My mom died in 2012, 5 years after my son was born but she only got to spend a year and a half with him. My son doesn't remember much of her but her favorite color is purple. I asked my son what his favorite color was and he said purple so I made this shoe in remembrance of my mom.

I wanted to create a shoe in a colorway that I did not already own & one that all would wear.
by Robert C.
My inspiration comes from my mom. She is the person who brought me into this world and I owe her everything. She has the same passion for shoes as I do. When I had a dream to design my own shoes she said, "I can't wait to wear them." So for her I will make these and show her that everyday is Mother's Day. I love you mom.
Mi inspiracion es la fuerza que muestra el mar. Y la paz del atardecer. My inspiration is the force that shows the sea. And the peace of the sunset.
