I'm a serial entrepreneur, a husband and father of 2 beautiful boys. I started designing footwear after years of producing tee shirts, hoodies & custom printed footwear. I came in contact with our current manufacturer in Italy that offered a superior product and great customer service. Our 1st brand is Viatu Vyetu (Swahili for "Our Shoes") was created with RACE FIRST is the main idea. The color scheme for this collection is in the colors of our beloved Pan-African flag (Red, Black and Green) as given to us by the Honorable Marcus Garvey. All the footwear in this collection has an African or Swahili name. Our second brand is Fahgetaboutit Footwear. This brand was created for those that want to support but wanted another color from R,B,G. I also designed 2 pair for our sons. Both our children have special needs and I designed 2 pair to bring awareness to their "disabilities". Our youngest has Dandy Walker Malformation so I designed the "Dandy Walker" and our oldest is on the spectrum of autism so I designed "Spectrum". I see my people supporting everyone else, walking in others shoes so I wanted to change that. Why wear other's when you can wear Viatu Vyetu (our shoes).
