Fact: Pack & Paddle rocks. The outdoors? Shoes? Canoes? Winning! As usual, they have a gang of stuff going on. On April 9, Pack & Paddle will host a “Style Your Sole Day,” featuring everybody’s favorite eco-conscious, philanthropic shoe company TOMS Shoes. Founded by Blake Mycoskie in 2006, TOMS Shoes matches every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need.

To make things more interesting, local Lafayette artists will be at Pack & Paddle to turn your new pair of TOMS shoes into a wearable piece of art. A $10 donation to the artist helps support them for the day, and your purchase of a pair of TOMS shoes gives a new pair of shoes to a child in need. Pack & Paddle will have special TOMS shoes on hand for adults and kids that are perfect for your artist to jazz up for you.  This is a great opportunity for you as an individual to buy some shoes for the coming warmer months while simultaneously participating in some philanthropic artiness. Two birds, one shoe.

Be at Pack & Paddle on April 9. "Style Your Sole" day runs 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
