With every one pair you purchase, TOMS Shoes will give one pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. TOMS was founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie, inspired by one trip to Argentina where he saw extreme poverty and health conditions, as well as children walking without shoes. That’s when he recognized the traditional Argentine alpargata shoe as a simple, yet revolutionary solution. He quickly set out to reinvent the alpargata for the U.S. market with a simple goal: to show how together, we can create a better tomorrow with social good and the one for one shoe movement by leading a company to take compassionate action today.
