Mary-Kate, Ashley Olsen Give Needy Children Some Functional New Footwear

The Row for TOMSDarren Yokota

Talk about happy feet! Children in Honduras were recently treated to one-on-one shoe fittings with designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who visited the Central American country to deliver footwear on behalf of TOMS. The actresses partnered with the charitable brand to create a limited-edition line of shoes through their label The Row; in celebration of the collaboration, they brought brand new pairs of TOMS’s everyday walking shoes to needy kids from three different communities outside the city of Tegucigalpa. The sisters were joined by a group of volunteers, and when they weren’t fitting feet, they visited classrooms and played soccer with the locals. “Having the opportunity to be a part of something so meaningful has made the collaboration with TOMS special to everyone at The Row,” Mary-Kate told WWD earlier this year. The TOMS + The Row shoes themselves, available in gray, black and plaid for $140-$150, are made of Italian wool and cashmere blends with lamb leather lining and black suede insoles. And just like TOMS’s everyday shoes, proceeds from sales of these cozy classics will benefit the greater good: for every pair of TOMS + The Row shoes sold, a child in need will receive a new pair of shoes. –Kate Hogan
