I think the idea behind TOMS shoes is great! They are really trying to make a difference in the world one step at a time (pun intended) through fashion. It's wonderful that these shoes have really caught on as a major trend among hipsters.
If I knew nothing about the concept behind these shoes though and caught sight of them, I would probably hate them. Frankly, I think they're kind of ugly. I am probably a horrible person for admitting this, but from a striclty fashionable point of view.....not so much.
I'm fairly certain I cannot be the only person in the world that feels this way, so that makes me think that this is an even more exciting trend. Why? Fashionistas and Fashionistos are not buying these kicks because they are made out of the most gorgeous and rare materials or because they elongate the leg or because they are constructed using the newest and greatest technology. No. People are buying these shoes because it helps others, and really, that makes these shoes the most beautiful ones I have ever seen.
Sorry Jimmy. Sorry Manolo. Sorry Christian. Tom's the new man in town.
