Charity-Supporting Chunky Shoes

Joe Freshgoods 'Performance Art' Supports Various Organizations

— October 6, 2022 — Fashion
Joe Freshgoods has announced that his latest ‘Performance Art’ collection with New Balance will directly support charities working to give back to students. To purchase a pair at Joe Freshgoods' Every Now and Then website, you must make a donation that supports Chicago schools, daycare centers, and numerous charitable organizations, including JFG's own Community Goods. The following requirements for books must be met: diverse characters, books that have won awards, novels for beginning readers, non-fiction books, or any titles from the Diverse Book wishlist.

The sneakers arrive in blue, pink, and green, and feature salmon-colored laces for contrast. Rumors of a wider release are circulating, so interested parties can stay informed through New Balance and select retailers.
