In Tom’s I Trust

October 29, 2008

I have already begun making my New Year’s Resolutions, and one of them is to get every one of my friends to buy a pair of TOMS shoes.  If you’d like to help me get started on that resolution, check out these simple and practical “black canvas TOMS” which I recommend.

My friend Sarah commented that she couldn’t envision me wearing these canvas creations, to which I understood her statement, but for TOMS, I will create destinations to wear these shoes!  If you’d like to know why I am so crazy about TOMS, read their mission statement and I am sure you’ll feel the same way.  Let me know, or better yet, post a photo of you in your TOMS.

Inspired by an Argentine shoe with a hundred year history and the continent’s poverty and health issues, TOMS was created with a singular mission: To make life more comfortable. TOMS accomplishes this through it’s ultra lightweight design and the company’s commitment to match every pair purchased with a donated pair to a child in need…there are no complicated formulas, it’s buy a pair of TOMS and the company gives a pair to a child on your behalf. The vibrant colors and patterns in the debut collection depict Blake Mycoskie’s life changing experiences in his travels to South America where he embraced the lifestyle wholeheartedly and therefore gave back by creating TOMS – shoes for Tomorrow.

You’re with me, right?
