Toms shoes - 04-10-2010 , 06:41 PM


I'm really wanting a pair of Tom's. I have known about em for a long time but never had the money. Now i do but idk which pair i want. What do you think?

www.toms.com

For those that dont know what they are: when you buy a pair they donate a pair to kids that cant afford shoes. A one for one if you will

Those look very cheap and uncomfortable. I'd commend you for buying them just to have a pair sent to a child who has nothing better, but I'd never actually wear them. Maybe just hang them from the wall like a trophy.

They are cheap, literally, at less than $60 on average. They are, however, well constructed and robust enough for daily wearing. They are modeled after traditional gaucho shoes know as espadrilles or alpargatas, and as such are made for use/wearing. I will concede one point to you. The classic TOMS doesn't do much in the way of support for my abnormally high arch and my size 13 foot. The padding they have in the shoes is surprisingly nice though. I want to try on a pair of caldones to see if they offer more.


@cap mstr shotgn: I edited your thread title for you. TOMS is short for "tomorrow" referencing the 1 for 1 business model Blake has. Buy a pair today, give a pair tomorrow.

I like the idea but I think they look absolutely horrible. Then again, I am extremely picky about shoes.

I was that way for awhile, but since the girlfriend now has two pairs they've grown on me.

They look very European to me (which would explain the Spanish name). I wouldn't wear them, but I can imagine them being... well ventilated.

Very faddy, scene-like.
Whatever style you're going for I suppose.

Then you ought to pay for the shoes, then have them send both pairs to a needy child.

So you mean donate to them like a charity. I did donate to them. Last year i gave em $100. I just think that if i support toms and have stickers on my water bottle and my car i should have a pair.

Why? Isn't giving to needy children enough? I mean, we've already determined that as far as shoes go, Toms kinda' suck anyway. I'm not calling you out or anything, I'm honestly curious.
