We Love Our Toms Shoes!

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!

First off, how can I resist a post on a shoe called “Tiny TOMS” on Tiny Oranges?!  And as I found out last Friday at the Tiny TOMS launch party at Neiman Marcus in Fashion Island, the shoes may be tiny, but this company has a very big heart.

For those of you unfamiliar with TOMS Shoes, they are a company dedicated to giving back.  With their “One for One” movement, for every shoe bought a shoe is donated to a child in need. To date, TOMS Shoes has donated over 400,000 shoes to kids around the world.

As if this was not enough to sell you already, the styles were sooooo cute!   They are available in sizes 2-13, from pre-walker to age 4 and select styles are available in size 10 – 13.

Here we are with the founder of the company, Blake Mycoskie, at the event.

He started the company after a trip to Argentina where he befriended kids and realized many had no shoes to protect their feet.

Can you imagine children in developing countries surviving without shoes??

And many can’t go to school without them.  To give a child a pair of shoes is giving them protection for their feet and sometimes opportunity.

It all starts with an idea.

Completely inspiring.

And mamas, know what, they have CUTE styles for you too!
