Well, it's not everyday that I get to write about Ben Affleck and fashion. I mean, he's fabulous and all, but the thought of him as a fashion designer...?
But awesomely enough, that's what today's little blog is all about! Ben Affleck just officially added suedo fashion designer to his long title, and has teamed up TOMS shoes with his Eastern Congo Initiative organization to design a limited-edition shoe collection to help support the people of the eastern Congo. We're definitely digging that.
The shoes are inspired by traditional Congolese textiles, and are formulated under TOMS signature environment friendly materials and comfy make. And the best part of this whole shindig... TOMS has added to their one-for-one model where not only will they donate a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair sold, but $5 from each sale will be donated toward ECI's family and youth programs.
We think that's pretty dope!
What do you think of the shoes for a cause?
