TOMS: A One For One® Movement

To date, TOMS Shoes has donated over 35 million pairs of new shoes to children in need thanks to their One for One® promise!

In case you didn’t know, with every pair of TOMS shoes you purchase, the company will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need. This promise dates back to the earliest beginnings of the company in 2006 when the founder Blake Mycoskie met a group of children in Argentina who didn’t have adequate protection for their feet. You can help give back to children in need when you buy a new pair of TOMS, so it’s really a win-win every time! We’ve got a nice selection of TOMS that have just arrived for you to choose from. Here are a few of our favourites:

1) Alpargata Weave

The Alpargata Weave is a more colourful take on the classic Alpargata flat.


This classic slip-on is all the more eclectic with a mixed colour palette and a rope-wrapped sole. It also has a canvas sockliner, removable insole, espadrille sole, and custom TOMS rubber outsole.

2) Ibiza Sandals

If you need a comfortable summer heel, then the Ibiza Sandals are an excellent option.


Picture these as your new dancing shoes, with a 3 ½-inch platform heel and OrthoLite insoles for extra comfort. The casual, summery textures give the Ibiza day-to-night versatility. Upper straps are made of suede with decorative stitch and a platform cross-strap sandal has a slingback upper adjustable ankle strap with custom buckle for fit. The
OrthoLite X40 high-rebound cushioned insole is designed for all-day comfort while the lightweight platform wedge wrapped in stacked leather with custom textured German outsole completes the design.

3) Olivia Flat

For absoolute perfection, check out the deconstructed ballet-style Olivia Flat


The Olivia flat has a heel pull tab for easy on/off and crepe sole for maximum versatility and comfort. The upper half is made of black suede while the insole is microfiber and the outsole is made of rubberized faux crepe-texturing.

4) Avalon Slip On

The Avalon Slip On is back in cotton grey – a lovely VEGAN option!


The Avalon is designed for long walks and explorations when you’re on your feet all day. It has all the slip-on goodness of the Classics but with an added custom rubber cupsole. The comfort insole is also remove. Comfortable, durable and easy.

5) Sunrise Slip On

Another vegan option – the Sunrise Slip On comes in either Black or White with a bow.

In black heritage canvas, this sneaker/mule hybrid is effortlessly cool  with tan vegan leather trim and a white cupsole.

6) Monica Heel

The Monica Heel is a limited edition sandal that you can wear for all different occasions!


Pretty enough to wear to a wedding, yet casual enough for lunches around town. The rope-wrapped heel is approximately 3 1/2″, just high enough. A small-batch, limited edition shoe.
