TOMS is about to welcome a new whimsical print to the family, and they've got this one by the horns after fans chose their favourite print – it's print number three, by the way, and we have to say we agree.

The shoe company joined forces with ELLE US for the TOMS Animal Initiative to help support the conservation of rhinos all over the world. Three rhinoceros-inspired prints were designed and released on Instagram for fans to vote for.

The TOMS Animal Initiative was conceived when founder Blake Mycoskie's wife, Heather wanted to act on her concern for endangered animals. The initiative's first partnership was with Virunga National Park to save gorillas in Congo. Of course, there were shoes involved.

"We are honoured to have the next instalment of the TOMS Animal Initiative program focus on rhino conservation," Heather told ELLE.com. "I loved all three pattern options, so I was thrilled to have the input of our fans to make the decision on the final design."

The finished product, priced at $64, will be available at TOMS.com starting March 2015.
