It’s something almost every American takes for granted: clean drinking water. Unfortunately, many around the world live every day without the luxury of clean, running water in their homes that’s ready and waiting with the flick of a switch. Upstart sneaker brand AMAC Footwear aims to make a dent in the number of people across the world without clean water by being the first sneaker brand with a cause. The brand’s mission is to provide 20 years of clean drinking water to someone in need with every pair of shoes sold. In other words, you buy a pair of AMAC sneakers, and a person without clean water will have it for twenty years. AMAC presents their debut sneaker this March, the Katema. The shoe is named after the town of Katema, Malawi (a country in SE Africa), which is the community that will benefit from the sales of the shoe through proceeds provided to AMAC’s non-profit partner Water Wells for Africa. As you can see, the shoe is an impressively stylish debut for the philanthropic sneaker brand, crafted with a blend of neoprene and leather complete with a woven toe panel. The AMAC Katema will launch on March 12th exclusively at amacfootwear.com at a retail price of $89. The full story on the Katema and the community it will benefit can also be found at amacfootwear.com.
