Walk the walk in shoe for a cause
Sales of Civic Duty sneakers will go to Common Ground, the New Orleans recovery organization that organizes volunteers for a variety of community-based efforts. The uppers of Civic Duty’s Keds-like sneakers are constructed out of Tyvek, a lightweight, durable water-resistant material used to seal buildings. Common Ground will receive 100 percent of the proceeds from sales of the 2011 “Shoe For A Cause.” The $54 shoes are black and gold, with a subtle fleur-de-lis embossed just below the laces.
