In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie wanted to help shoeless children across the globe, so he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. The program is dubbed One for One. While I have been a fan of the company, I have to admit, I was not a big fan of their shoe styles.
So it was with great joy that I received an e-mail from the company announcing ballet flats will be arriving in spring. I was so happy I almost kept it to myself to make sure I could get a pair, until my friend Jessica announced she, too, had heard the good news. To ensure you receive a pair before they inevitably sell out, sign up for their newsletter. You will receive a notice when they are launched and will be the first to purchase a pair.
I have my eye on gray, black, pink and animal pattern ones. What about you?
