TOMS The Shoes Of TOMorrow by Juan Rangel
They’re not the prettiest shoes you’ve seen, but why does everyone seem to love them? It’s pretty simple, TOMS are not only very comfortable but when you wear them it shows that you care about things bigger than yourself while remaining fashionable.
TOMS is a slip on shoe made of canvas, denim or burlap. Their designs are simple and only vary in small details like the material of their sole, the print in their fabric or if they have shoelaces or not. The prices of a pair of TOMS ranges from $40 to $100 (being a little overpriced for the product), however there is a lot more to them that just their innovative designs or comfortability.
“One for One” is the vision behind the shoes business plan. For every pair of shoes sold, one pair is given to a child in need. It’s simple but this business plan has been very successful as a lot of people have bought the shoes only to support the cause.
Personally I have to say I love my TOMS, I own two pairs so far but I’m planning to get another pair soon now that summer is almost here. They’re stylish, comfortable, look great without socks (which is perfect for summer) and support a great cause.
