As a self proclaimed “wannabe” sneaker head, I’m always on the hunt for cool new kicks. I’m typically a skate/surf sneaker girl, which to me just means a really flat sole and more of a casual vibe. That was until recently when I was introduced to the brand PS821 on Sneaker GPS and fell in love with their Bolts in Python Green. And just like that, I was instantaneously rebirthed into a full-blown athletic shoe loving maniac! Not only are their shoes beautifully crafted and extremely on trend, but PS821 as a whole is a really rad brand for a couple different reasons. For starters, for every style & colorway of shoe they design, they only manufacture a limited amount [my sneakers are 1 of only 100 pairs made… which I love!]. Not only does that help combat the overproduction of goods—which is harmful to our environment—but it’s also cool to know not everyone and their mother will have the same exact pair as you! BUT the best part of PS821 sneakers is that their entire brand is built around the mantra “Soles for Soul.” That means for every single pair of shoes sold, they donate 8.21% of the proceeds to a charity of YOUR choice… that’s right, your choice!
The charities you can select from are:
- Water.org – an international non-profit that is at the forefront of tackling the global water crisis.
- No Kid Hungry – helping to end childhood hunger in America by connecting kids in need with nutritious food & teaching families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.
- The Trevor Project – the leading and only nationally-accredited organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth! [Note: As a child of a gay parent, this is the one that resonates the most with my heart]

Definitely check out PS821 via Sneaker GPS and I hope you fall in love with this brand as much as I did. This post is in no way sponsored [I loathe the fact that I feel the need to say that] but I think it’s important to shed light on brands that are making positive strides! In a world where consumerism is at an all-time high, it’s really great when a fashion purchase can not only make you look good but feel good as well!
As always, sending lots of tropical vibes your way!
