Shoe Shopping with a conscience

Now what better excuse than buying a pair of shoes than are not only comfortable, fashionable and affordable but will also help others? Look no further than TOMS shoes- for every pair of shoes you buy, they'll donate a pair to children in need. When working for Food4Africa, the company gave away 50,000 pairs to children in South Africa, protecting them from further infection and injury to their feet (Mossy Foot is a serious problem affecting communities) and allowing them to continue to get an education and attend classes. If enough people buy TOMS shoes, they're planning to donate 100,000 pairs in Ethopia this summer!!

The summer collection is inspired by traditional Agrentinean workmen's rope-soled shoes and the TOMS espadrilles are available in a range of lightweight fabric, prints and colours

The website does not currently ship to the UK (they're working on it though!) but are available in Selfridges and online at Karmaloop and Zappos.

So girls (and guys), get shopping and lets get children in need wearing shoes!!
