100% Happiness

Tom's at Trinoma
I've never bought shoes from TOMS. And it's not because I think they're expensive or I don't like them. Unfortunately for me, the local distributor doesn't carry the women's styles in my size. I like their outdoor shop in TriNoma mall and its colorful mural, but I especially love their One on One Movement: for every pair you buy, TOMS gives a pair to a child in need.

And in case you're wondering about the title, it's what TOMS calls its guarantee. I can guess that that's what the kids feel when they receive their free pair of shoes. After One Day Without Shoes and we get home to clean and rest our cracked and tired feet, I think that's what we'd feel too.

A very nice mural which appears to represent the kind of company which is TOMS. Too bad they can't fit you...maybe if you asked them to carry your size they would do it. I like their plan of giving away shoes to needy children!

The mural is beautiful, but what the company is doing for needy children is even more beautiful.

A great mural and an even greater act of charity!

good business model, though their shoes aren't the most durable. i wish they could expand their product line to include more conventional kicks.

there's a similar retailer that does the same for glasses, Warby Parker. They make a great pair of prescription shades. not sure if they ship overseas though:(
