Homeless Man Makes Beautiful Leather Shoes and Backpacks


everything that I make is something that people wore like thousands of years ago he may not have much but that doesn’t mean he’s sacrificing his style it’s crazy what you can do even just with your hands if you just sit down and start doing it from his leather backpack to his fancy footwear e’en Greer’s creations are impressive for someone who doesn’t even consider himself an artist his craft was born out of making things he couldn’t buy like a good pair of shoes I started doing this for me for my own shoes because I wanted moccasins he says his store-bought shoes used to fall apart on him I used to hitchhike around everywhere always having no money no money for socks it’s the most embarrassing thing if you get invited over to somebody’s house and you go to take your shoes off and it kills the whole mood so I was like I gotta have some real leather shoes Grier is currently homeless I’m not exactly able to pay rent right now doing this while he can’t support himself with his art he says he has been quite lucky when it comes to acquiring some slides I was walking through the parking lot and there’s this weird hippie girl in a van she gave me a garbage bag full of leather and I always find it magically like that found leather at the bus stop one time he also has studio space to work out of thanks to a non-profit in Nashville called poverty and the arts Greer says his family sometimes worries about his current situation I think they’re glad that I’m not on drugs and in jail they’re glad they think they’re glad and I’m basically happy but overall he’s content with life being able to do something create besides of the fact that I don’t live in a house I’m pretty normal for Inside Edition calm I’m Mara muscle bono [Music]

  • He had to kill a lot of cows in mincecradt to get those

  • May God bless this homeless man

  • Please tell me he has a go fund me account

  • Make a go fund me page right now

  • love his leather home made 👍👌so great 😘unique and wonderful 👍💓

  • Gucci, LV finna copy this design and sell it hella expensive

  • Within a few months he will have a mansion

  • Beautiful?

  • Native Americans:..

    AYE

  • Who else thought he was furious pete on the thumbnail

  • Why he couldn't live in his studio?

  • “Weird hippie girl.”

  • "Found leather at a bus station " i.e. stole a leather jacket

  • Look at his Facebook.. he's ignorant.. racist and trash

  • see? hard work pays off! poor ppl should watch this to make some money instead of begging for our money!

  • Old soul 🙂

  • you know he is about to blow up 🙂

  • crazy to do with your hands….. uses a metal tool

  • "His family sometimes worry about his current situation" hmmm.. 🤔

  • Does he have website buy his stuff?

  • You can sell them shoes and backpacks and get a lot of money off of them and then oh can have a house

  • Our ancestor would be proud at him

  • Maybe if he didnt play arts and crafts all day he wouldn't be homeless…..

  • I hope inside edition paid him for this interview

  • It's funny that he says, "Besides the fact that I don't live in a house, I'm pretty normal". Yeah…"normal"; just like a dude who thinks he's a girl. If being content living on the streets and refusing to get a job is normal, I want to stay weird. Why is Inside Edition featuring this guy? He's not doing anything remarkable; he's not helping anyone or contributing to society; and his leather work is beginning amateur at best. Can I get a job at Inside Edition? How much money was spent to report nothing?

  • Where's this guys hole I want one of those awesome backpacks and a pair of shoes yo.

  • Um.. Who's gonna tell the white guy?

  • Ok if his family worry about him why can’t he live with one of his Family members ??

  • He is so creative.Thats good hes not thinking negative

  • Sounds about white💊💉😂😳😰🤢😵

  • He says at end, "Beside the fact that I don't live in a house, I'm pretty normal." Extraordinary seems more like it. I hope this exposure leads to great things.

  • Make a go fund

  • Why don't his parents take him in and take care of him??

  • “Leather shoes” I think you mean Moccasins lmfao he doesn’t know how to properly make them but at least he knows the proper name lol

  • He should get a job were he makes shoes

  • Those scrap leather made “shoes” look uncomfortable

  • He should own a business

  • I wanna give him a hug

  • Happy for this guy.

  • If he had a website, I would buy the moccasins because that would be great for my costume for my project but he didn’t. But my Sister made her own with paper. But it was before I saw this video. So I didn’t have my project anymore because it already ended.

  • Here I am trying to figure out how to get a pair of those moccasin's and the bag and he here in Nashville down the street.

  • I would love the yellow fuzzy ones

  • Wow where do you buy these?

  • No hate on his part at all cause he’s a cool guy right and don’t take it wrong but aren’t those just like, worse versions of moccasins? Y’all realize. Either way that’s sick he makes his own stuff

  • Come live with me😂

  • He’s one clean and talented homeless person

  • this is beautiful? you guys have really low standards… fcuk us… 😁

  • If he is homeless and his family knows why won’t they let him in and at least give him a home

  • Who else wants to buy one of these

  • God bless

  • Honestly don’t you think if they were actually worried and cared they would try to help.

  • You can buy his products here: http://povertyandthearts.org/shop/by-artist/ean-greer/

  • Mr. Beast give him 10,000 dollars

  • I love leather 😀 im all about that stuff, these years you cant find anything that good, so this is nice and simple and at a perfect price

  • He's not homeless, he is a happy wanderer!

  • I like my Prada, Gucci shoes, etc… but those black shoes at 0:09 look nice

  • "There called moccasins". Not just shoes.. I make them all the time and sell them💯

  • Give him a etsy page! Charge lots of money for his leather creations!
