Toms shoes are not only a fine example of simplicity but of ethics too. The Toms footwear collection are all about easy fashion and doing the right thing.
The founder of Toms, Blake Mycoskie, has been an entrepreneur since college, and turned these skills into a business venture with an ethical attitude. On a trip to Argentina, Mycoskie witnessed how the alpagarta shoe was worn by most men, women and children in the country. These simple canvas shoes inspired him, as did the spirit of the Argentinian people, who had very little and carried on with their lives regardless.
Blake Mycoskie hit upon a great idea, using these casual canvas shoes to help the children of Argentina. He took the design of the alpagarta shoe, and reinvented it, making it a desirable, comfortable shoe for the US market and elsewhere. While doing so, he also set up the One for One movement. This charity ensures that for each pair of Toms shoes sold, a pair is donated for children in Argentina. More than 600,000 pairs have been given, highlighting the success of the brand and the good work that One to One puts in.
The success is unsurprising, as Toms canvas shoes are the perfect antidote to complexity and over-thinking design. Each pair of Toms Original Classics shoes are made to an excellent standard without sacrificing any of their simplicity. The durable canvas upper has the signature elastic V shape for firm fitting, and the suede insole offers extra comfort thanks to added cushioning. These great shoes give the ideal.
Toms canvas shoes have an excellent, free and easy, feeling that looks great with jeans and shorts, and are perfect for the summer. Order a size up though, as these shoes are fitted a little tightly. You can get your new pair of Toms Original Classics at Jeans Store now!
