Toms was founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie. The company is based out of Santa Monica, California. They manufacture primarily lightweight shoes of the Argentine design. Mycoskie was on the second season of The Amazing Race with his sister. Shortly after the season ended, he traveled to Argentina where he was inspired to start a company that would give back to the community. He was inspired by Argentina style and decided to start a company that manufactured lightweight shoes. For every pair of shoes sold he would donate one pair to a child in need. He called it the One for One Movement. So far there have been over 1 Million pairs of shoes donated to children in need.

Toms is a lightweight shoe that offers comfort and supports a great cause. Find out about the One for One Movement and Toms shoes.
Mycoskie felt that children were being kept out of schools and were being subjected to too many diseases because they did not have shoes to wear. He wanted to make a difference in the world and provide shoes for those children. Shoes are a very basic thing and an easy solution to disease prevention.
He has recently started a line of sunglasses too. With every purchase of a pair of sunglasses he will donate medical care or prescription glasses to a child in need.
Every year Toms hosts One Day Without Shoes. This is a day where people go without shoes to understand what it is like for children who do not have shoes. Last year more than 250,000 people participated. The event usually takes place in early April.
