In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS®, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.™
Realizing this movement could serve other basic needs, TOMS® Eyewear was launched. With every pair purchased, TOMS® will help give sight to a person in need. One for One.™
Our movement is made up of many parts, including One Day Without Shoes and World Sight Day, our annual days to raise awareness for the global issues of poverty and avoidable blindness and visual impairment.
In addition to the alpargata-inspired Classics, TOMS® offers a variety of footwear styles for men, women and kids. From everyday men's shoes like Paseos to fun and flirty Strappy Wedges, we are passionate about both the fashion and compassion we offer.
Our eyewear is inspired by iconic and vintage style, from wayfarer-inspired Classics to pilot frames to historic oversized lenses, and every purchase provides our customers the opportunity to restore sight to a person in need.
