Shoe Connection is proud to partner with TOMS and be a part of the One for One Movement. The Spring/Summer 2017 range of TOMS alpargata and sneaker styles brings the latest on-trend prints, patterns and colours where with every purchase, TOMS donate a new pair of shoes to a child in need. We are excited and proud to display TOMS both in store and online, while simultaneously improving lives across the globe.
How It All Began – The One for One Movement
In 2006, American traveller Blake Mycoskie met children in an Argentine village and noticed they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS, and kicked off the One for One movement. Since then, TOMS have given more than 35 million pairs of new shoes to children in need, positively impacting communities around the world. Exploring other methods of charity and change, TOMS have since expanded the One for One movement to sell Eyewear, Roasting Co. Coffee and Bags which in turn supports sight restoring treatments, clean water facilities and safe birth services.
The new season collection of TOMS see the Classic Alpargatas updated with polka dot prints, stripes and intricate patterns in versatile colourways. The Deconstructed Alpargata enters the scene with a casual and low-cut silhouette that is perfect for the weekend. Hitting the streets with sneakers, TOMS reveal the Lenox and Del Ray lace-up designs that are holding their own in the sneaker community.
