Adam Yauch brings sexy shoe back

Footwear company Airwalk is crediting Adam Yauch with its decision to bring back a discontinued shoe, the Desert Boot.

Before the last Beastie Boys tour, Yauch contacted Airwalk and requested the shoe, which has not been produced for years. Airwalk apparently replied, "Your wish is our command," as the bass man wore the shoe often throughout the entire world tour.

Airwalk will give away 300 pairs of Yauch's beloved shoe at its "Breaking the Mold" event at Hotel on Rivington in New York on January 27, from 7-10 pm. (The shoe is not being produced for retail.) If you would like to attend the event and have a shot of getting a free pair of the Desert Boot, RSVP to by January 23.

Desert boots, by Airwalk. Alright. The original from Clarks. Good. But Horovitz' Wallabees are the real smash! Coolness squared. Ultimate hipsters' toewear.
