Toms Shoes came to be after founder Blake Mycoskie's visit to South America. He was inspired to create a company that would give a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair sold. The simple but stylish shoes are manufactured in Argentina in a carefully monitored sweat shop free environment, using environmentally friendly practices. By the end of the year, they plan to donate 200,000 pairs of shoes to childeren around the world.
