Last week I went down to London to attend an event hosted by TOMS at their flagship store. If you’re not already familiar with TOMS, they sell a fantastic range of canvas shoes and their whole ethos is ‘One for One’ – meaning that with every pair of shoes bought, they will provide a pair for a person who needs them. They have given more than 70 million pairs of shoes to those in need so far, that’s pretty amazing isn’t it?
Where they first started off selling shoes, they now sell sunglasses, bags and also serve food and drinks.
So not only do they provide shoes to third world countries, they also help with lots of other essential needs. If you buy a pair of sunglasses they will donate to help restore somebody’s eyesight, buy a coffee and money will go towards sanitising water and if you buy a bag, you will be helping to provide trained people and equipment to help women during birth.
Not surprisingly, they are also supporting WildAid in its conservation programs dedicated to the giant panda. We all love a panda but did you know that there are fewer than 2000 giant pandas left around the world?
I loved seeing their whole range of designs, as I didn’t realise that it was so extensive. I’ve never owned a pair before but my husband has always loved wearing them.
The panda camouflage range are designed for the whole family to be kitted out in. Ranging from really dinky sizes up to adult, with a range of slip on and velcro, so there is a perfect fit for everyone in the family.
This vegan Classic Alpargata features a print inspired by the giant panda and is limited edition.
Check out the mini pair. I can’t wait to see my daughter in a pair.
Here is a close up of the print.
I spotted some adorable little shoes and you would be hard pushed not to find a style you liked for your little one in here.
There was also some sparkle which always catches my eye, as I love my shoes to be a bit glittery.
The dip dye styles were one of my favourite styles for Spring too.
There is a choice of so many colours and all in such gorgeous shades for Spring and Summer.
This bag was popular with everyone that saw it!
I love the fact that there is a little pit stop to grab some baked goodies and drinks while you are in there. This is such a fab idea and of course you’re helping towards a great cause while you’re in there. The industrial feel looked really cool too.
I spied this on the way up the stairs in the store. The toilet is also up there located behind a door that is designed like a red telephone box. Very cool!
So if you haven’t seen their latest range, then I’d definitely have a look…
