Company Crush: TOMS


I LOVE shoes, especially TOMS shoes. I discovered them one day during my lunch break while living and working in NYC. They were so adorable, cotton mocassin type shoes with bold cream and pink stripes.

I immediately went online and looked up TOMS and found out that I had also just bought a pair of shoes for a child in need. Such a cool company, they actually donate one pair of shoea for every pair sold, how cool is that??

"TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we're all about. The TOMS One for One business model transforms our customers into benefactors, which allows us to grow a truly sustainable business rather than depending on fundraising for support." - toms.com

Here is me in my TOMS (brian told me a joke while he was taking the picture which is why my face is all scrunched up)

so next time you need shoes, go to toms.com and buy a pair for a person in need!

  5. OMG Liz ! Are you becoming an Argentinian !!!!
    Did you notice that they have the Argentinian Flag on the side (or back).
    Those shoes are called "alpargatas" and they are a clasic in Argentian. He actually came with the idea after traveling there.
