I love TOMS shoes!!!

When DH and I went to New Orleans for spring break last year, I found some shoes that I have literally not taken off since. They are called TOMS and are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. The first pair I bought was red (so cute!) and I wore them so much that DH bought me another pair a couple weeks later. The premise behind this company is the reason I bought the shoes, and I am sure you have seen the commercial for VISA with a good looking curly headed man promising a pair of shoes sold means a free pair donated to a child in a third world country. Below is a history of TOMS shoes:

The video and commericals makes me cry everytime, especially the children of Argentina who aren't allowed to attend school unless they have shoes since parasites most commonly enter through the foot. They are a bit expensive but I promise the are ridiculously comfortable and so cute too! I wear them with shorts, jeans, dresses, skirts, whatever, and they look cute with everything (I think anyway :) The new fall TOMS in cord are out and I am dying to buy a third pair, but need to save for my pilgrimage!!!

Buy a pair, help a child in need, look cute, and be comfortable!!!


  1. I just read about this guy in the latest Costco magazine and have been hoping to find a pair somewhere!

  2. Whoa, I need to get some!! Thank you!! I have never heard of them.

  3. Everytime I see those shoes I think of you! I so wish we could have found the wedges on the way to see dr. death! ;)
