TOMS Review...Upon Request!


In my previous post, I featured my new purchase of TOMS shoes. As per a request (a good ol' shout-out to blondie-lox!), I will provide my official TOMS review!

I wore them for an afternoon, in which I ventured around a grocery and department store:

PROS:

CONS:

  • Made in China - I didn't exactly look this up before purchasing, but I am really a supporter of locally made, or even continentally made goods. I was a little surprised by this. I also like to support other countries, but only when I know that the money is also contributing to say a village that is trying to sustain themselves.
  • Upon first wear, there was a bit of a rub on the top of my foot, but was no longer a hinderance after a bit of wear.

Hope the review helps!

I leave you with a pic that popped up in my e-mail inbox from the lovely Anthropologie. If I had millions, I think this is the first place I would go.



Until tomorrow...

I was really surprised that they were made in China...super odd! That's not the impression I had, but then I honestly didn't research it either...I just assumed.

Earth shoes are also made in China. I to was surprised, but read on their web site that they are being socially responsible, paying a fair wage + providing support to the community. I think I'm OK with that.
