All proceeds from the new shoe will be donated to the organization, the company said. Puma athletes including DeMarcus Cousins and DeAndre Ayton began wearing the sneakers Thursday, and Puma said it will donate $5,000 in the name of each player.

Art director Sam Morrison is using the catchy slides to protest against Trump’s contradictory tweets by launching the President Flip Flop Project.

The clever designer printed some of Trump’s most blasphemous tweets on red and white rubber sandals which are available for purchase at PresidentFlipFlops.com.

The 27-year-old Los Angeles native has been selling the flip-flops on his website in 2017.

“I want to highlight the hypocrisy. Take a stroll through Donald Trump’s 40,000 tweets, and you’re sure to catch some contradicting opinions,” he told Business Insider.

“I hand-printed all 1,000 pairs with a heat press, packaged and shipped everything myself, so it was a very time-intensive project,” he added.

The flip flops are categorized under three section on the website – Electoral College, Syria and Sources.

If you’re hoping to grab your a pair you’ll have to hold your horses for a bit, the in-demand footwear is currently sold out.
