Give New Kicks To Kids In Need


Buying shoes incites euphoria in lots of women. Whether clogs, Crocs, or Jimmy Choos, gals the world over acquire a hop in their step and glimmer in their eye when rocking a new pair. This familiar rush of excitement struck today upon purchasing a pair of casual kicks perfect for apr├Ęs-yoga, en route to Fenway, or strolling Newbury Street on a sunny spring day while window-shopping . . . for more shoes, perhaps.

Yet, the reason for my retail-induced glee was only marginally attributed to the actual design of my new footwear. Of course they're fashionable, in a beach bum sort of way, but what's infinitely cooler is that these shoes have "sole." Buy a pair for yourself or a friend (man, woman, or child), and the company who makes them will donate a pair to a child in need. Check out the website for Toms Shoes, where you can even watch a video of a recent "shoe drop" in Argentina. A purchase this sensible and stylish is sure to put a spring in your step!
