Ben Affleck: Actor, Director … Shoe Designer?

Ben Affleck wants you to fill his shoes.
The 40-year-old actor-director has teamed up with the charity-driven shoe line Toms to create a limited-edition footwear collection with proceeds going to his Eastern Congo Initiative.
While the shoe styles are standard Toms fare — a good thing, as they are all hot sellers — the designs are inspired by Congolese textiles. They come in vibrant colors and patterns.
Sales of the shoes will benefit the region, too. Five dollars from each pair purchased will go to ECI, specifically to fund programs for children and families in the Congo. Of course, as is the case with all Toms shoe purchases, a child in need will receive a pair of shoes for every new pair purchased, part of the company’s "One for One" business model.
The shoes are now available on Toms.com — and we pretty much can't wait to see Affleck’s wife, Jennifer Garner, and their daughters modeling them on their way to dance class, the park, or any other fun Garner-Affleck outings.
Meanwhile, this isn't the “Argo” star’s only recent charity venture. Last month he lived on $1.50 a day for a week to raise money for the Live Below the Line campaign.
