You may be vaguely aware that another US presidential election season is upon us, unless of course you’ve been sequestered in a Himalayan yurt somewhere, totally unplugged until just this very second. (In which case, hey! Thanks for making a visit to Cool Mom Picks one of your first stops!) While we can all agree that the next several months should be…interesting, to say the least, leave it to TOMS Shoes to turn our civic responsibilities into some generous do-gooding with the new election edition TOMS shoes.

You’ve got your choice of two styles, featuring a patriotic pattern of either Democratic Donkeys or Republican Elephants. And no matter which pair you opt for, TOMS donates a pair to children in need.

Though likely not a pair of the political shoes.

Democratic donkey shoes from TOMs show your political colors while donating to a child in need. Also available with elephants.

Republican elephant shoes from TOMs show your political colors while donating to a child in need. Also available with Democratic donkeys.

I think of it as a more subtle way to support your candidate than a t-shirt or a button. And I’d actually love to see the final results (data nerd that I am) of how many of each were sold by November.

Or hey, maybe you are living in a split household. In which case, grab two pairs, wear one of each on each foot, and make a statement that goes way beyond footwear fashion. And probably confuses the heck out of your neighbors.

Find the Democratic Donkeys TOMS shoes or Republican Elephants TOMS shoes online at TOMS for $55, likely for a limited time.
