buy a pair of shoes and do a good deed.

I think I just bought a pair of shoes that are going to change my world.

I was practically sold based on their mission (above) but then I started reading the reviews. Everyone, and I mean everyone, has said they're the most comfortable shoes they've ever worn. Between that and the philanthropic mission - I couldn't resist.
So today, my friendly UPS man brought me my Toms... and I can't take them off my feet.
Meet my beauties...

Hello lover.
I know some of you may never understand... and probably think these are the ugliest things you've seen... but I'm in love. I'm already searching the site for my next pair.
Do you own a pair? Do you love?

I've been wanting a pair for forever. I think I'll be asking for them for my birthday. Glad you like them!

So let me get this straight...you don't like UGGs but you like those?!

Hmmm. Sorry but those are heinously fugly, in my opinion anyway. Why do they look dirty?? Not sure tom is helping by giving those away. Haha.

K sorry i'm done.

Oh wow. That is an awesome mission. I wish they could open a branch here, so that I could help do my part.

Ooh, I hadn't heard of these shoes before! They're not right for me (I'm an MBT lover!) but they might be just what my little old lady boss has been looking for. She has a lot of pain in her feet due to a medical condition and her favorite line of shoes was recently discontinued! Do you think these would help if it hurt to walk? I'd love to give her your opinion of these shoes :)

I absolutely love them! I see California boho chic or even Brooklyn hipster when I see them. Sign me up!

this is fantastic. sooo happy my morgan jumped on the bandwagon. i own 4 pairs and the cause is what its all about. they have so many wonderful patterns and yes, they are SOOO comfy. better than crocs and uggs for sure and no cause attached to those.

I'm off to browse the site now because I like to support companies who give to charity like this. I don't think they are the most attractive shoes ever, but I value comfort... so I'm with Bananas on this: I love my F-Uggs, and I'm sure I'll love my Toms too!

I love the mission of Tom's, but casual shoes just aren't my style . . . I am a heels type of girl! However, I was strolling through a shoe department the other day and came across gold sequined Tom's shoes!!! Now I think I'm a convert, and I'm gonna have to go get a pair for summer.

Question--do they run true to size? Like is it safe to order them from the website in the size you typically wear?

I have been meaning to get a pair but wanted to wait until the little one arrived in case my feet grew. Your post reminded me I wanted a pair. Ordered mine today!

ok that is a SUPER mission they have going on! but i hate the look of them. NO OFFENSE!!! i am so sorry! but i could POSSIBLY be swayed if they really are comfortable. my feet are so tired and so picky, and they just hate to be uncomfortable!

That is so cool, they really do look super comfy. I am going to tell my sister about these, they would be right up her alley!
