While traveling in Argentina in 2006, TOMS Founder Blake Mycoskie witnessed the hardships faced by children growing up without shoes. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a new pair of shoes for a child in need. One for One®. What began as a simple idea has evolved into a powerful business model that helps address need and advance health, education and economic opportunity for children and their communities around the world.
They've given over 85 million pairs of shoes to children in need, teaching 75 million lessons. Since 2006, people like you have helped us achieve this amazing number – and it's leading to bigger and better things, like giving different types of shoes based on terrain and season, or creating local jobs by producing shoes in countries where we give.
In addition to the alpargata-inspired Classics, TOMS® offers a variety of footwear styles for men, women and kids. From everyday men's shoes like Paseos to fun and flirty Strappy Wedges, we are passionate about both the fashion and compassion we offer.
