TOMS Shoes used to be founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie. The shoe is a unique slip-on design comprised of clean lines and lightweight fabrics in vibrant colors and prints. TOMS used to be founded when Blake used to be inspired on a travel to Argentina by the traditional, rope-soled Argentine “alpargata.” He used to be struck by the poverty and health issues of the country, and set out to reinvent the alpargata for the U.S. market, and in doing with the intention to accomplish one goal: Making life more comfortable for those without shoes. To realize this purpose, Blake made a commitment to match each pair of TOMS purchased with a donation of a pair to a child in need. It’s simple: If you purchase a pair of TOMS, the company will give a pair to somebody in need on your behalf. All over its first year in business, TOMS sold 10,000 pairs of shoes, and Blake returned to Argentina to lead his first annual Shoe Drop All over which he donated to the children who had inspired him. TOMS Shoes are now to be had in more than one colors and fabric combinations for men, women and a recently introduced line for children, aptly titled Tiny TOMS.
