A few weeks ago, I was watching TV when a commercial came on for Tom’s Shoes. I was so intrigued by the idea of a company giving a way a pair of shoes for each pair sold, I immediately looked them up online. Not only do they have a full shop on their Web site, they’re also in retailers such as Whole Foods and Nordstroms.
While they certainly look a bit different than most footwear, the shoe bed is really comfortable and does a good job of supporting my arches (for a casual shoe). I love the crazy designs, including herringbone twill, hand-painted masterpieces, and boots that wrap up your leg like an ace bandage (perfect for larger- or smaller- than normal calves). Try ’em out for yourself!
