Is there anyone in the custom sneaker scene that's shifting the culture quite like Dominic Chambrone? Better known as The Shoe Surgeon, Chambrone grew up like so many of us: obsessed with sneakers, but unsure of how to channel the passion into a profitable and meaningful career. He ended up building on the knowledge he picked up in the shoe repair business and eventually blossomed into a self-taught shoemaker who's been responsible for some of the most creative and hyped-up customs in recent memory. 

Instead of giving you our version, we'll let Chambrone tell you himself. The 29-year-old was the most recent guest on Jerry Ferrara's Bad 4 Business podcast, where he dropped a ton of knowledge surrounding everything from his early days as a fledgling cobbler, to his wildly successful "Misplaced Checks" collaborations with John Geiger. This is definitely one you won't want to miss. Here are 15 Things We Learned From Jerry Ferrara's Podcast With The Shoe Surgeon.
