Martha Davis in San Francisco Magazine
This is our favorite season of Martha Davis shoes so far- boots, boots, mules, boots! A recent interview with her in San Francisco Magazine digs into her past as an industrial designer and how she uses those skills to create her artful-yet-wearable shoes.
After so much success with industrial design, why did you start designing shoes?
I was working with many high-tech, high-volume products but found myself miles away from actually making things. I’ve always loved fashion and was drawn to the challenge of designing something usable and beautiful.
Why focus on boots?
Because it’s always freezing in San Francisco, like nowhere else I’ve ever lived. They’re not precious, and you can feel really confident—like you can do most anything in them.
