The Asha Sneaker Will Sweep You off Your Feet

Two pairs of the Asha sneaker by O2Monde in size EU 37/U.S. 6 will be up for grabs at the silent auction to help kick off the event. The design of the Asha sneaker was inspired by Asha de Vos, a marine biologist and defender of whales, and her bold, action-oriented approach to inspiring young advocates to step up and save animals. The sneaker’s vegan upper and recycled natural rubber sole will keep you stylish and comfortable, whether you’re standing at a PETA protest or kicking up your feet to watch our online seminar.
