Toms Shoes and Element collaborate on shoes and skateboards

January 28, 2009 |  3:55 pm

Toms Shoes have become popular with skaters, hipsters and hipsters who wish they were skaters, so it seems fitting that Toms would collaborate with a huge skate brand on a limited edition line of shoes and boards.1womens_striped_flower

The Toms and Element Skateboards line launches today with a 1mens_element_print_2 collection of five styles of shoes --three for women and two for men.  Also, Element has designed a Toms branded skateboard to push around on while wearing what else? Toms shoes.

Element will follow the Toms "one for one" rule -- for every skate deck or board bought, Element will give a board away to a child in need of some wheels. 

The shoes from the collection are fun and splashy, with stripes, flowers and graphic prints. The shoes are all $46. Skateboards retail for $150 for a complete long board and $50 for the smaller deck.
