TOMS Espadrilles and Shoes
TOMS are not only a stylish shoe for a variety of occasions, but also a very socially responsible footwear option. The concept, ‘Shoes For Tomorrow Project’, was thought up by Blake Mycoskie in Argentina and has since become a global phenomenon. The brand name derives from the title of this concept.
The idea behind the brand is ‘One for One’; to provide a pair of shoes to a young person who is most in need every time a pair of TOMS is purchased. 35 million pairs of shoes have been provided to children by the company since 2006.
Mycoskie was spurred on with the project with his findings that around 40% of Argentina’s population were bare footed. The entrepreneur has since gone to launch TOMS sunglasses, bags and a coffee company.
