See the Sneakers That Bon Iver Designed

Are you in the market for a pair of quirky sneakers designed by a GRAMMY-winning indie folk superstar? If you are, we have great news: Bon Iver has designed a line of sneakers for Los Angeles-based shoe company Keep.

The sneakers, which you can see above (and in more detail at Keep's website), are salmon-colored with gray uppers and a black fish bone across the toes (which might explain the above cat's affection). The animal references nod to Best Friends Animal Society, an animal advocacy group that runs the nation's largest sanctuary for abused and abandoned animals. The society will receive part of the proceeds from sales.

Animal Collective designed some pretty sweet shoes for Keep in 2010, which you can see here. Bon Iver's shoes will be available to buy in October, but you can pre-order them here now.

So are you going to cop a pair? Let us know in the comments!
