converse-boston-sneaker-one-fund.jpg With the release of Converse's new Boston All-Star today, we're feeling a renewed sense of shopping to benefit our fair city. Here are some of the local makers donating proceeds from product sales to The One Fund.

Chuck Taylor All Star Boston, $85, Converse.
Boston-based cult sneaker brand Converse just released their city-themed shoe, complete with a skyline of the Hub in Celtic green.

One Heart Boston shirt, print, and tote, $25-$35, Hairpin Communications.
Hairpin senior designer Aaron Bouvier created the now-viral One Heart Boston graphic, and you can get it on totes, t-shirts, and prints to benefit the victims.

Patriot's Day print, $40, Old Try x Union Park Press.
Old Try, two Southerners who run a print shop in Boston, released their first New England print to honor their adopted home (also, $6 from Oklahoma prints this week will go to disaster relief).

Boston Marathon Relief Mixtape, $1 or more, Allston Pudding.
Music blog Allston Pudding put out the call for local artists to donate songs for the One Fund, and now there's over 130 tracks on the mix tape. The download is available for as little as $1.

Bracelets, $5, Pura Vida x Motley.
South End shop Motley is stocking Pura Vida bracelets in blue and yellow for just $5. They are also available on Pura Vida's website.

Boston Strong T-shirts, $18-$25, Ink to the People.
Design-savvy Bostonians have hit web marketplace Ink to the People to create tees in blue and yellow. Everyone from Emerson students to folks who ran are making shirts tagged "One Fund" that donate proceeds to the charity.

8GB USB wristband, $19.95, OnHand.
Support the One Fund while never forgetting your files. OnHand makes wearable USB wristbands, and the Boston Strong variety features a yellow skyline on a blue background.

Upcycled necklaces and bracelets, $5-$25, Shoestring Magazine.
Even Melissa and I have joined the cause. You can order our handmade friendship bracelets or upcycled t-shirt jewelry through the Shoestring Etsy shop.
