ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES

A DAY WITHOUT SHOES 019

ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES has proven to be a HUGE success here in Columbia! We had so much fun working barefoot in our TOMS tees on. Tori went down to participate in the Barefoot Walk on Mizzou’s Campus and took lots of photos for you to enjoy! We’re also excited to announce that we have 5 new TOMS colors coming next week—Natural, Red University Stripe, Green Tie-Dye, Navy Blue & Olive Green. We are also expecting Yellow University Stripe and Yellow Batik in the next few weeks. If you are interested in any other colors that we don’t have in stock we are happy to order them for you and we are also offering special order for MEN’s sizes. We’re so excited that so many people are getting behind TOMS and are so proud to be the exclusive local retailer for TOMS shoes. Be the change. ONE FOR ONE.

TOMS Shoes hopes to inspire people to continue their support after April 16th by sharing the One for One mission: For every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of shoes to a child in need.

Shoes are a simple answer to obstacles many face everyday:

* Fact #1: In developing nations, children walk for miles to food, clean water and medical help.
* Fact #2: Cuts and sores on feet can lead to serious infection.
* Fact #3: Often, children cannot attend school barefoot.
* Fact #4: In Ethiopia, approximately one million people are suffering from Podoconiosis, a debilitating and disfiguring disease caused by walking barefoot in volcanic soil.
* Fact #5: Podoconiosis is 100% preventable by wearing shoes.
