TOMS® began as a simple idea while Blake Mycoskie, founder of the company, was traveling in Argentina in 2006. He witnessed the hardships faced by children growing up without shoes and wanted to help, so he created TOMS, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a new pair of shoes for a child in need. And the idea of One for One® was born.
TOMS also dreamed up the alpargata-inspired Classics shoe that comes in a variety of materials like canvas, tweed, wool, burlap, mesh and crochet. And each style features their signature classic toe stitching, elastic v-panel, suede leather footbed, and a flexible rubber outsole. These shoes are made for all-day wear whether you are simply walking the city streets or traveling the world.
While the Classics have been a favorite for years, TOMS also offers a variety of other footwear styles for men, women, and kids. Women’s styles like the Desert Wedge, Nepal Boot, Del Rey sneaker and TOMS leather booties have become fast favorites. And their fashion winter boots are perfect for city or country walks. TOMS men's shoes like the Paseo, Chukka Boot, and Brogue styles offer a laid-back yet handsome look in a variety of durable fabric uppers and reliable rubber outsole that will last for years to come. TOMS kids footwear collection has all the same qualities of style and durability as the adults with a variety of loafers, boots, sneakers, and flats to choose from.
The TOMS Bag Collection reflects the traditional textiles seen worldwide and each tote, crossbody, and hobo bag offer both fashion and functionality. Their durable canvas, soft suede leather, and felt materials offer long-lasting durability, while the roomy, organized interiors make them ideal everyday use. These bags are so functional, you can take them to the farmer’s market or use them as your traveling companion!
TOMS Eyewear features a variety of looks from wayfarer-inspired sunglasses, sleek aviator frames, to superstar-inspired oversized styles. Many of the sunglasses have 100% UVA/UVB protection and polarized options are available as well. TOMS provides prescription glasses, medical treatment and/or sight-saving surgery in thirteen countries, so with every purchase, you the customer, provide the opportunity to restore sight to a person in need.
What began as a simple idea has evolved into a powerful business model, and with every TOMS product you purchase, TOMS will help a person in need. One for One®.
Cute but super inconsistent sizing. I own these in the grey chevron in the same size and they fit perfectly. The cheetah was about a full size larger in the exact same size. I also tried the black on in person and they were too large. I reccomend ordering your size and a size down and keep what fits best.
These run small.
Got these shoes for my husband after he saw me wear mine so often. He's super picky with shoes and he loves these. They're comfy right out of the box.
These are my go to shoes. Easy to slip on and they pretty much goes with anything. I can spend all day walking in these shoes. I don't wear them with socks but people with sweatier feet might find it uncomfortable after prolonged wear. Perfect for my wide feet.
It is truly TOMS. Very comfy and soft for my foot. Just slight fit tight for upper, but maybe take time to adjust. Good!
I absolutely LOVE these shoes, they are very good quality, look a lot nicer/more dressy than the regular cloth TOMS because of the suede, and I feel like they are great for Fall/Spring weather! Couldn't be happier with my purchase. I am normally an 8 in most shoes, but in TOMS I go a half size down to a 71/2 because they do stretch!
I wanted these shoes to work so badly! They're as cute in person as they are in the picture. Several years ago, I owned a pair of TOMS that fit me like a glove, and I was hoping these would replace them. Sadly, either my feet have grown even wider over the years or TOMS have made their shoes narrower because I couldn't even get my foot inside the shoe! If you have wide feet, these shoes will most likely not work for you.
I love Tom's classics SO MUCH! I don't know if it's the cute print on the inside, or the way the toe folds over just so, but they make me smile! I have them in red and I also just got the ash color, which goes with everything. These shoes are SO comfortable, I can walk in them all day. I will be sad when the snow comes, as I don't think they will be good to wear in wet conditions, but I can look forward to wearing them again come spring!
I wish these shoes came in 1/4 sizes. The 8.5 was a little too snug for my preference. The length and width were small. They probably would have stretched out over time but I didn't want to take the risk and sent them back. The pattern is really fun, I'll keep checking back to see if a size 9 is available.
Felt a little snug for the first several days but now they are perfect. I'm an 8.5/9 and went with the smaller size because my heel slipped out the 9s. The footbed on the Avalon is very comfortable and much more supportive than the classic canvas Toms. I taught in these shoes all day without any discomfort. Very pleased! Recommend for someone looking for a casual, cute, comfort shoe with more support than typical slip on.
