I do not think of myself a “shoe person”, but I realized when I get home, I trip over all the shoes I own. When I was assigned this shoe design project I looked at my shoes and thought to myself “What do I not own?” Colorful shoes were something missing within my wardrobe. From there I started playing with solid colors on different parts of the shoe. After a while I noticed that the yellow, blue, and red ones where my favorite, and from there I got the idea of making a school theme. The yellow one is the “pencil sketch” shoe, blue is the “graph paper” shoe, and red is the “line paper” shoe. After having the three variations I wanted a name that brought them all together and ended up branding the collection “ first Bell”, with the brand name being Cali.
