Toms shoes

18 November 2010

Took me long enough, but I’m ready to get on the Toms bandwagon. Granted, it’s a pretty good bandwagon to get on: for every pair of shoes purchased, Toms will donate a pair of new shoes to a child in need. The only decision left? Which color to buy.

Should I go glam, with either the gold herringbone or gold glitter?

Or should I go more basic, with either the navy or ash?

Thoughts? Do you have a pair of Toms? Do you like them?

I REALLY want a pair! I'm having the same dilemma! One of my friend has the gold ones, and they're adorable! I would go with either those or the navy blue! She said they're really comfortable, and true to their size! Good luck!

I vote for herringbone and navy. You NEED both. Plus you'll help 2 kiddo's instead of 1. ;)

I have the ash, the gold glitter and a pair of striped ones, too. LOVE them!

I second Becka :)
But if I had to choose, I'd say gold herringbone. You can be comfy and a little glam at the same time…and that's usually impossible! Plus it has a cute lining. I'm a sucker for cute lining.

gold herringbone. They look cuter and they have the matching sole. That is what has held me back from getting them is that I don't like the mis-match sole, they can look like house-shoes that way!

Nicole, now that you point out the lining, I have to say, I kind of love the elephants with the navy ones! And Charity, I never even noticed the sole… good observation!

I think the navy ones for sure, and if you get a second pair, the herringbone pair. The elephants in the navy lining are really too good to pass up…

I have the gold, and I love them! Though they don't really match with a lot of things (you have to go simple when your shoes are disco balls).

So I got a red pair – and they are fantastic. I've worn Toms all around the world — Seattle, San Fran, Paris — and they will be on my list to take to China in January. When I travel, I tend to walk everywhere, and these are a must!

Natalie — very true re: shoes being disco balls. Duly noted :) Thanks for the insight!
