Tretorn teamed up with 50 iconic artists including Andre 3000 Benjamin, Jeff Staple, The Shoe Surgeon, Jayson Atienza, Rubina Dyan and UR New York to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic Nylite sneaker. Their unique pieces of art (on Nylites!) can be yours by bidding on the shoes at eBay for Charity, and best of all 100% of proceeds benefit emerging artists at Art Start!
The campaign kicks off today at noon EDT at ebay.com/Tretorn and we would love to work with you on a story about this incredible charity campaign celebrating artistic expression! Would you be interested in an interview with Jayson Atienza, The Shoe Surgeon (Dominic Chambrone), Rubina Dyan or UR New York to discuss their vision behind the shoe they designed and why supporting the arts is so important?
Some pics of the custom sneakers are below – happy to share more if you’ll cover this fun campaign with us! eBay is certainly the destination for sneakers – including collectible kicks. Did you know, a pair of collectible sneakers is sold every 5 seconds on eBay?
The shoes pictured here and the 47 others as part of the Nylite 50 series will be on display at Tretorn’s ComplexCon booth this weekend. Be sure to check them all out if you’re headed there!
