Tom Shoelery

June 23, 2009

Have you seen that cool commercial about Toms, the company that will donate a pair of shoes for every pair you buy from them? (It’s really too bad I did not know about this before I started college… I could have been more generous with my shoe obsession.) What a great project and to top it off, the shoes are pretty neat. I mean, who wouldn’t want these…

Red Wrap Boots! Yes, they are $98, but how cool, especially for those of us with abnormal calves.

Well, of course there are other colors (gray, black, navy, rust, chocolate brown and olive), but you know how partial to red I am!

Toms does have more than wrap boots…

Pink Tiny Toms are $34.

More well-known Toms look almost like slippers. Here’s the men’s version of their popular shoe ($44).

Regardless of how you feel about the look of the shoe, it’s a great idea and wonderful way to give to those who are less fortunate.

    Tom Shoelery! Very clever title!

    I not sure I’m with you on this one Kate. I’m going to have to disagree with the coolness factor on these. We usually have pretty similar tastes, I always like what you pick out, and I would definitely let you shop for me. But this one, I’m not so sure about. They kind of look like red ace bandages. Like you sprained both ankles pretty bad. Please don’t take offense. I don’t think I’ll be getting this pair, however there are a bunch of other really cool ones.

    Della, Kate actually injured her ankles pretty badly recently and is looking for stylish ways to keep them covered. Thanks for highlighting a really sore (no pun intended) subject, though; that’s very helpful of you.

    Della, seriously? You don’t think Ace Bandages are the new thing??

    Yes, I go out on a limb sometimes, but I don’t think I fell out of the tree! But, thanks for telling me. No offense taken.

    I miss you, by the way!
