* TOMS have a One for One program, which donates shoes to children in need.
* Classic TOMS are canvas or linen slip-ons in a variety of colors
* These five pairs, which are sneakers and boots, depart from the classic style
Although simple in design, TOMS have become very popular in the last ten years. The company is known for its One for One program, which donates a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair of TOMS purchased. Not only does the company support a great cause, their classic style is incredibly comfortable and fashionable.
TOMS for men are generally made from canvas or linen and boast a classic toe stitch detailing that make the shoes long-lasting. In addition, these shoes are known for their plush lining, the elastic v-panel for easy on and off as well as the molded dual density footbed for underfoot support. The mixed rubber outsole mean these shoes are flexible and lightweight.
While we all love the classic TOMS style, the company has recently made an effort to move past the slip-on category. Today, TOMS produces a huge variety of shoes from sneakers to nearly formal wear. If you haven’t checked out their extended range, keep reading. You won’t believe these five pairs of shoes are from the same do-good TOMS company.
1. TOMS Cabrillo
Super comfortable sport shoes like the TOMS Cabrillo can be hard to find. These shoes were designed for long-lasting, everyday wear and sport a light midsole for added comfort as well as shock absorption. In addition, the durable rubber outsole and the textile upper mean these shoes are built to last through months and months of use.
2. TOMS TRVL LITE Low
Everything about these shoes has been designed for foot comfort on the go. The TRVL LITE Low sneaker boasts a laid-back look complete with fabric laces, metal eyelets, a back pull and TOMS detailing on the heel. The footbed is made from a molded, cork-covered compound that’s super lightweight, so you can wear these shoes all day with few problems or throw them in your luggage without adding too much weight.
3. TOMS Arroyo
Rather than traditional canvas TOMS, the Arroyo was inspired by athletic wear. The rubber outsole with its superior traction and flexibility pays homage to other basketball and tennis sneakers. Plus, the mesh-lined footbed is covered with an OrthoLite Eco X40 high-rebound insole for all-day support, whether you’re at work or taking your daily walk. These shoes were really made for your on-the-go lifestyle.
4. TOMS Preston
Who knew TOMS could do more than everyday wear shoes? These Prestons proves the brand is capable of moving into the dress shoes market. The sleek, classic look of these shoes make them a good match for work outfits or a night out. The welt detail adds sophistication, but the breathable textile lining and antimicrobial footbed will keep your feet comfortable and healthy.
5. TOMS Chukka Waterproof
If you’re more of an adventure type, check out the TOMS Chukka Waterproof. These weather-ready shoes are waterproof with a gusset tongue to keep out dirt and debris. The woven textile lining also adds warmth and comfort, while rubber outsole provides durability and traction. Finally, the molded footbed makes the shoes breathable and comfortable, making this pair an ideal addition to any wardrobe.
