Beastie Boy Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz has long been an outspoken and engaged political activist; most recently, he facilitated an anti-hate rally in the Brooklyn park named for his late friend, bandmate, and collaborator Adam Yauch after the park was vandalized with anti-Semitic and pro-Trump graffiti. His latest politically tinged project, however, is a little bit different. Horovitz has partnered with L.A. vegan clothing brand Keep to create a wintertime sneaker, the net proceeds of which will benefit Planned Parenthood. "I support a woman’s right to choose and feel that women should not be punished for making decisions about their own lives and bodies," Horovitz wrote in a statement on the brand's website that also compared the coldness of winter to the coldness of a Trump presidency. "If you have similar beliefs, you might wanna grab a pair," he added. The shoes, which feature a pink elastic lace and Horovitz's name stitched in pink on the outer sole, are available for preorder now.
