Launch Watch: Oofos, K-Swiss
Oofos DF OOlala
To mark the one-year anniversary of the passing of Oofos employee and industry force Duncan Finigan, recovery brand Oofos has released the DF OOlala sandal featuring her initials in an eye-catching black, pink and green version of the popular women’s style. All profits from the limited-edition style will go to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. (Oofos is a longtime supporter of DFCI, and donates 3 percent of all sales to the organization.) The $70 style is available now at Oofos.com.
K-Swiss x Heal the Bay Orange Garibaldi
Paying homage California’s state fish, the new Orange Garibaldi sneaker from K-Swiss was created in partnership with LA nonprofit Heal the Bay. The style — which borrows its bright-orange fish scale upper from its namesake — is made with eco-friendly materials including algae-based Bloom Foam in the midsole and water-based adhesives. Men’s and women’s styles retail for $80; a kids version (which features blue spots on the upper, just like young orange Garibaldis) retails for $60. Launching today, the style will be available at kswiss.com — and all proceeds from the shoe support Heal the Bay.
