When he started working as a teenager in a shoe store, Steve would be far from imagining that that would be his new passion.

This documentary reports his journey, successes and mishaps in the world of shoes, the humble beginning and the whole creative and business process that took him gradually to a top spot in the world of footwear.

The search for new styles and trends that led its mark on the mouths of the world, to the less positive aspects of his ascension, such as his involvement with the brokerage firm of Jordan Belfort (“The Wolf of Wall Street”) that led him to prison, this is a well-done and honest documentary on the ups and downs of a designer/entrepreneur in the fashion world.

This documentary is/was been available on Netflix and Amazon Prime, and probably on other streaming platforms.
