When Blake saw the traditional alpargata in Argentina, he recognized a solution to the shoeless children enduring hardship around him, and started TOMS. Argentinians have worn this style of shoe for generations, and now you can too. Enjoy this rebirth of a tradition with TOMS Canvas Classics.

With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need
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.
