About the Artist
Traci L. Turner is a visual artist based in Reno, NV. She has been painting and sharing her work professionally since 2013. Her expressionistic oil paintings often use bold colors and familiar imagery. If you ever become a meme, she might turn it into a work of art.
About the Art
This was a piece from my human heart series called "Los Corazónes." This painting was an exercise in complementary color relationships, a challenge to combine red and green in a way that didn't invoke "Christmas." It was the only red heart that I painted up to that point, so I decided that it would have more of an impact against the green background. The name is a nod to the old school candy.

Yes - We Use EU Sizes
At Kicks for a Cause, we've made the decision to use EU sizing for our shoes, which is more inclusive and allows for a wider range of sizes to fit all feet. We want everyone to feel confident and empowered when they step out in a pair of our shoes, no matter who they are or how they identify. Please refer to the sizing chart below to find your perfect fit and join us in our mission to make shoes more inclusive for all.
Sustainable Fashion for a Better World
At Kicks for a Cause, we believe sustainability is not just a buzzword, but a way of life. That's why we're committed to reducing our environmental impact every step of the way, while still delivering the quality products you deserve.
Did you know that the fashion industry is responsible for about 85% of textile waste? That's a staggering figure, with one in every five items produced ending up in a landfill without ever being worn. But we're taking a different approach.
At Kicks for a Cause, we work with on-demand suppliers to only produce items we get an order for, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. Plus, our Kornit printers generate almost zero wastewater and use less energy than standard industry printers, making them a more eco-friendly choice.
When it comes to printing our designs, we use Oeko-Tex™ certified, vegan, water-based inks that are free of harmful chemicals. And any leftover ink is disposed of according to the supplier's guidelines, ensuring we minimize our impact on the environment.
So not only can you feel good about rocking our kicks, but you can also feel good about making a positive impact on the planet.
