I received my first pair of Toms Shoes from one of my best girlfriends for my birthday.
She is passionate about her Toms. She got me this cute little pair of classics…the Ash Canvas…in a great neutral grey I can wear with everything.
And now that I have a pair I see what I have been missing! Moms – these shoes are a MUST buy! They are the BEST run around town flats because they are just SO DARN COMFORTABLE!
I actually wear a 9 1/2 now post kids (pre kids 8 1/2) – how is that possible?! She got me the 9 and I went to take them back to Nordstrom to exchange because they felt tight. But the salesman told me that they stretch out so I should stay with the smaller size and I am glad I did.
After wearing them and breaking them in a few times they now fit perfectly and they did stretch out the perfect amount.
While we were walking out that day we happened to pass the kids’ shoe section where Emma spotted Toms in her size. Yes, they also make (THE CUTEST) Tiny Toms!
She is big into matching with me and her sis these days (slight obsession) so she pleaded with me to see if they had a pair in her size. The salesman told me they are so popular they were out of a lot of sizes and colors but he would check what they had in her size.
When he came back out, he asked, how would grey do? And her eyes lit up.
So my little mini-me and I are loving, I mean LOVING, our matching Toms.
With Toms One for One Movement, for every shoe purchased, a pair of shoes goes to a child in need.
I can’t help but think about it almost every time we put them on. That somewhere in the world, a child is blessed with a pair of shoes themselves because of it. Makes me feel good.
That alone is reason enough to march on out today and buy yourself a pair!
