You guys are amazing!!!! Thanks to everyone pre-ordering the Keep x Ad-Rock kicks which support #PlannedParenthood. If you've written or messaged with questions, please know we will respond to you as fast as we can! We're a little overwhelmed by the influx but happily digging in. Also everyone who wants the sweatshirt which sold out in about two seconds, we'll be re-stocking soon and will let you know when. Just want to say how sincerely moved we are that so many of you have shown such support, are spreading the word, and wrote so many sweet and kind messages. We worked on this with Adam as a way to channel our energy and to try to do something, however small, to support and protect the things we hold dear. Thank you community for energizing us when we felt shook, for inspiring us and motivating us. We stand taller and stronger because of you! #keepxadrock #adrock #beastieboys #veganshoes #consciousfashion 馃摲: @sleepydz

Horovitz is sporting the “Ramos Ad-Rock” above. He told Billboard the shoes came to life because, “I support small business. I support women run business. I support Asian-American run business. Net proceeds of this shoe will be donated to Planned Parenthood because I support a woman’s right to choose and feel that women should not be punished for making decisions about their own lives and bodies.”

Although, they were created with a charitable effort in mind, style isn’t compromised as they come with interchangeable magenta and black shoelaces. The sneakers were also designed to withstand cool temps as they are lined with faux shearling.

You can preorder the shoes and see how hold up against the Minnesota cold.
