On our minds is philanthropic footwear pioneer TOM’s box-fresh designer collaboration with New York-based label Prabal Gurung. Bonding over the brands’ mutual involvement in humanitarian aid, Gurung took the Tom’s team on an inspiration trip to his native Nepal where they were also introduced to the works of his local charity – the Shikshya Foundation – founded to create educational opportunities to the country’s disadvantaged youth. Meaning that education gave him the freedom to ‘dream bigger’ and become the fashion designer he is today, he is directing parts of the profits made from the ikat-patterned slippers, sneakers and booties to his charity’s cause. See all four styles here.
