New York-based retailer Extra Butter recently opened a new location in Long Island City, Queens, and now it’s lending a charitable hand to the World’s Borough by offering up a custom-lasered take on Nike‘s popular Dunk Low via raffle. Using the Dunk Low “University Red” as its base, the special kicks were made to benefit Hour Children, a Queens-based nonprofit that seres formerly and currently incarcerated women and their children.

Limited to a dozen pairs, the style is almost entirely unaltered — retaining its classic leather build and white/red colorblocking. However, the lateral heel of each shoe features a special “QNS” hit, encircled by “Extra Butter” and “New York” text. The “University Red” color scheme is a fitting Dunk choice for this giveaway as well: it first debuted on a Dunk High in 1985 as part of Nike’s seminal “Be True to Your School” pack, and was made to represent New York’s Saint John’s University.

Interested parties can enter Extra Butter’s charity raffle until November 25. Tickets are $5 USD each, and buyers can purchase as many as they’d like. Winners will be announced via an Instagram Live session on Extra Butter’s page at 5PM ET on November 25, and will be able to purchase one of the 12 shoes for $100 USD.
