Scheckmann is a brand that makes shoes and leather accessories only for men.
Designer Sille Sikmann found out that nobody made shoes and leather accessories only for men in Estonia, so she decided to change that.
She worked even in a shoe shop to find out all about what men need/like/dislike.
Everything started to roll from there..
And to reveal the background of Scheckmann and why its only for men, is because it is her old Baltic - German family name and it means a chic man :)!

Vinicius Carvas, aka Cash, from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is an illustrator, graphic designer and graffiti-artist. He likes to utilize visual influences and daily situations to illustrate and create T-shirt designs. A few years ago he met Aaron Firestein during a photography project highlighting graffiti artists from Rio. He knew he had a small shoe project but didn’t realize what it would become. A few years after meeting, he moved to Sydney, Australia, and received an email from Aaron. After all this time, it’s amazing to see Cash-designed BucketFeet.
