Have you heard once or twice about how dig local art? It’s still true! And one long-time TOMS friend Gabriel Lacktman, who creates stenciled and spray-painted Classics every now and again, is helping us celebrate TOMS + art with a pair of Limited Edition Black Sequined Leopard Women’s Classics.
Gold and bold
Some believe that subtlety is overrated, and those are the TOMS fans that are about to get psyched over these sparkly, metallic Classics, made especially for these 12 Days of Giving! Gabriel Lacktman used a laser-cut stencil to add a gold, animal-print overlay to these Classics, which now make up a collection of just 300 pairs.
But are these the most responsible shoes to give to children in need?
An informative tidbit from our Giving side: When you purchase a pair of TOMS Shoes, we give a pair of new shoes to a child in need; but it’s not necessarily the style you purchased.
Lots of times – like when you purchase Glitters, Wedges, or Wrap Boots, for example – the TOMS you bring home aren’t the practical shoe to give to children who rely on TOMS as a primary pair of all-purpose shoes. Our Giving pairs are specifically designed for kids’ everyday wear, and we have variations for local topography and needs.
