Until now, I was firmly of the opinion that politics and shoes do not mix, but that was before indie footwear label Komodo Shoes created these cheerful canvas sneakers to show their support for the Free Tibet campaign, a cause they've been championing for many years.

20% off every pair of the distinctive shoes will go towards the campaign, which calls for an end to Chinese occupation of Tibet, and for improved human rights in the troubled region. The shoes are available exclusively through the Natural Shoe Store, priced at £40. [Via Hippyshopper]
