Toms and Prabal Gurung team on footwear to support Nepal

Aug 14, 2016

Prabal Gurung and Toms footwear have collaborated on a four piece footwear collection to increase awareness about and support Nepal, Gurung's birthplace.

About the collection of four styles of Toms shoes, Gurung says, "The collection is inspired by my home country of Nepal and its colors, textures and wonderful stories." Shoes are priced between $59 for canvas flats to $129 for lined winter boots and are available now on Toms' website.

For each pair of Toms x Prabal Gurung shoes purchased, Toms is donating $5 to the Shikshya Foundation Nepal.  Gurung established the Shikshya Foundation Nepal in 2011 and over the past five years, the foundation has assisted over 15,000 individuals, and since the 2015 earthquake, it has raised over $1 million towards rebuilding efforts.

"What excites me about collaborating with TOMS is our shared belief in inspiring others and giving back. We’re coming together to make a difference in the world by what we do," Prabal Gurung said about the collaboration.

Founder and Chief Shoe Giver Blake Mycoskies established Toms Shoes in 2006. Since then, Toms Shoes has provided over 60 million pairs of shoes to children in need globally through its buy a pair, give a pair initiative.
