Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz of the Beastie Boys has joined forces with L.A.-based shoe brand Keep to create vegan sneakers to raise money for Planned Parenthood.

Horovitz is sporting the "Ramos Ad-Rock" above. He told Billboard the shoes came to life because, "I support small business. I support women run business. I support Asian-American run business. Net proceeds of this shoe will be donated to Planned Parenthood because I support a woman's right to choose and feel that women should not be punished for making decisions about their own lives and bodies."

Although, they were created with a charitable effort in mind, style isn't compromised as they come with interchangeable magenta and black shoelaces. The sneakers were also designed to withstand cool temps as they are lined with faux shearling.

You can preorder the shoes and see how hold up against the Minnesota cold.
