Toms Shoes X Movember: Some panache with that 'stache? [Updated]
This post has been corrected. See the note at the bottom for details.
Toms Shoes' support of the monthlong, worldwide charity mustache-grow known as Movember is back for another season with two styles of 'stache-embroidered footwear for men and women. That means in addition to providing a pair of shoes to a child in need, purchase of a pair will also help fund prostate cancer research and awareness.
This season, in addition to a new gray waxed twill version of its classic alpergata silhouette with a handlebar mustache design embroidered in white near the heel and a hound's-tooth check lining ($58), the company has added a second style -- a two-toned gray and black waxed twill version of its "bota" (or "boot") silhouette ($98), which also sports a hound's-tooth check lining.
The limited-edition shoes are expected to be available at select retailers and online in early November -- just in time for the Movember growing season, which starts Nov. 1.
[For the record, 12:14 p.m. Oct. 19: An earlier version of this post gave the wrong availability date for the limited-edition shoes. They will be available for purchase sometime in early November, not as of Oct. 15.]
