Ralph Lauren has teamed up with the founder of Tom’s Shoes, Blake Mycoskie, to create a few Rugby designs including a black pair which have embroidered skulls on them, and some other colorful striped versions with rugby numbers.

This is the first time Ralph has engaged in a design collaboration outside his own company.

The additional photos showcase some other new designs in Tom’s Spring collection, including wrap-around knee-high boots which are a huge leap forward from his simple flat designs.

Other design developments in the Toms Spring collection include soles made out of rope and rubber so that they last longer, and there is also a vegan range which is completely leather free.

True to his 1 for 1 business model, for every pair of these Tom’s shoes sold, a pair of shoes will be donated to a needy child.
