Asheville, NC – Astral will launch their seasoned Road Warrior, Gabe Latini, into the East Coast festival scene for this year’s‘Shoe the People’ Tour.

At select events, Gabe will be collecting shoe donations to support homeless shelters where Astral was born, Asheville, NC.
“It takes a very ‘special’ person to do that job. That is totally Gabe; he’s great with people, incredibly funny, caring and genuine.” Astral VP Sales & Marketing Christie Dobson says of Gabe. “Astral has the perfect special person driving that van and representing our emerging brand.”
