If you missed Booth Moore’s story about TOMS shoe founder, Blake Mycoskie, in yesterday’s Los Angeles Times, click here. My [awesome] acupuncturist has long been a fan of these slip-on canvas shoes with rope soles, purchasing hers at Uncle Jer’s in Silver Lake. They’re also available at American Rag. Recently I dove in and got a pair of University Navy Rope Sole TOMS. After all, these are shoes with a conscience: for every pair you purchase, TOMS will donate a pair of shoes to children in need as part of their ONE FOR ONE mantra. Check out these TOMS on tiny people in need, below. I love this company!
