(Dov is Yiddish for Bear.)
DovAlexander created out of an electrifying near-death experience while working a graveyard shift on a construction site. DovAlexander inserted a knife into a light socket, why you may ask? Tired and asked to do something so stupid, the action nearly killed him and This sent sparks flying! Stepping away unfazed DovAlexander suddenly realized the shoes being worn were the only thing that saved him from electrocution. Using a vast background of Art for the Film Industry DovAlexander combined his love for the bizarre with a love for shoes. These creative display shoes are an everlasting thank you to the boots that saved his life that one silly evening.
