Baltimore’s One Love Foundation and footwear brand Seychelles have partnered on an exclusive sneaker as part of the Seychelles For All collection.
“We’re excited to partner with Seychelles to bring One Love’s relationship health programs to more communities around the globe,” said One Love’s CEO Katie Hood. “Our goal is to empower young people to see the signs of unhealthy relationships and teach them how to have healthy love.”
The Stand Out x One Love sneaker will launch late this summer and can be found on the Seychelles website. Later this fall, the $119 shoe will launch at select retailers and e-retailers. The shoes come in a unisex fit.
One Love was founded in honor of Baltimore County student-athlete Yeardley Love, a 22-year old college student and Notre Dame Prep alumnus who was killed by her ex-boyfriend in 2010. The family learned during the trial that her death could have been prevented had they recognized the signs of an abusive relationship.
Earlier this year, Love was honored with a statue in her image at the US Lacrosse headquarters in Maryland.
Five dollars of every pair sold will be donated to the One Love Foundation.
