Walk a mile in my sneaker
Stay a day in my treadz
What gets lost incognito
Is the truth that she dreadz
A soul wont see no clearer
Until it walks another’s treadz.
So take a step towards the mirror
And brave a strangers threadz.

#soultreadz is a contemporary reflection on modern humanity. Observing the themes of superficial popular culture and every day life experience. The sneaker represents identity and questions the association of contemporary culture and brand identity.
#soultreadz asks you to look deeper towards the human aspect of empathy. Underneath the brand and the sneaker is the soul.
Whatever sole we wear, we all put our shoes on to face another day, whatever baggage, whatever sadness, whatever happiness and joy. Life can not be lived without human connection and a good pair of treadz to face the walk together.
Look past the sole to see the soul.
