Toms has created a special—inexplicably Madras—version of their classic espadrille in honor of summer's other biggest sporting event... Shark Week. Toms founder Blake Mycoskie took up the cause "after an experience diving with sharks," the brand's website states. The resulting shoes, which are lined in a shark-y pattern, retail for $54 and proceeds from each pair go to protect sharks and their environment.
