Toms Shoes

I just found this photo, by Brandon Long, on Flickr:

It's amazing how everyone has gone mad for Toms shoes. It goes to show that comfort and function always win out. (Although, like most status symbols, they're expensive!)

Here's the pair I want:

Happy Friday, everyone. May you have lots of time to wear comfy shoes this weekend.

The only thing about Toms shoes is that they wear out in about two months. I had a pair last summer and a pair this summer and they've already kicked the bucket. It's all nice and good that they donate a pair of shoes to a needy child but I hope the shoes they donate are a little sturdier!

I have been considering the herringbone ones myself, I also love the plaid pair from the collab w/ The Row. They seem so comfy!

They're nice but mine wore out very quickly as well. As for donating--they are doing more harm than good. (For anyone who sees this & thinks: oh they're good...nope).

Nice photo, tho;

I don't know about comfort and function winning out. TO an extent maybe, but I think people just like to feel good or show off that they bought TOMS to help a needy child.

But, I do love MY Toms. ;p Super comfy!

Thank you for your post about TOMS and helping to spread the word! For those who think they do more harm than good, check out a video from a recent shoe drop:

My shoes have lasted a little longer than the others... I still have a pair I've been wearing since February and I love love love them.

Just grabbed a pair of the wedges for work too... most amazing shoes with a heel ever.

I found a pair in the street last year. didnt wear them until this summer. i may wear them a lot, but i think they are terrible shoes. i wouldnt say even trust the company.

but damn if those wedges dont look amazing on girls. i also typically dont like wedges

Although I must admit I'm not particularly fond of the look of the shoe, I do love the animal print lining some of them have.
