Toms is a shoe brand derived from the Shoes for Tomorrow, a non-profit program that wants to provide shoes for the kids of South America.
Blake Mycoskie, a 30-year-old designer from California, created them after the Argentine's alpargatas, a kind of inexpensive, lightweight and comfortable shoes locally popular.
For each pair of Toms purchased, a pair is given to a child in need.
It’s the “two for one” technique put at a higher level. If you want to make a cool shoe purchase, think about this one.
