Louie Gong’s 8th Generation Video Profile by Ogilvie Film

Over the summer Seattle, Washington based shoe customizer Louie Gong had a great opportunity to share his story filmed by a great creative company Ogilvie Film for GetGroundedTV. The 5 minute bio allows Louie to give you a better idea of his custom shoe brand called Eighth Generation that bases designs exclusively on Coast Salish Art. He speaks on what it means to be an artist from the many worlds of Nooksack, Squamish, Chinese, French, Scottish that clash but have inspired him to create his custom shoe designs.

After meeting Louie myself it was easy to see he truly has a non-wavering passion and love for his art that represents lots more beyond a pair of 1 of 1 custom shoes. What he has built in just over a year and a half with such a focused range of designs and overall mission is a great example for success. An example for shoe customizers and anyone else wishing to have purpose in their life, work, efforts, relationships and more.
