. From a recraft, to a complete original silhouette to private production, to a full bespoke design room. All started as a simple idea as a kid. I wrote it all down with a pen and paper. So many hardships along the way. From so called "depression" , anxiety, self doubt, "bipolar" etc etc and changing that into what reality really is. It's a choice , you are in control of your choice. Remember to make the right choice and never second guess yourself. My story and life is here to show anyone else that's going through something mental or "bad" that you can to overcome it and truly be alive. We are all great human beings it's just how we bring it out within ourselves. 2๏ธโƒฃ0๏ธโƒฃ1๏ธโƒฃ7๏ธโƒฃ๐Ÿ“ถ
