Sub Pop 25th Anniversary Toms 

A pair of kicks to make your feet rock.

Globally conscious hipsters with a barren shoe rack will soon have the perfect thing to fill the void. California shoe company Toms—best known for its Argentinean-inspired alpargata canvas slip-ons—has collaborated on a collection of kicks with Seattle-based label Sub Pop (which launched Nirvana and, more recently, New Zealand's folk-pop/geek-rock export Flight of the Conchords) for the alt-rock label's 25th anniversary. The limited-edition collection features men's Paseo lace-ups in gray, and Classic slip-ons in navy (for the guys) and red (for the gals), branded with Sub Pop's logo.

Along with the shoes, buyers will get a download sampler album of Sub Pop's current signings, featuring a variety of new and rare tracks from Shabazz Palaces, Mudhoney, Father John Misty, Pissed Jeans, METZ, Shearwater and King Tuff. They'll also contribute to Toms' nonprofit One for One project, with the company donating a pair of canvas shoes for each pair sold to children in need across 50 countries.

The shoes went on sale online July 1. To try them on before you buy them, you'll have to head over to Seattle and pop into either the Nordstrom's or Sub Pop's Silver Jubilee celebration in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood Saturday, July 13.
