Put Your Best Feet Forward

Brad and I went shoe shopping this last week, and I was excited that he too has now hopped on the TOMS bandwagon.  If you are unfamiliar with TOMS shoes, they created a one for one movement.  With every pair of TOMS shoes you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoe to a child in need.  There are so many different styles from slip ons to lace ups to heels and more.

I was happy to purchase (and this is the reason they are on my blog today) "earthwise" shoes.  These shoes are considered sustainable and as an added bonus, vegan friendly.  The shoe is made from either pesticide-free cotton or a unique twill featuring hemp and recycled plastic bottles.  Then the sole is made from recycled rubber.


Giving children the new shoes they need and taking it easy on the planet.  What could be better?

I encourage you to check out this video about TOMS and their mission and see the good they are doing.

  1. Grace, I love TOMS! I had heard about them last year, but only found a pair just after Christmas in Calgary and couldn't buy any then. I love the fact that somewhere a child in need gets a quality pair of shoes b/c someone bought a pair for themselves. So great! I would encourage anyone who can to buy these.
