Lenny Kravitz Designs Shoes

Anyone with eyes can see that Lenny Kravitz has got style. From his bad boy rocker persona to his grounded bohemian look, Kravitz oozes an aura that any man or woman would kill to have. Fortunately for all those aspiring rock stars out, Kravitz has collaborated closely with Blaky Mycoskie, the founder of Toms “one for one” footwear company, to design his own spring collection. “Being a guest creative director for TOMS was an exciting collaboration,” said Lenny Kravitz. “I’ve been a longtime fan and admirer of the brand, not only for the quality of the product, but also for their social message and commitment to providing shoes to people in need.“Kravitz’s kicks will come in several vibrant prints, including a print that reads “Let love rule.” The collaboration was apparently set in motion by his friendship with Mycoskie as well as his daughter Zoe’s wishes. As it turns out, she a fan of the popular slip-on shoes as well. In this case, it seems that daughter knows best.
