TOMS Shoes is an American footwear company founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie. If you haven't already heard their premise, "With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need." It's a pretty remarkable concept. A concept that was inspired while visiting Argentina as a competitor on The Amazing Race. The shoes are designed after traditional Argentine alpargata styles worn by Argentine farmers for over 100 years.

I received my pair of Purple Tangier Vegan TOMS about a week ago.  Hoping to have a new picture for you in 'The Feet Project' photo album, I've had to send them back for an exchange in a smaller size.  If you are thinking about ordering a pair of TOMS and have medium width feet, then ordering in true size should do you just fine. If you happen to have narrow feet like mine, then I recommend ordering a half-size smaller.

Coming up next Thursday, April 8th is One Day Without Shoes, where you are encouraged to go a day, half day, a few hours, etc. without wearing shoes. This means playing, biking, working in your bare little tootsies. I spent the day today in attempt at toughening up my dogs by walking around town. Now if I can think of some place that will allow me to enter their premises barefoot. Nature will. What do you think you'll do?
