SoGiv shoes are described as innovative and thought provoking footwear designs, that are as much of a creative expression as the hook from your favorite song. Simply put, SoGive’s are deemed conversation starters with eye catchy design elements telling a story, oftentimes without you having to be present to explain it. All of this and more are found in the soulful release of the SoGiv x Stax Music Academy awareness shoe benefitting the Stax Music Academy.

The Stax Music Academy shoe features the original Stax records-inspired ceramic tile design taken from the entryway of the hit making E. McLemore studio located on the top panel design of the right shoe. Musical notes from Isaac Hayes a-top the left shoe panel, accompanied by black and white piano key-inspired notes on the outside profile; while the inside profile features a 3 and 2 piano key design silhouette. 

The shoe also features SoGiv’s signature “Cause Code,” giving you the opportunity to scan the integrated QR code located on the back pull-tab, which directs you to Stax Music Academ’s homepage to learn more about their soulful mission and the many ways you can support this great cause.
