SOHO—Because we're (thankfully) in a season of comfortable (and sometimes ugly) shoes, Madewell is hosting an in-store party to celebrate its slip-on sneaker collaboration (seen above) with Vans. Stop by the shop between 6pm and 8pm for the first chance to buy the kicks, with a special gift at purchase. RSVP here for shopping, sips, and snacks.
CHELSEA—Too many in this world don't have a single pair of shoes, and TOMS is raising awareness for this issue with their One Day Without Shoes campaign. Tomorrow, join the brand at Story for barefoot drinks and snacks starting at 5:30pm, and as always, for any pair purchased, the brand will donate a pair to a child in need.
EAST VILLAGE—Stop by The Vintage Twin pop-up shop at 355A Bowery starting at 1pm tomorrow and opening again at 10am on Wednesday. You'll find bunches of reworked and one-of-a-kind vintage pieces of apparel, accessories, and jewelry starting at $15. Need more perks? They're open until 10pm both nights, 10% of proceeds go to the charity Free Tibet, and there's an open bar.
