While I applaud what Paul van Dyk is doing with TOMS to help those who are in need, I just wished I liked the fruits of their collaboration enough to actually want to wear the kicks. Paul van Dyk, the Grammy Award-winning trance pioneer (or as the press release we received said, the "creator of 'Trance'"), and TOMS, who aims to go One To One with every piece of product purchased, collaborated on a special limited series of eyewear and footwear. While TOMS is no doubt a great company to link up with, I can't front: rocking these $70 kicks with the "PVD logo on a cosmic background" just isn't my personal hype. Maybe that's just me. Maybe you'll like them.
This is a limited-edition collection that also features a pair of Beachmaster shades that rock a similar colorway. Paul is a humanitarian, and something like this TOMS collaboration is definitely up his alley. You can check out more about the collaboration via PVD's special TOMS microsite, and check out a special mix he did to hype this collection down below.
