The Market: TOMS Wedges

17 May

TOMS Kenya Stripe Wedge, $69, toms.com

Since we have to come down off of our stilletos and platform heels at some point, we love TOMS shoes and have been fans for a long time. Which is why we are wondering why we didn’t know that they have released a collection of wedges! (too wrapped up in the Galliano and Balmain drama, we guess)  For those who are not familiar with TOMS, it is an amazing shoe company started by Blake Mycoskie after encountering children in Argentina who did not have shoes. He launched TOMS in 2006 in order to donate a pair of shoes to children around the world in need for every pair of shoes sold. Called the “One for One” program, it is among the first charity/retail relationships of its kind that directly benefits people in need, without ambiguity regarding where donated funds are going.  We love the super comfortable classic TOMS for criss-crossing the city in, but we are completely smitten with these chic little wedges, and for only $69, we’ll take a pair for every day of the week this summer. See the entire TOMS collection, including the wedge line, at www.toms.com. You can also take a look at the video clip below to learn more about the company and the children it helps. We dare you not to shed a tear..
