TOMS shoes has completely redefined the meaning of a shoe “drop.”
TOMS Shoes is the first brand to donate one pair for each pair sold; “One for One.”
TOMS recently teamed with Element to create the “One for One” shoe x skateboard concept. For each TOMS x Element shoe x skateboard sold, one will be donated to a child in need outside of Durban, South Africa.
In October of 2009, a select group of individuals will be lead to South Africa to deliver Element skateboards and pairs of TOMS Shoes to underprivileged youth.
