As a college student, it’s no surprise that I saw TOMS on the feet of many of my classmates. When I first laid eyes on them though, I was utterly perplexed. I mean, they aren’t the most attractive shoes I have ever seen. But people don’t wear these shoes because they think they are fashionable. They wear them because they are the most comfortable shoes they have ever worn.
They are soft and cushy. Plus they apparently have a lot of arch support. They may not look like it, but they make excellent walking shoes (perfect for those long treks across campus). But this isn’t even the best part!
TOMS has this really cool charity program, which began when the company was founded in 2006. For each pair of shoes purchased, TOMS donates a pair of shoes to a child in need. And since many children in developing countries grow up without owning a single pair of shoes, you can understand what an important cause this is. I can’t imagine going even an entire day without shoes, can you?
