Shoe Company Unveils Bon Iver-Designed Footwear
The latest addition to music-inspired swag comes from the forests of Wisconsin. The Los Angeles-based shoe company Keep announced its recent collaboration with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon on a new line of footgear.
Keep has worked with musicians in the past and created Animal Collective’s surrealist-minimalist shoes in 2010. Opting for a grey-and-salmon color, Vernon’s kicks feature fishbones, which makes sense, considering the collaboration’s major benefactors—Part of the proceeds will benefit Best Friends Animal Society, the largest animal sanctuary in the U.S.
The shoes are available for purchase in October, but advance sales begin today, June 18. Although Vernon’s collaborated with Kanye West in the past, it’s unclear whether the shoe will be called the “Bon Veezies,” but we hope so.
