Move over, ladies; TOMS has launched a limited-edition range of shoes to draw attention to cancers affecting men, specifically prostate cancer. The “Movember” movement, a mashup of “November” and the slang term for “mustache,” typically involves clean-shaven men sprouting facial hair over the course of 30 days to raise funds and awareness for men’s health. TOMS’s Movember collection, which includes Classic and Botas styles for men and women, features tiny embroidered “mo’s” designed to start conversations about an oft-neglected issue.
THE MORE YOU MO’
Retailing at $58 for the alpargata-style slip-on and $95 for the high-top Botas, the shoes feature refined waxed twill uppers, latex arches for support, solid rubber outsoles, and cushioned suede insoles for comfort. Proceeds will benefit the Movember Foundation and its partners, including the Prostrate Cancer Foundation and Livestrong.

Join the growing movement of over 1.1 million “Mo Bros” and “Mo Sistas” who are promoting research, survivorship, and education about men’s cancers. Who knows? You may even find yourself at one of the famous Gala Partés held worldwide this month.
