Wanted: Animal Collective Sneakers


Fun news for Animal Collective fans: The band has designed a limited-edition collection of sneakers for Keep, and each pair of cruelty-free, canvas shoes comes with a bonus cassette of previously unreleased music. (Pictured here, the “Avey Tare Ghost Tobin,” which retails for $75.) Even better, all profits go to the Socorro Island Conservation Fund, “a non-profit working to preserve the unique biosphere of the Revillagigedo Archipelago off Baja California, where illegal fishing, in particular of its shark population, is a continual threat.” Look for additional designs from Geologist, Deakin, and Panda Bear to drop in the coming weeks.
