Mac DeMarco Signed Shoes
Mac DeMarco is a Canadian singer-songriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. DeMarco has released three full-length studio albums as well as two mini-LPs. His style of music has been described as “blue wave” and “slacker rock” or by DeMarco himself as “Jizz Jazz."
This is Mac’s first time donating to Small Steps Project, and he gave us his shoes before his gig at the Way Out West Festival. They are a pair of black Vans, UK size 12, signed and doodled by Mac himself.

Small Steps Project is a UK charity that wants to inspire everyone to take a small step, because together it is possible to make a difference.
From people volunteering their skills and attending their events, to companies donating their products and services, Small Steps raises funds that go to those who need it most. First, they provide emergency aid, shoes and food to children and communities living on municipal rubbish dumps around the world. Then they provide support for children to take steps into education, and adults into employment.
They deliver their projects in two phases. In the first phase they deliver emergency aid distribution projects, providing items that will protect people from the immediate dangers on rubbish dumps—from shoes, gloves and clothing to mosquito nets, food and water. This enables them to establish the demographics of the dump and devise and implement the second phase of sustainable projects that aims to reduce the time children spend on dumps and support them in taking small steps into education.
Small Steps Project makes documentary films and organises campaigns, such as Celebrity Shoe Auctions, to boost awareness and raise funds for this huge, but often overlooked, global situation.
