K* Shoes, Custom Handmade Shoes from a Small Workshop in Williamsburg

In this recent video from Brooklyn Independent Media, Brooklyn based shoemaker and owner of K* Shoes, talks about what it takes to make custom built, handmade shoes and footwear out of a small shop just North of the Williamsburg Bridge.

After several years training through classes at a nearby community center and apprentice with local artists and master shoe makers, Keiko began hand-crafting one-of-a-kind pairs of shoes that reflected her love of active life in the city; walking, biking, & dancing, colors, texture and above all, craftmanship. In 2006, she started teaching her own workshops at the Brooklyn Artists Gym (currently Brooklyn Art Space). Keiko soft-launched k* for Fall of 2009, a collection as a continuation of her vision: chic silhouettes that can be worn from day to night, and expert construction that guarantees great fit and comfort.

Check out K* Shoes if you want your own pair of custom made-to-order shoes.
