All about Toms brand shoes
In the fashion world, trends come and go. Women love shoes and funky shoes occasionally make their way to the top. Toms brand shoes have been very popular for at least a few years in fashion; lots of cheaper alternatives are available everywhere you look. This hub talks about everything about the authentic Toms brand shoes that most people seem to love.
What shoes do they offer?
When people think of Toms brand shoes, they automatically associate the brand with the simple slip on shoes. However, Toms brand is currently selling several different designs in addition to the classic slip on shoes. Ballet flats are available in a variety of colors and materials (leather, suede, canvas and burlap). Boots, sandals, wedges, cordones are some of the other styles available on the website.
Charity shoe company, one for one
The signature message, one for one, on the insole of shoes is the main selling point. Lots of people want or feel obligated to support charity through their actions. For each pair of Toms shoes you purchase, the company will give one pair to a child in need in a developing country. In addition to fueling your shoe needs, you can also feel happy that you are helping other people at the same time.
What I love about these shoes?
Toms are very comfortable. They don't require a break in period like most other shoes. These shoes are comfortable from day one you buy them. My feet are pretty sensitive but these did not give me a single blister. They come in a variety of colors. You can go with a basic pair that will match lots of things you have in your closet. You can also opt for a crazy pair with glitter or tribal print or crochet material. The Toms ballet flats are some of the most comfortable flats ever created by men. They are extremely soft and cushioned on the inside. I can't even believe how amazing they feel on my feet. The design is very cute as well.
What I don't like about these shoes?
They are expensive, period. Most of the classics styles are not made of very high quality material. Yet they are pricy. I guess it's the price for two pairs of Toms because they give a pair to a child in need. The canvas shoes are not good for rainy days. I'm lucky because rain is rare in Southern California. So, Toms are pretty much all season for me. The Toms classics shoes are ugly when you first look at them. However, the design seems to grow on people when they look at it more.
Can I get authentic Toms for cheap?
Yes, there are two places where you can get them for a discount. Nordstrom rack is a good place to find discount Toms shoes of various styles. I have seen wedges on sale for a significant discount off of retail. The company have warehouse sales where the shoes are significantly cheaper than retail. For a pair of classics, you will pay $20 instead of $54. The warehouse sale is only a few days out of the year. If you are a big fan of Toms shoes, it's important to check for the days and location of the sale near you.
