Everybody already loves TOMs Shoes, the hip-yet-charitable shoe line launched by traveler-cum-designer Blake Mycoskie.

Now the company has taken the concept even further–or, shall we say, higher–with these long-awaited wedges:
Made from the same earth-friendly stuff as its slipper-like sister, each pair of Toms Calypso Wedges($69.00) will also buy shoes for a needy child. But unlike the originals, these shoes are really cute: the open toe and woven wedges in rainbow of colors and patterns make your wardrobe as well as your conscience (not to mention that needy child) happy all summer long.
