I've always thought that cute shoes made a difference. Need proof? The classic fabric show from TOMS not only is the greener way to outfit your kids (no leather involved). The classic model of TOMS was taken from an Argentinian shoe--now the company has blossomed into an eco-friendly staple. The brand has expanded into kids shoes and has never lost sight of the core mission--getting shoes to those who need them.
Here's what makes TOMS different. The company was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we're all about.
So to help you shop for this cause, we're highlighted a few spring shoes. First, we love. Butterfly Tiny Tom's (above; $29). For the lads, the simple classic Ash canvas Tiny Tom's ($29) is perfect for school, playground and looking cool on weekends. Tiny Toms have a Velcro strap--making them easy to take off and on.
All the cute styles and shopping is paying off. As of September 2010, TOMS has given over one million pairs of new shoes to children in need through Giving Partners around the world. Here are a few photos of the deliveries in action. To learn more about the initiative visit www.toms.com/our-movement/
