Inspired by children he befriended while traveling the world, Blake Mycoskie founded TOMS in 2006—a company that matches every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes for a child in need. Sunglasses followed in 2011 using the same business model: for every pair purchased, TOMS provides prescription glasses, medical treatment or sight-saving surgery. One for One®.
TOMS Shoes is a trailblazer in the movement to create goods that also do good in the world. Since its founding in 2006 the company has donated more than 93 million pairs of new shoes to children in need. For every pair sold—including classic Alpargata slip-ons and great-looking sneakers—a child receives a pair of durable shoes that fit their feet properly. Nordstrom proudly supports the TOMS One for One business model by offering TOMS shoes for men and women. There are plenty of TOMS styles to choose from: our collection of TOMS women's shoes includes slingback wedges as well as sandals in both heeled and flat designs. TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie, an avid world traveler, envisions a future full of social-minded businesses and consumers.
