TOMS vegan shoes

18 Aug

In 2006 I was introduced to TOMS shoes by my (and Kate’s) all-time favorite band HANSON.

Hanson has been working with TOMS shoes since the company started up. For every pair of shoes they sell, TOMS gives a pair of shoes to a child in need. ONE-FOR-ONE. every time you buy TOMS a kid in Africa gets shoes. Done deal.

Hanson lead mile long, bare-foot walks before every show for several concert tours to raise awareness of the children in need “Would you walk a mile in someone else’s shoes even if they didn’t have any?” Hanson also donated a dollar for every person who participated in The Walk. They walked along side fans, walked enough miles to go around the world (TWICE) and donated money for medical care, education, drinking water, and shoes!

Why is this on a Vegan blog?

VEGAN SHOES!!!

It’s so hard to find a great pair of vegan shoes. It’s not so hard to be mindful of the things we eat, but sometimes we just don’t think about what is in the soles of our shoes.

 

TOMS vegan shoes contain no animal bi-products. They even have organic shoes. I have owned classic TOMS and vegan TOMS and they are both super super comfortable. TOMS shoes are pretty much single-handedly responsible for this shorty being finally ok with her height enough to wear flats 🙂

Now you can benefit yourself, animals, the earth and an awesome charity all in one pair of guilt free shoes! I have been wearing TOMS for years and I can’t say enough about them. I love them, I want to buy every style they come out with. This post was inspired by my catalog that just came in the mail!

and TOMS vegan styles

Take The Walk is about giving you simple tangible ways to take action against the HIV/AIDS pandemic and poverty in Africa. A small donation, the purchase of a pair of shoes, the download of a song or simply taking a one-mile walk.”

    I really love those bright patterns and they’re so comfy.

      I haven’t had any super bright TOMS but I think next time I order I’ll get a crazy color or pattern! They’re so cute.

    Very cool idea! Hooray for Hanson for being so mindful of others. Kerri, great blog! I keep meaning to say something but I have been so incredibly busy with my book coming out in just two weeks now. But I love the recipes and the whe organic idea. I try to stay vegan as much as possible but it can be tough with two other family members who want meat :). As soon as I can I will send you some of my favorite recipes. I have some great ones!!

      Hey Eryn! great to hear from you. I had no idea you were interested in vegan food. that’s awesome!
      Mike isn’t vegan so it’s probably not as easy as it could be, but he mostly eats meat at work. We don’t buy it for the house. so that helps. at first I was making two meals one foe him and one for me, but now I think I have won him over a bit and he likes my vegan cooking more 🙂
      Good luck with the book launch!!!

    Great that you found awesome vegan shoes! I usually have to order vegan shoes…. but (even though I’m a girl 😉 ) I don*t need new shoes that often, so it’s okay!

      I order my toms online because they never have my (tiny) size in stores. I don’t buy shows very often, I wear my TOMS every day, so I probably wont buy anything until these wear out 🙂

        Same with me, I don’t buy new shoes until the old ones wear out… and that usually doesn’t happen that fast!
