Not only do Be & D’s Big City Sneakers give you the ‘look’ of a heel with the comfort of an athletic shoe, but with every purchase of these Hand Gilded Artist Edition’s by Trong Nguyen, the company’s giving back too. This special, limited-edition shoe (only 99 pairs were made) features the silhouette of a high heel pump covered in 24karat gold leaf, hand-decorated and signed by the artist. It also comes with a special graffiti shoebox that transforms into a two-sided picket sign paying homage to Barack Obama and Mitt Romney with the slogan “All for one and one for all.” A portion of the proceeds goes to the Voter Participation Center to register Americans for the upcoming elections. So both your feet and your heart can feel good.
$750, Be & D.
You can also buy the Be & D Big City Pump Silhouette Sneaker in Gold, for $128 at Neiman Marcus.
