TOMS is an American company created in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie.  He traveled to Argentina and befriended children in a village who had no shoes to protect their feet.  This is when TOMS was formed to match every pair of shoes purchased with a new pair of shoes given to a child in need: "One for One."  TOMS started as a company and has become a movement.  They have grown and expanded around the world and also support and inspire individuals to make positive changes in their communities and schools.  TOMS are known for their alpargata-inspired Classic slip-on shoes.
