Amac footwear, the shoes that you have never heard of but are providing water for those in need in Africa. To truly understand Amac first you have to know what it stands for and that is “Austin McAllister”. He was just a young teen at the age of 15 years old who had enough of shoe collecting and decided to start his very first business, Amac customs, which grossed over $300,000 in 3 years.

Stepping away from custom made shows and into creating his own handmade masterpiece, ‘Amac customs’ still plays a huge part of Amac Footwear today. Being the founder and CEO of his own brand at just 19 years old, Austin learned everything he knows about the industry from his first business that proved to be very successful. With those very same skills he was able to change the working environment for designers in the shoe industry. Amac footwear has recently came out with their flagship shoe, the “katema”, in support of Malawi, Africa.
