Each sneaker features Girl Scout branding at the heel and comes in a special cookie-inspired shoebox with silver foil paper for an added ascetic.

The collection launched Tuesday, just ahead of Women’s International Day and Girl Scout Week. The assortment will be sold exclusively on girlscoutshop.com and will help fund programs that support girls as leaders.

Von Furstenberg said, “Prints are what I’m most passionate about. My first job was in the print factory, so I learned everything from creating illustrations, experimenting with color combinations, and then turned my visions into fabrics. So when I was presented an opportunity to collaborate with Girl Scouts, I knew the design had to include the trefoil — a symbol that holds such rich value to GSUSA.” She said she was pleased to “partner with the premiere leadership organization for girls and further support girls to become the women they want to be.”
