TOMS and University of Miami Release Shark Shoe in Time for Shark Week
"My niece is 1 year old and she's been wearing TOMS because they're comfortable and cool. It's not every day as scientists we get to engage in a dialogue with that type of public audience," Hammershlag said.
The Shark Shoe aims to generate funding and awareness for a species of animal that is fascinating, terrifying, and about which we still have so much more to learn.
