TOMS Shoes

never have i wanted a pair of shoes as badly as these. now if you're anything like my good friend Petri you'll probably also be thinking along the line of old wheat bags on the farm...... but if on the other hand your're normal there's a fashionista in you, then feast your eyes on these beauties. not only are they a fab shoe, but i really got drawn to them because of their one-for-one business model. for every pair you buy, they give a pair to a child in an underpriveledged community. i received their documentary dvd a few months back and to see the faces of the kids, many of whom have never had shoes in their life before, made me want to buy a pair in every colour. (although i wanted to do that before i saw the dvd too :)

so what do you think? old wheat bag or classic comfort & style? check out more styles at TOMS Shoes website

(all pics by my dearest in the USA who bought them for me:)

I believe in the Sun,
even when it is not shining.
I believe in Love,
even when I do not feel it.
I believe in God,
even when he is silent.
