Heel The World

Two young men still smouldering out of school. They snip and suture soft Italian leather from scratch (after they have gauged your feet with true callipers). They call the magnificent shoes 'Heel the World'. They give a percentage back through a charity. It's not confusing. It's inspiring and quite clever. They're making things happen in the city of Accra. It's pure art!

  2. Very clever...very,very clever considering how the shoe industry(I reckon) seems to be unchartered territory for young ghanaians.Everybody would rather work on clothes.Very clever...very,very clever considering how the shoe industry(I reckon) seems to be unchartered territory for young ghanaians.Everybody would rather work on clothes.
