Suns Sneakers #Eritrea by Grace Mahary

  • 0

From Vogue: View this post on Instagram A post shared by SUNS (@sunsshoes) on Sep 14, 2018 at 1:48pm PDT Together with Suns shoes, Grace Mahary has launched a limited-edition collection of sneakers with a distinctly Eritrean twist: a sunburst print inspired by a scarf Mahary picked up during her travels. Proceeds from the shoes will go right back to the community and provide solar energy to families and schools. Like all Suns’s footwear, the pattern changes the moment you step outside, revealing the alternate color scheme beneath the classic white trainers. For Mahary, the synergy between the brand and Project Tsehigh was there from the start. “I love the mission behind Suns shoes, that kindness is contagious, and the solar component to their product,” she says. “My team was looking for new, nontraditional ways to fundraise and speak to our followers, and this opportunity incorporated my love for fashion into our fundraising plan.”More here
