For the shoe lover with a conscience, Toms are a product meant to inspire more than just compliments. Recently spotted on the feet of fashionista Sienna Miller, Toms are an ideal way to make a fashion statement with political and environmental undertones.
After witnessing the rampant poverty in Argentina, creator Blake Mycoskie was inspired to design a unique shoe based on the footwear of its workers. Toms are made from natural materials and sold with the promise that for each pair purchased, the company will donate a pair to a child in need.
Sold in a wide range of colors and styles, including sailing and yoga, these shoes successfully marry the trendy design and eco-friendly concepts so often at odds with each other.
