TOMS is a worldwide and more commonly known brand than it used to be when I came across it many years ago. The main reason I was drawn to this brand was it’s ‘One for One’ movement. The company believes in giving back and for every pair of shoes that are purchased they will give another pair to someone in need. They have the same for their other products including sunglasses and clothing.
The canvas classics are the comfiest shoes to just slip on and wander around in all day. I now have 4 pairs (navy blue with stripe, cream, red and black crochet) and I have absolutely thrashed every single pair. The fact that you know your have assisted in providing 4 other people with shoes that they couldn’t afford makes every purchase all the more worthwhile.
I have also purchased 2 pairs of their sunglasses and the quality (just like the shoes) is top notch. They are great everyday glasses and very durable.
I do hope that you will check out http://www.toms.com and their movement as companies like this are changing the world one step at a time and it’s so positive to see what they’ve managed to do.
