Both Taka Cooper’s parents are artists, which more or less mean he was destined to be the all-in-one creator he is today. As a graphic designer, painter, and tattoo artist, Take Cooper draws inspiration from wanderlust: growing up in Illinois he often imagined faraway places with tropical flowers and Queen Anne’s lace—this is the seed from which his BucketFeet shoe, Pacific Nights, grew. Of the design: “The hard edges are representative of Chicago with all of its buildings. Then part of the design is just that boredom of the suburbs, and always wishing you were somewhere else."
