From now until January 8th, shoppers who take home a new or certified pre-owned Audi vehicle will be offered an exclusive pair of sunglasses designed by TOMS. The sunglasses will bear the trademark four Audi rings on the red earpieces that support the matte frames. The frames will be available in two styles, Dalston and Florentin, that car buyers can choose from.

Loren Angelo, Director of Marketing, Audi of America, says “After a successful first run during Summer of Audi which resulted in 55,000 pairs of donated shoes, we wanted to continue our collaboration with TOMS and their giving program.” Chief Shoe Giver and Founder of TOMS Blake Mycoskie adds “Tis the season to give back. We look forward to sharing the message of giving for one another, with Audi and TOMS, throughout the Holiday.”

If you’re in the market for a luxury vehicle this holiday season, consider the gift of sight you can give with your purchase.
