What: Tom’s Shoes
Why: Have you ever wanted to do something good for the world? If you find yourself wishing you did more for the betterment of society, then you owe it to yourself — and the children of the world — to check out Tom’s Shoes.
The concept is unbelievably simple. You buy a pair of shoes, a needy child gets a pair. Inspired by a classic Argentine design, Tom’s shoes are made to be comfortable, casual and lightweight. Most importantly, though, the goal is to help provide a healthier future for children in poverty-stricken areas.
As for the style factor, these shoes come in all sorts of colors and prints as well as solid hues. They even have a Limited Edition shoe handpainted by Tyler Ramsey, featured in the September 2006 issue of Vogue. Made 100 percent sweatshop-free, the shoes boast natural materials such as local canvas and leather, making them as good for you as they are for the environment.
