The Fairfield Comedy Club has found a unique way to support its comedians.
A Vans shoe created through a collaboration with the club will be released on Tuesday at noon.
The club was chosen as a winner of the company's Foot the Bill Initiative, which helps small business impacted by the pandemic.
Up to 1,000 pairs that feature the club's logo were designed by artist and Connecticut native Guy Stanley Philoche.
All proceeds benefit the club's comics, many who have been out of work.
"We've got this opportunity to help out people who have been struggling, a lot of talented people that have been coming here and providing entertainment for our community for the past few years," says Joe Gerics, the founder of the Fairfield Comedy Club. "So, if you're able to and if you can spare, or it if you need a new pair of sneakers or know someone who does, if you are a skater or creative, buy a pair."
The goal is to raise $50,000. Shoes can be purchased online.
