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®.
Absolutely adorable. The left shoe is too tight. If I wear for more than an hour it starts to cause a blister on top of my foot. Perhaps if you have narrow feet this wouldn't be an issue. I have normal width feet and ordered a size up.
One shoe fit perfectly, another shoe was 1/2 size too big. I had to return these shoes which is frustrating because I like the style. This happened in a different t pair of Tom’s and I thought I was going crazy that only one shoe was too big; but I guess it’s Tom, not me.
Very comfortable shoe
Loved the shoe. Very well made and very attractive. Just did not fit my foot .
The Avalon is definitely my new favorite Toms slip-on. It’s so comfortable, I can stand in them all day and I don’t get foot pain like I do with many other flats. They have excellent padding in the sole. I also appreciate the removable insole. I usually wear a 5 or 5.5 and the 5 here fits me perfectly with no socks.
I love my Toms! These are the perfect shoe for slipping on and running errands
I suffer from many foot/toe problems, but my Tom's shoes are always my go to shoes and have been for several years now. They are always reliable in their fit and comfort, and so have had several pairs over the years. Love them!!
I have narrow feet and have always been able to wear Toms - classics, winter boots and rain boots but these were very wide. I loved the color and tried 2 different pair thinking that it was just a fluke but the second pair was even wider than the first. These were the denim washed blue, removable inner sole called Vegan. Maybe these shoes run a lot wider.
I love the look and feel of these shoes. They are my first pair of Toms, and likely not my last. I ordered my regular size and they fit perfectly, no gaping anywhere or rubbing against my heel. I highly recommend these shoes!
