I recenlty disvoered TOMS shoes. TOMS are simple, canvas design slip on shoes that has become recently popular on many city streets. The graphics are retro bold with an early 90′s feel. Somehow, I’ve noticed everybody from soccer moms to unemployed young people sporting the shoes. And I see why – they’re cute, practical, and match most outfits also available in Mens and Youth sizes. Second most important about TOMS shoes is not only do consumers purchase these comfy shoes and get to wear them in leisurely style, but with every shoe purchase TOMS sends a pair to a child in need in countries such as Africa, Ethiopia, and Haiti. In 2006 TOMS sent 10,000 pairs of shoes!
I decided to get the “classic” Black Women’s Glitter TOMS ($54). The glitter is also available in sliver and pink.
I have heard to order a size down from your regular shoe size because the canvas material tends to strech as you wear. But with the sparkly TOMS the material is a litter bit more study and do not stretch as much so I stuck with my original size. 9.5
Im interested in seeing how these hold up. I would like to wear them everyday to work because of their comfy in sole to added support. I have heard of other buyers big toe popping out in the front yikes!
With my TOMS purchase this is what I got…
Black Glitter Classics size 9.5
a TOMS sticker (to spread the word)
A TOMS mini canvas drawstring bag
a second pair to be sent to a child in need
