I am so glad to see this little bit 'o fashion news, this one flew under the radar! Prabal Gurung for Tom's. Two nice initiatives make a play in the contributions and for those who love Prabal's pattern drama this is the mini collection for you.
1. For every pair of TOMS x Prabal Gurung shoes purchased, TOMS will donate $5 to the Shikshya Foundation Nepal in support of education for underprivileged children and, more recently, helping aid relief efforts in Nepal.
2. As per usual, every pair bought, an impoverished child will receive a pair of good shoes to wear.
I love this because Prabal has been such an advocate for his home country and helping rebuild after how devastating that earthquake was in 2015 because he grew up there and not to mention, the everlasting damage and continuous rebuilding efforts going on even today.
And at $59, you cannot go wrong with these. I love the design and will get one myself.
These are the red fair isle style in the classic flat sneakers.
(The only thing I dont care for in the collection is the nepal mukluk boots. They seem too simplistic and like every other winter boot for me. Those who may decide between another boots and that, maybe pick this because of the donation element otherwise, skip and get the sneakers or flats!)
