TOMS Shoes

TOMS Website

In 2006, TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and saw that they didn’t have adequate shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes for a child in need. One for One.® In 2011, the One for One model was expanded and TOMS Eyewear was launched. With every pair purchased, TOMS helps restore sight to a person in need. One for One.®

What began as a simple idea has evolved into a powerful business model helping address need, and also advance health, education and economic opportunity for children and their communities around the world. And this year, we’re thrilled to launch TOMS Roasting Co. With every bag of coffee purchased, TOMS will provide one week of clean water to a person in need. One for One. ®

TOMS has given more than 35 million pairs of new shoes to children in need and helped restore sight to over 250,000 people. We are incredibly proud of and humbled by this milestone, and more excited than ever to see how the continual evolution of our Giving can positively impact communities in need around the world.

These high quality comfortable shoes are the reason this was started, they started a movement, a movement that continues to grow  and expand daily in their company and the world. I am a part of that movement, are you?
