“One For One” the famous Toms quote! Toms are very cute shoes and they serve a great purpose. What are Toms? that’s probably what you are thinking. Toms is a very unique shoe, as you can see in the picture to the right the red shoes that the man has on, those are Toms. As I said before Toms is a very unique shoe, my reason for that is because they come in all different types of colors and styles. Also Toms is a unisex shoe , which means females and males can wear them. Furthermore toddlers can also wear them, I think that is so neat.
Blake Mycoskie, who is he? Well Blake is the founder of Toms, Toms movement, “The One For One Movement” is about how in 2006 Blake traveled to Argentina and found out that the children there had no shoes to protect their feet. He wanted to help so he created Toms, his shoe company, and for every person that bought a pair of Toms he would match it with a pair of Toms for a child in need of shoes. Now, how nice is that?

Now I am going to begin talking about how not wearing shoes can cause a problem. Many things can happen when you walk around barefoot. First off, you can get cuts, abrasions and bruises from objects off of the ground. Also going barefoot you can catch a disease called podoconiosis. I would put a picture on here but it is very disturbing. I can describe it instead: it’s a debilitating disease which causes swelling, repeated ulsers and deformity, especially in the legs. That’s why I feel I am very lucky to have shoes on my feet because as I research all of this information and see pictures of the disease podoconiosis, I feel bad for the people I see in the pictures. The pictures make me fill sick to my stomach. One For One Toms Shoes, that is why I feel they are a great company to work with. How about you go buy a nice pair of Toms shoes and Toms will match a pair to a child in need!
