Need Toms Shoes at a discount? This is the guide for some of the best alternatives, anywhere online. I've decided to list some websites that seem to consistently have the lowest prices. Below are the websites that I recommend.
This is a company with a conscience and it was founded on the promise that for every pair of shoes sold, they will donate a pair to a child in need. Founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie, the company has donated over 140,000 pairs of shoes to children in developing countries, and plans to donate another 300,000 pairs in 2009.
This company makes mostly shoes, although it does also offer a small line of t-shirts, hats, and baby items with the Toms logo and brand message. Its shoes are constructed of fabrics such as canvas and corderoy. They also offer vegan shoes. This brand can be purchased online from the company website and alternatively, Bizrate/Shopzilla.
Given the first name of the company and its activism, I wondered if it was the similar named out of Maine. That said, what drew me to this website was the vegan shoes. If the only reason they made vegan shoes was to arouse curiosity, I think that it still works as an idea. Additionally, I should mention that this is one of those businesses that seems to be as much about its activism as it is about business and the website is organized accordingly. It is the first online store I've seen where you are able to shop by such criteria as cause which includes, nutrition, job creation, etc.,. Even if you have no need of shopping at this website, it's worth a looksee for its innovations.
FROM THE BLOGS:
You expect that after researching so many labels and designers, that reading about the apparel industry might become a little stale, and in truth it can be. That's why it's so fascinating to read about this designer who has decided to go into coffee business. The connection between coffee and fashion escapes but it's so refreshing given that what you tend to hear is about fashion designers and musicians. What is also refreshing is that for every bag sold, someone in an underdeveloped country will receive a week's worth of fresh water. I don't drink coffee, but I'm looking forward to this exception.
