August Shop on State
This isn’t your everyday shoe shop. August is “an amalgamation of streetwear, art, sneakers and literature.” It’s a hangout for creatives to find unique apparel. It’s a shoe store for people who love the street culture scene.

About this Project
They didn’t just want shelves on the wall to display their wares with benches in the middle of the space for people to sit and try on shoes — they were less interested in creating a shoe store than they were in creating a space where streetlife and art could be celebrated.
Needless to say, the place is dope!
August Shop has designed a sparse, groovy feel to the space. We used maple, white paint and stainless steel to help them create a fashion-forward feel that can serve as both a store, and a community space. They regularly host fashion shoots and events in their sleek-urban boutique.
