Hunter Hayes officially launches his shoe collection “The Rescue Collection” today on Zappos.com. The five-time GRAMMY nominee’s inspiring track “Rescue,” released earlier this year, kick started the limited edition shoe collaboration, with the designs stemming from the David Garibaldi paintings created in the song’s accompanying music video.
“The Rescue Collection” features two shoe designs printed on Superga sneakers. Hayes has gone out of his way to add the personal touch and has included signed copies of Hayes’ hand written lyric sheet in every shoe box. He has partnered with Zappos for Good, the charitable arm of Zappos.com, to designate 100% of the net proceeds from the “The Rescue Collection” to the North Shore Animal League America. The CMA Foundation for auction will also receive benefits from Hayes as he donates select pairs of shoes from the collection to the fund.
“We’re very excited and grateful to see this idea we had earlier this year come to life and have the potential to help so many people,” shared Hayes. “I am a firm believer in the power music has to help people and it’s been incredibly uplifted to see how many people ‘Rescue’ has reached. The launch of the shoe collection furthers our mission and I am excited to see the positive impact.”
Hayes has also endeavoured into a three-part mini-movie “Pictures” today with the accompanying visual for new track, “More.” Forbes launched the mini-movie in November, additionally revealing the culmination of “Pictures” will occur early next year in a mini-motion picture event in Nashville. The mini film features Hayes in the clip as he details the story of a woman and her daughter. The lady falls in love with photography as her husband goes away to war to help her get through the pain of missing him. The happy ending to the song is certainly befitting of the uplifting lyrics in the song.
Forbes picks up the storyline with Part 2 today, sharing “and just like that, you’ll love Hunter Hayes more in his new music video”.
Hayes continues to deliver innovative avenues to share his music with fans across the country. Follow along as he soon reveals audio for the third installment in the mini-movie ahead of its early 2018 premiere.
