Bon Iver’s frontman Justin Vernon has designed a vegan shoe to help save animals.

Vernon teamed up with cruelty-free shoe company Keep to design the RAMOS Bon Iver for animal rescue organization Best Friends Animal Society. The salmon and black shoe with a fishbone design might not be everyone’s style and the LA Times review was not so great, but the unique shoe is going to benefit a good cause, with a portion of the proceeds going to Best Friends.

Keep says, “Rooted in a shared love of animals, Keep + Bon Iver proudly support the Best Friends Animal Society, an animal advocacy group which operates the nation’s largest sanctuary for abused and abandoned animals.”

Best Friends rescues and finds homes for animals in need, and provides a safe haven to thousands of animals at their Utah sanctuary. Other celebs who have supported the organization include Alyssa Milano, and Jennifer Aniston who even adopted a dog from the animal rescue.

The $75 Bon Iver shoe can be pre-ordered now until July 1st and pre-orders will ship in October when the shoes hit select retail stores.
