It makes perfect sense that the first shoe I designed for Jews Do It is the Matzah shoe in collaboration with Streit's Matzah factory, the fine Lower East Side purveyours of unleavened bread since 1925. Check out the old school photo of their headquarters below. You know they're ancient because that photo features a pre-historic station wagon.

The design above is intentionally simple (hell, I'm learning Photoshop in the process) so the grey area is made of a Newbuck leather, while the matzah pattern is textured leather. Whatever you do, don't get these sneaks in water or they won't be Kosher for Passover.
