Buy of the Week: TOMS
As fashionistas, it is easy to lose sight of who is really behind our clothes or shoes – especially who makes them and who benefits from our cash. TOMS shoes, an acronym for ‘Shoes for a Better Tomorrow’, is a brand you want to get involved with and one that tells you the exact process of creation to foot. Better yet, for every pair of TOMS shoes your purchase, the people at TOMS will send another pair to a child in need.
Yes – that is One For One. Each shoe is made in safe, honest and well-paid factories so there is no child labour or poor wages like many other brands invoke. You may not realise, but many of the worlds worst diseases and injuries can come from being barefoot and children all over third world countries are having to suffer walking miles with no shoes.
Not only is this an amazing cause, but the shoes are super stylish; coming in a variety of styles, colours and patterns including the classic coloured canvas to glitter or metallic. Celebrities are also rocking the awesome shoes including the boys of One Direction who wore them on their visit here.
To purchase your very own pair and send another to a needy child, visit TOMS.com or visit Sitka in Newmarket, Auckland – the only retailer in NZ!
