Free Bird is a handmade line of customized military boots applying recycling to fashion in a new way. Created by young New York-based designer, Stacey Howard, the boots were originally collected from military bases in the South. As Howard says, "It felt most natural to my aesthetic to use vintage native American garments and paint to refabricate the boots. Using a soldier's boot and an Indian's blanket, I wanted to merge two opposite and patriotic styles and use them in the most organic way."

Free Bird boots are currently sold through Steve Madden's Steven stores on Ludlow and Bleecker streets in New York.
