Sub Pop + TOMS


Sub Pop is pleased to announce a partnership with TOMS ( for a limited edition shoe collection in conjunction with the Sub Pop Silver Jubilee 25th anniversary celebration.

We are immensely excited about this partnership, and we are proud to work with TOMS. Sub Pop and TOMS share a commitment to philanthropy and a creative, responsible approach to our respective businesses. We at Sub Pop admire TOMS mission statement – “With every product you purchase, TOMS will help a person in need. One for One.” – and we try, in whatever small ways we can, to give back to our community in a similar fashion. And, of course, we are happy to be associated with footwear as comfortable and stylish as TOMS.

The collection includes the lace-up Paseo shoe in gray for men, and two versions of the slip-on Classic in navy for men and red for women, all with a unique Sub Pop design incorporated into the shoe.

Each pair includes a download code for a Sub Pop sampler featuring new and rare tracks from the likes of Shabazz Palaces, Mudhoney, Father John Misty, Pissed Jeans, METZ, Shearwater, King Tuff, and more. As with all TOMS shoes, for every shoe purchased, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need.

The shoes will be on sale July 1st, 2013 at and TOMS Flagship Store in Venice, CA. They will also be available online at and at the retailer’s flagship store in Downtown Seattle. Additionally the shoes will be sold inside the Nordstrom Men’s Shop tent at the FREE Sub Pop Silver Jubilee on July 13th. Sub Pop’s Silver Jubilee festival will be held on July 12th and 13th in Seattle. The event will benefit Seattle nonprofits 90.3 KEXP FM, Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation and Northwest Harvest.
