The latest example: An Auburn University-inspired TOMS shoe, one of seven designs included in the goody two-shoes of shoe companies’ new Campus Classics line.
Here’s a statement about the collection from a TOMS rep posted on CampusFashion.Net:
From TOMS’ early beginnings, students have been some of our most loyal fans. TOMS would not be where it is today without the passion and drive from these young fans. They are passionate for more than just TOMS however, sharing the same passion for their alma mater. TOMS created the Campus Classics with their prominent display of school colors, to capture the magic of all that stems from school spirit, rooting for the home team, the diehard rivalries, and singing of the fight song.
Thankfully, TOMS is familiar enough with our ‘diehard rivalries’ not to cross the streams.
And, as is their custom, for each ($48) pair sold, the company will donate a pair of shoes to a child in need.
