I just bought my first pair of Toms Shoes and a pair for my 3 1/2 year old. For every pair of shoes that you buy, they donate a pair of shoes to a child in a 3rd world country. I just provided two kids with new shoes. Check out their website at www.tomsshoes.com and read about their mission. I have been thinking about buying a pair for myself for a while now and I love the whole point behind buying from them but who needs another pair of shoes. Lord knows that I have plenty and I don't need to spend any money... But, I have a serious shoe fettish that I haven't been able to indulge in a really long time and this seemed like a great reason to give in to my new shoe cravings. I bought the silver ones for me and a pair of camo ones for my son. I almost bought him shoes at The Gap last week that were on sale for $20. These were $28 (I think) and another child gets a pair too. Seriously, this is so cool. Go buy a pair!
