A fashion empire may begin with the simplest of ideas.
Blake Mycoskie was traveling through Argentina and was troubled by the many children he encountered that didn’t even possess a pair of shoes. He decided to start a very simple, but unique business that would sell shoes and give a pair to a child in need with every pair of shoes sold. It enabled consumers to add to their wardrobes while seamlessly making a charitable contribution as well. He has now expanded to a one for one concept with eyewear as well.
What a cool concept right? But let’s be honest, the shoes have to be cute as well.
Luckily, Toms has created a few fun styles in varying heel heights. I am really loving the wedges and am debating on a pair. I’m definitely pulling the trigger now because Toms gives you $5 off a $25 order with code RMNSPRINGTOMS (through March 31) and there is free shipping off every order (through April 1st). See my cashback link below as well for the site that provides the highest cash back.
Now is definitely the time to pick up a new pair of spring shoes and you’ll be donating a pair to a child that needs them as well!
Here are my favorite shoes (I’m thinking of basic strappy wedges or perhaps indigo metallic ones?):
Blue ikat wedges, TOMS, $69
Sand brushed metal strappy wedges, TOMS, $140
Serena womens wedges, TOMS, $69
Village stripe wedges, TOMS, $69
Indigo metallic linen womens wedges, TOMS, $69
Ivory glitter womens wedges, TOMS, $80 (supposedly a popular choice for brides!)
The classics are good shoes when you don’t want a lot of height. They also have special designs including artist designed shoes and campus color shoes! I didn’t go to any of the schools, but like the colors!
Turquoise metallic linen womens classics, TOMS, $58
Tyler Ramsey splatter red women’s classics, TOMS, $68
UNC women’s campus classics, TOMS, $48
