TOMS Shoes began with one main purpose:  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 mission transforms our customers into benefactors, which allows us to grow a truly sustainable business rather than depending on fundraising for support.

Why shoes?

Many children in developing countries grow up barefoot. Whether at play, doing chores or going to school, these children are at risk:

  • A leading cause of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted diseases, which can penetrate the skin through bare feet.
  • Wearing shoes also prevents feet from getting cuts and sores.
  • Children can’t attend school barefoot because shoes are a required part of their uniform.

    AHHH! Love TOMS!
    I believe they are finally available in Canada and that’s what I’m getting with my next pay cheque!
    Shoes with a real purpose, and they don’t compromise style. Amazing idea.
