Ashley Tisdale, best known for her role in Disney’s High School Musical, has teamed up with ShoeDazzle.com. The actress chose her favourite pair of black boots from ShoeDazzle’s fall collection to benefit the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Tisdale has been a long-time fundraiser for the hospital, and spoke about it recently in People magazine.

''I visited their hospital a year and a half ago, and what they do for those children and the families is amazing, because it's such a tough and stressful time, but to have a hospital that really takes care of these children, and pay for everything: treatments, housing, food for the whole family, is pretty amazing.

''So, I left there feeling like it was one of those life-changing moments, where I was like, 'Any time I can give back to this place...' because they go off of donations, is something that I will do for the rest of my life. So, I'm excited to be able to come out with this boot. I'm a humongous fan of fashion and shopping, so, I'm excited to be a part of this.''

The boots she chose are black faux leather and suede booties, which normally sell for $39.95, for VIP members at ShoeDazzle.com. Tisdale says that they reflect her own “versatile” sense of style.

''I have a style that I wouldn't say it's down to one specific thing, but I like to kind of be rocker chic to chic to boho, and I feel like the shoe is very versatile,” she said.

''My go-to is always my boot, because I'm not a big heels person. I love to wear heels for special occasions, but booties are my favorite. You can [pair] it with skinny jeans, an oversized sweater, a little boho dress to dress it up.''
