On Sunday at the 88th annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles, Beasts of No Nation actor and Oscar presenter Abraham Attah, 15, arrived at the award ceremony dressed in a black tuxedo and velvet TOMS. The for-profit shoe brand donates a pair of shoes to children in need for every pair sold.
The Ghana native told E! correspondent Ryan Seacrest the shoe brand will donate 10,000 pairs of shoes to the people of Ghana.
The 15-year-old actor was also spotted wearing lace-up TOMS on Saturday night when he won for Best Actor at the Independent Spirit Awards.
Besides the charitable statement, comfortable footwear has been big in the fashion community for the last few years. Both Attah’s style and message are truly on point.
