Acclaimed Fashion label and New York-based brand BATSHEVA, showcased their Spring/Summer ’24 collection with an exciting collaboration with iconic footwear brand TOMS.
This innovative collaboration marries TOMS’ distinctive stylish comfort and BATSHEVA’s unique design sensibilities, culminating in a captivating collection meticulously crafted by BATSHEVA’s visionary founder, Batsheva Hay.
Amy Smith, TOMS’s Chief Brand and Impact Officer says, “Collaborating with Batsheva for the SS24 NYFW Presentation has been an incredibly exciting journey. The fusion of TOMS’ renowned comfort and Batsheva’s unique design perspective has resulted in a collection that captures the essence of both brands. We are thrilled to bring to life a captivating array of footwear that not only embodies style but also reflects our shared commitment to purpose-driven fashion. This partnership stands as a testament to the power of creativity and collaboration, and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”
Batsheva Hay, Designer of BATSHEVA says, “My collection was heavily inspired by the 1950’s. I made dresses out of placemats and oven mitts, so the inspiration was a sort of DIY housewife. I thought it would be cool to hand-sew ruffly trims around the edges and on top of TOMS shoes, to take the casual vibe of the shoes and make them frilly and feminine. We used deadstock lace and ruffled trims that we sourced locally here in NYC.”
The partnership presents a compelling convergence of TOMS’ signature style and BATSHEVA’s vintage-inspired aesthetic. The resulting collaboration embodies the essence of both brands, promising an array of striking pieces that seamlessly harmonize style and purpose. TOMS remains a cherished choice among celebrities, boasting a fan base that includes personalities like Brittany Snow, Olivia Wilde, Sofia Richie, Taylor Swift, and more.
The limited-edition TOMS x BATSHEVA footwear will be available for purchase exclusively on TOMS.com this Fall.

Founded in 2016 by Batsheva Hay, Batsheva plays with American styles of feminine dress – from Victorian to Pioneer; from Housewife to Hippie – by taking elements symbolic of restraint and repression (high collars, voluminous sleeves and skirts) and giving them a modern inflection. By retooling historical looks, Batsheva explores how to extract the strong and beautiful aspects of those styles while rejecting antiquated notions of womanhood.
