Just in time for breast cancer awareness month, Bucketfeet and Bright Pink have joined forces to create Fall’s most cause-worthy shoe. Available now for pre-order, the shoe, called “One in Eight,” was selected from the design-for-a-cause submissions from 40,000 artists all over the world. The artist, Brittney Grandmaison, created the design to encourage conversation about Bright Pink’s mission of saving women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer by empowering them to live proactively at a young age.
“One in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime,” offers Grandmaison about her inspiration for the design. “I think it is important that all women know this statistic. On this shoe you will see one pink bra amongst a group of eight other bras in a row to represent the woman who does end up getting breast cancer.”
