Threadless Acquires Shoe Brand Bucketfeet

Online artist community and ecommerce website Threadless has acquired shoe brand Bucketfeet, and the brand will be producing on-demand footwear.

The Chicago Tribune reported that Threadless, which sells t-shirts sourced from an online artist community, will slowly integrate Bucketfeet into its website next year, said CEO and co-founder Jake Nickell.

Bucketfeet also offers custom designs, but with a focus on footwear. It sells sneakers printed with designs submitted by its own network of artists and began producing shoes on demand and delivering them directly within 10 days.

“The thing that’s been really exciting for us is how Bucketfeet has been able to switch all their production from taking huge quantities of inventory to a print-on-demand model,” said Nickell.

The company is not expected to make any notable changes until 2018.
