Not just a fashion statement, Toms shoes keep on giving

Toms shoes are unique in that while they are one of the hottest trends of the past couple of years, they are also a brand that contribute a huge amount to charity.

Toms shoes run what's called the 'One for One' scheme, whereby for every pair of Toms shoes sold, the company give a pair of shoes to a child in need from a third world country. This is one of the main reasons Toms shoes are so popular; who wouldn't want to look good and give to a good cause at the same time?

It’s a scheme that has made the brand extremely popular. Sometimes it’s hard to know where your money is going when you give to charity, but with the ‘One for One’ programme, you know exactly how you’re helping.

Toms Shoes for Everyone

While Toms shoes have only been popular in recent years, they already have an enormous range of colours to choose from. You can have a pair in nearly any colour, and there are also patterned varieties available. Some brands have even collaborated with Toms shoes to create seriously stylish footwear.

Some of the most popular styles include:

  • The striped ‘university’ style
  • Tie-dye denim
  • Perforated ‘mesh’ style
  • Indo-print pattern

Toms shoes are generally made of the same fabric as traditional espadrilles, but they also have shoes made from cord and even denim. They are ideal in the summer as they are both light and breathable, and look best with shorts and skirts. They’re so light in fact, that they can be easily carried around in a handbag.
