It all started in 2006. Blake Mycoskie was inspired during a trip to Argentina to start a different kind of shoe business.
In Argentina he observed extreme poverty, adverse health condition and children walking without shoes.
An idea came to him: the traditional argentine alpargata shoe could be simple but revolutionary solution. Later he founded “TOMS” (a derivative of the word ‘tomorrow’ and the idea that we have a better tomorrow) and made a commitment to give a pair of new shoes to child in need for every pair sold. On their own the shoes have a limited ability to change a life and can become a powerful tool in helping create opportunities for better feutre.
Five years later, Tom’s launched it second product, eyewear. With every pair of TOMS “One for one” eyewear purchased there will be given help to save or restore the eyesight for people in developing countries.
I finally got my first black canvas TOMS so to help you find the perfect pair I choose 8 very different designs to fit 8 different personalities. Although you can totally rock any style, A footwear choice can tell a lot about you- Which one is your favorite?
