The Custom Print Shop at Baggins is pleased to showcase a few new kicks we have available that are the result of another artist collaboration!

The Lori Diamond Art collection features the colourful designs of Lori Felt, a versatile American artist and designer who uses mixed media to create art that inspires and heals. You’ll find her artwork on paintings in galleries, but it’s also made its way onto leggings, hats, shirts, bags, wallets, and of course, shoes!

Lori’s artwork is as meaningful as it is colourful. Focusing on supporting breast cancer and autism through her work, Lori aims to contribute to a socially conscious world. Lori is constantly donating her art to numerous charities, including the Linda Creed Breast Cancer Foundation where she was also able to participate in the auction for charity last year.

Anyone who is feeling that Philly Pride might want to invest in a pair of Baggins Original Lori Diamond Art Philly Pride. The colours of these shoes will be unmatched by any other pair of shoes out there. Plus, the design is just so fun and cheerful even if you’ve never been to Philadelphia before.

The quote you see, “We Are What We Create” is attributed to James Oppenheim , an American poet, editor, and writer.

More in the cooler colour tones, the Baggins Original Lori Diamond Art #NY  is a street-art, urban-inspired design that allows you to showcase your love for the Big Apple.

Then, for those of you getting married soon, the Baggins Original Lori Diamond Art Bride With Soul  is an eye-catching stunner of a shoe. Not only will it catch eyes, it’s bound to be comfy on the big day because it’s a Converse! We love the unique shade of pink that Lori has added to this design, and are so proud at how closely the Baggins print shop has been able to replicate it for wearing on your feet.

“Art has always been the essence of who I am. However, I never fully realized this until I became chronically ill and could no longer hold a paintbrush,” Lori says on her artist profile on InLiquid.org. “When my health was restored, I felt as though I was given a second chance and discovered my true purpose: celebrate living and celebrate the beauty of life through my visions. Now anything that I gaze upon appears to have an inner brilliance that I was not able to fully realize before. My color palette intensified to mimic my new blissful passion for life. I found myself experimenting by letting my soul lead the way.”

In addition to the sneakers featured here, Lori has a line of luggage with UGOBAGS (so that your shoes and luggage may match!) and her original art is available in a select number of galleries in the USA.

Side Note: Speaking of brides, Baggins is always stoked to help outfit wedding parties. In fact, this is a great way to put our Custom Print Shop to good use. We have a partnership with MyWedding, a North American online wedding planner, which means we can outfit wedding parties with bulk orders of custom-coloured shoes to match any bridesmaid dress or groomsmen tuxedo. We have been collecting plenty of pics of said wedding parties for a while now and will be presenting those soon in a future blog post. But here are some teaser pics for now:
