We just love when cool products are associated with a great cause! Last night the StyleDemocracy team had an opportunity to preview the HOPE SNEAKER – a collaborative effort between Toronto Shoe designers Sully Wong and the ONEXONE foundation. The Hope Sneaker is a one-of-a-kind unisex sneaker that was created to support ONEXONE’s initiative to raise funds for a paediatric wing in Hospital Mirebalis in Haiti. 50% of all Hope Sneaker sales goes to the cause.
“Henry and I are both thrilled to be working with ONEXONE on this sneaker project”, said George Sully, co-founder of Sully Wong. “The initiative hits close to home as both my parents are from Haiti, So I am honoured to collaborate with such a committed organization on its mission to support relief efforts in Haiti.”
The limited edition sneaker features ONEXONE’s iconic red and black signature colours, mixed with Sully Wong’s clean low-cut silhouette style. The shoe uses a quality natural duck canvas for the exterior, a red hand-stitched capsule base that houses a removable commemorative ONEXONE footpad.
With only 360 Pairs created, the $150 unisex sneaker will be available online and at the Brad J. Lamb (778 King Street W.) King West Block Party taking place on July 19th from 12pm-4:00pm.
