Joshua Johnson was super nervous to be on film, but he's actually quite a natural. Talking to us after a few days of tradeshows and hang overs in NYC, this L.A. bound bootman gave us a few hours time before his takeoff flight back home. The charming ex-hockey player tells us about his passion -- shoes -- specifically quality, 100% leather boots. Taking the advice of a dear friend who gave him the final boot out of a career rut, a few short months in the footwear game has proven to be one of the best decisions Josh has ever made. His friends and his family are among his supporters, and the collection reflects his appreciation, with each pair of shoes by BROKEN HOMME being named after someone he knows. Though he'd much rather 'make shoes and hand them off to all his friends', he isn't exactly allowed to. It's part of his shtick though. His turn on's include 'hood rat shit, and doing bad things', which probably involves a mix of bikes and bourbon -- but not rum or vodka -- he's allergic. And unless he's popped a Pepcid AC when he's on the sauce, you will only increase his nausea if you are any of these: liar, hypocrite, or sloppy drunk. Of course, good times are only to be had when the days work is done. "I work as much as possible trying to make sure BROKEN HOMME is going where it needs to" Says Joshua. His 'collection' of gray hairs and wrinkles can attest, something he calls wisdom.
