Joey McMakin shoes photographed by Alessandro Barattoni

Dear Shaded Viewers,


I met Joey McMakin over lunch last season. He’s a good friend of Shaded Viewer contributor, Mario Canal. I thought that you might enjoy seeing what he is doing for Spring/Summer. His mood is Hollywood in the 40’s and 50’s using precious materials and merging colors and textures.


Joey’s love for shoes began when he was a teenager. His vintage collection of shoes from the l920’s, 40’s and 50’s represent the elegance that ignited his passion for shoes.
