TOMS is finally here in the Philippines guys, and I can't wait to get my hands on one. Btw, if you have been wondering what is TOMS, then lucky you for this is the day. The American footwear brand was founded by Blake Mycoskie in Arlington, Texas back in 2006. His company designs and sells lightweight shoes based on the Argentine alpargata design. With every pair sold, TOMS donates a new pair of shoes to a child (in a 3rd world country) in need. The brand has given hundreds of the canvass shoes in the US, Argentina, Haiti, South Africa, Guatemala and South Africa. The designs have been featured in Teen Vogue and Vogue.
On our shores, the brand is distributed by Nothing but Water and Shoe Salon stores in TriNoma. Prices starting from Php 3125 and up depending on the design. Hey if you ask me, it is hitting two birds with one stone, having a comfy weekend shoe and participate in the brand's charitable campaign.
These are the ones that caught my heart and eyes!
