Looking down at your feet at this moment you may have shoes on, may have shoes with socks on, or just socks on. Maybe even possibly nothing is on your feet at all. For most children throughout the world in developing countries, the basic necessities in life such as shoes are rare for them to have. Having shoes on your feet is a vital necessity, especially when survival comes into play for these children.

Recently I have noticed a TOMS Shoes trend; on the feet of people all around me. Friends, or random people displaying each and every color, and pattern you could imagine. Most shoes companies can’t take credit for being fashionable, and standing for a cause as well, but TOMS Shoes can.

What makes TOMS Shoes a charity worth investing in you may ask? From my research and observation it is their “one for one” movement. For every pair of shoes purchased from TOMS Shoes, the company will donate a new pair of shoes to a child in need, in a developing country. Why not invest in a shoe that has a two for one deal; style and a philanthropic purpose.

For those of you unsure of the style choice, there is an array of options to choose from for both men and women, as well as children. The styles have a wide range and vary from the original to the wedding shoe selection. Aside from the different options in style is the plentiful amount of colors, and patterns that can go with any wardrobe.

This cause is an incredible one, and it allows many to reach out in a philanthropic way, while also investing in a comfortable shoe. Once the snow melts away and spring comes back along, I myself will be able to trade in my winter boots for a pair of TOMS, and wear them with philanthropic pride, and style.
