As the original One for One company, we’ve at all times been in business to give a boost to lives. Our classic canvas Alpargata is the shoe that started it all
TOMS Shoes was once 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 was once founded when Blake was once inspired on a commute to Argentina by the traditional, rope-soled Argentine “alpargata.” He was once 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 every 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 someone in need on your behalf. Throughout its first year in business, TOMS sold 10,000 pairs of shoes, and Blake returned to Argentina to lead his first annual Shoe Drop Throughout which he donated to the children who had inspired him. TOMS Shoes are now to be had in a couple of colors and fabric combinations for men, women and a recently introduced line for children, aptly titled Tiny TOMS.
