Good for the sole

AIGA/TOMS Sole Search Design Contest winner

Who would’ve thought that a beautifully designed pair of shoes could make a difference in the world? (Actually, I’ve always felt that way personally)

This past April, AIGA Los Angeles paired with TOMS to hold a contest that involved artists drawing inspiration from their communities to create unique, wearable designs on canvas shoes. The blank shoes to begin each entry were purchased from TOMS shoes. The company matched each purchase, as they always do, by donating a pair to a child in need. The contest resulted in some very interesting and creative shoe designs.

    Those look really comfortable. Buying and customizing a pair is definitely on my todo list. I especially like the ones by Shardul Kiri.
