Royal Toe

(Royal Toe logo based off of Jordon Nesmith’s sketch)

During the Pan-African Student Summit, I was privileged to meet two students with an idea that was beginning to take off before my eyes. The students, Isaac Attrom and Harry Kofi, had a vision to revitalize the world of footwear by introducing their own line of sandals with a twist. These shoes would feature durable and comfortable souls and several variations of straps. The twist is that these sandals would be coupled with a plethora of very stylish kente patterns.

I was honored to be asked by these two gentlemen to sketch a few of the shoe designs for them as well as sketching an alternate logo for their company, Royal Toe, which helped inspire the logo they’ve come up with. Through this enriching collaborative effort, I was able to experience Pan-African unity first hand.
