TOMS' Higher-Priced Line Quietly Launched: Let's See What $140 Gets You...
August 23, 2012
A few months ago the blogs were a-flutter with news of TOMS’ plans to launch a higher-priced line, called TOMS+, but it turns out the luxe 12-piece collection quietly launched this morning without so much as a whimper. Weird.
Anyway, after the brand’s successful collaboration with The Row, we knew the folks over at TOMS had a hint of luxe in them. While some of the shoes are exactly what you’d expect from the original “buy a pair, give a pair to someone in need” company — canvas slip-ons with pleated cap toes — other designs take on a whole new silhouette. The Cobalt Montage Strappy Wedges just might be the be-all-end-all summer-to-fall transition wedge, and the Denim Slip-Ons could replace your ratty loafers as your wear-with-anything flat.
As expected, prices range from $104 to $140. Though WWD originally reported that TOMS+ would be available at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and American Rag, it looks like each retailer only picked up a few styles. We’ve rounded them all up in the slideshow above.
