8th Generaton shoes for walking in two worlds
Louie Gong's Eighth Generation shoes are gaining ground fast. A Native American of mixed heritage (Nooksack, Chinese, French, Scottish), Gong understands the challenges and opportunities that exist today for people of mixed heritage living in a modern world while trying to honor cultural identity. His hand crafted Coast Salish designs on the iconic Vans shoes reflect this understanding and they are becoming as popular as any new fashion on the Paris catwalks. Gong is also an activist for people living in multiple worlds as President of the Mavin Foundation among other innovative projects.
