I got Tom’s Shoes this past weekend for Christmas. Don’t understand how that works? Well, first you go to Nordstrom’s to try on a pair and know what size to put on your list for Santa to get. But then the employee in the shoe department gives you sad puppy eyes and wants you to buy them so she can get commission. Then your mom goes “OKAY” and then you ask to just go ahead and wear them (with sad puppy eyes) because they will be rendered useless at Christmas when there’s snow on the ground.
Then you get a Christmas present in November and you’re not allowed to pout when there aren’t more presents under the tree on Christmas.
I see a lot of Tom’s Shoes on campus. I think it’s really great that such a charitable article of clothing has become stylish. If you didn’t already know, when you buy a pair of Tom’s Shoes, you’re actually buying a pair for yourself, and a pair of shoes for someone in need in Africa. HOW. COOL. IS THAT?
It just makes you want to buy tons of pairs! And they’re so, so comfortable. I’m glad that consumer Americans can actually do some good by over-indulging in shoes. Like me!
Here’s Kass modeling her Tom’s Shoes!
Oh, and that old scooter we got her for her birthday that she only mildly enjoys by riding it around the apartment.
So in case any of you were on the fence about getting Tom’s Shoes, I highly recommend them! Super comfy, and you can make a difference in somebody’s life by getting them. The only group I haven’t seen wearing them a lot are guys. Come on, dudes. They’re slip-on. You don’t have to tie your shoes anymore. What more could you ask for?
