TOMS: More than just shoes
You might recognise the name TOMS and picture their shoes instantly in your mind but did you know that they are so much more than just shoes?
TOMS was started by founder Blake Mycoskie in 2006 after he visited Argentina and witnessed children growing up without any shoes and the effects of this. Desperate to make a difference through entrepreneurship, Mycoskie created the “One for One” business model where the company would donate a new pair of shoes for every pair of shoes sold. By 2013, the company had donated more than 10,000,000 pairs of shoes to people in need
The story and success of TOMS is something that we love and gives us an even bigger sense of pride to be one of their stockists in Greenes Shoes. You can read more about TOMS and Mycoskie here and have a look at our stock here.
