It is extremely humbling to witness brands who give back and share their success with those in need. What’s even more humbling is to be introduced to a brand whose whole foundation was created to do so…
New Zealand meet TOMS…
The TOMS philosophy is simple, each time you purchase a pair of TOMS shoes, TOMS will provide a pair of new shoes to a child in need – ‘One for One’, every time.
In association with programmes run by TOMS’ Giving Partners, new shoes given to children in need protect the child’s feet from cuts, infections and diseases.
A pair of shoes can enable a child to attend school and instill confidence in them – it shows the child that they are important.
TOMS works with more than 75 Giving Partners around the world, who share the needs they see on the ground in each country.
It’s a fashion trend that’s far from a fad!
Since launching in 2006, TOMS has provided more than two million pairs of shoes to children in need, in communities all over the world. Now TOMS global momentum has reached New Zealand.

And if you're concerned that these may be a little more fad than fashion, don’t be.
TOMS has graced the feet of some of Hollywood’s finest such as Mila Kunis, Bradley Cooper, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Kristen Bell, Charlize Theron, Chris Pine and many more.
