The Impact of Street Art is Going Beyond Just a Canvas

TOMS shoes have been around since 2006 and if you don’t have a pair of your own then I’m sure you know someone who does. For those of you who are not aware of the TOMS epidemic, TOMS shoes is very well known for their “One for One” program. The One for One allows you to give back to those who are in need all over the world. With every product you purchase, TOMS will help someone in need. Whether it be clean water for a week, a new pair of shoes or restoring someones eye sight, Toms is the god of shoe makers.

Just when you thought TOMS couldn’t be more generous, they have just recently come out with a limited addition shoe collection. TOMS Haiti Artist Collective offers men and women shoes with hand-painted designs from Haitian artists. In a country with one of the highest unemployment rates in the world, TOMS commissioned 30 artists to create these limited edition shoes. Allowing the Haitian artists to express the beauty in their culture to the rest of the world.

However, a new company has taken TOMS Haiti Artist to the next level. Bucketfeet, celebrates self-expression and connect people through art. Painters, graffiti artists, writers, illustrators, tattoists and many more original creators are a part of the movement. The BucketFeet Artist Network consists of 2000+ artists in more than 35 countries. Bucketfeet hopes this art movement uses the power of art to unite people and break down barriers, and through their products.

Both of these companies do not only have great products but purchasing their products have more meaning then the average.  You’re experience with these brands is everlasting beyond just the “successful purchase” page.

Check out some of our favorites from both of these collections :

Imagephoto taken from GlobalGrind.com

London’s 3 day Collection: Men’s fashion “week” took place last week, showing off designs off various designer’s lines for SS15. Most runway shoes are known for their one of a kind looks that would not normally be worn by the average person. However this year’s show has taken an entirely new direction. How many of these styles would you try?

3 Reasons Why Puma is Making a Power Move and Why you Should try it too

Image

As always, Addis and Nike are major influences of FIFA apparel and merchandise. While Puma being only a fraction of the size, their smaller brand (in comparison to Addis and Nike) seems to be making power steps during the FIFA 2014 World Cup in order to get a taste of the spotlight.

These three marketing strategies are Puma’s not so secret approaches to stand out and make a better name for their brand. If you apply these three Puma strategies to your style you may too get your own taste of the spotlight.

 

  1. Know what you can pull off and pull it off well.

Puma knows better then to try and over-power their competitors, Addis and Nike. They are just not as popular, and that’s okay. Recently, Puma began working on mainly becoming a livewire brand for runners and soccer enthusiasts because they know that is what they are good at. Style is more than just what you wear, it’s how you present yourself. Like Puma, you don’t always have to be the master of all tasks to be one of the best. Find the style that you know you can be the master of and represents you. You will feel more confident and will find that being dominant in one thing is more satisfying than being mediocre at many things.

  1. Use a different image to your advantage.

Their new cleat, evoPOWER, has the left cleat blue and the right is a hot pink, and is catching the eyes of many FIFA fans. Not only is this a great marketing strategy for Puma, this new athletic trend may be influential to not only athletes but to the way we dress and what is says about who we are. At first it may seem weird, but small statements like this can make a difference on your day and get you noticed.

  1. Stray away from the cliché.

Puma knows better then to begin showcasing their commercials this early in the game. They are now waiting until after the games are over, in fear of getting over shadowed by the other big sponsors of the World Cup. In which they are currently relying on their market strategies to get their name in the lights. Following the rules are means playing it safe, sometimes stepping out of the box is what you need to take that extra step. Just like Puma, step out of what may be the norm and try something out of the ordinary. You may get your foot into a door that you never may have imagined possible.

Like Puma you are a brand, and you need to know what is going to help make your brand grow, while also staying true to what the meaning behind the brand is or yourself.

The two designer’s philosophy, Chay and Rika, was that life is too short to take yourself seriously. This brand, called Jump From Paper, gives you the illusion that your bag made out of Canvas & Polyester, comes right out of a comic book. Chay and Rika created it in order to escape the monotony of everyday life, and bring back the innocence of childhood fantasy.

Hats off! I think everybody fell into the trap thinking this was fake!
