During a trip to Argentina in 2006, Blake Mycoskie befriended a group of children and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. With a desire to help, he created footwear brand TOMS that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.
But that isn’t all they do. Through your purchases, TOMS also helps provide sight, water, safe birth and bullying prevention services to people in need.
Blake’s simple idea has grown into a global movement. TOMS Shoes have provided over 60 million pairs of shoes to children in need, TOMS Eyewear has restored sight to over 400,000 since 2011 and TOMS Roasting Company has helped provide over 335,000 weeks of safe water since launching in 2014.
If all that wasn’t enough, TOMS shoes are comfortable, versatile, stylish, affordable, low maintenance and come in a variety of shapes, colours and styles. What more could you want?
Come in and try on a pair today – you’ll fall in love with them!
