Adam 'Ad-Rock' Horovitz of the Beastie Boys speaks as activists  protest racism and hate after swastikas found in Adam Yauch Park in Brooklyn, New York on Nov. 20, 2016.

"I support a woman's right to choose and feel that women should not be punished for making decisions about their own lives and bodies."

Beastie Boys' Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz is teaming with Los Angeles vegan shoes and apparel company Keep on a new shoe with proceeds going to Planned Parenthood.

The "Ramos" is a black midtop intended to keep you dry and warm in the winter with a water-resistant, nylon cordura body lined with synthetic shearling and a channel quilted, silicon coated nylon accent at the ankle, stuffed with synthetic down. It's accented with bright magenta D-ring and bungee laces, with black also included for those a little more modest. 

"Winter's cold and I couldn't find a warm sneaker to walk around in," Horovitz said in a statement. "Given the outcome of our current election, it's gonna get a lot colder before we can feel that summer sun again. So I collaborated with my friend Una [Kim, founder of] Keep shoes not just because I wanted warm sneaks, but because I support small business. I support women run business. I support Asian-American run business. Net proceeds of this shoe will be donated to Planned Parenthood because I support a woman's right to choose and feel that women should not be punished for making decisions about their own lives and bodies. If you have similar beliefs, you might wanna grab a pair. Or, if you simply support fresh styles, then you too can be part of what peeps in Keeps are doing."
