The TOMS brand was established in 2006 with an idea to create stylish shoes and match every pair purchased with a new pair of shoes for a child in need. Since that time, TOMS has given more than an incredible 60 million pairs of shoes to children in need, throughout 70 countries in the world. Aside from their footwear range, they also operate similar programs to help with eyewear and optical health, clean water, safer birth services and education in developing nations throughout the world.
There’s little doubt that purchasing a TOMS item is going to have an impact further on down the line, making the world a better place. But what about the shoes? Well, in short – they’re great!

Vegan footwear with a conscience
TOMS create a huge range of vegan footwear, which is something not seen too often in the modern marketplace. So, for those of you living a vegan lifestyle with your food, you can also extend it to your footwear.

TOMS vegan shoes come in many different styles, with so many options in the canvas slip-on range. With plenty of funky designs to match your individual personality, you’ll find something you love right here. There’s also vegan sneakers, alpargata styles and espadrilles. The variation in colours, patterns, shapes and sizes is so diverse, just like the world TOMS are helping every single day.
Casual canvas shoes for everyone
If you’re not sure what alpargatas and espadrilles are, you will after browsing the TOMS footwear range. Essentially, they’re a casual, slip on canvas style of shoe. And they’re super funky! They’re built for comfort and are obviously an eco-friendly option. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg in the TOMS women’s footwear range.
There’s so many canvas slip-on style shoes to choose from, particularly in the variety of colours and patterns available. Many of them feature TOMS signature Ortholite technology for added comfort, and these shoes really fly in the face of any assumptions that ethically sourced and created shoes can’t be high quality.
With so many funky patterns, style and shapes, everybody can find something they will love in the TOMS canvas shoe range, and you can even search for full vegan options too.
Boots and heels
While it isn’t a major part of the TOMS range, you’ll also find some boots available, both in closed and open toed options. If you love suede boots with functional wide heels, look no further than the TOMS range. The suede used is ethical and high quality, and the designs of the shoes look really great.
In both boots and heels, you’ll find some completely suede options and also some perforated styles – nice and airy for those hot summer days! If you’re looking for something a little more formal for those summer occasions, there’s even cut-out sandal designs with a heel, meaning you can wear them with your best dresses for any occasion. TOMS prove once again that looking great doesn’t need to have a big impact on the environment!

Women’s sneakers with a difference

Definitely not TOMS – in fact, they’re proving exactly the opposite. From simple yet funky canvas sneakers to boardwalk platform sneakers, there’s a great range to choose from.

These purpose-built, durable sneakers are made with comfort in mind, and did we mention they look amazing?
There’s so many cool prints and designs, not to mention the merging of fabrics like denim, canvas and suede to create a truly unique look that even the most fashion-conscious woman would be proud to wear.
