The TOMS Carlo can be acquired in US men’s sizes, from 7 to 14. There are some who warned that the low-top runs large. Subtracting a half up to a full size from the wearer’s regular measurements is recommended.
The low-top TOMS Carlo is available in pig suede, heritage canvas, and denim. Each of these materials has its own color schemes, which amounts to plenty of choices. Despite being regarded as versatile by wearers, it would be best to utilize the Carlo during casual walks, summer strolls, or while traveling as to maximize its breathable upper and lightweight feel.
For underfoot support and comfort, the TOMS Carlo’s insole is made from Ortholite high-rebound cushioned footbed.
Blake Mycoskie, a businessman from Texas, started his shoe company Toms in 2006 after returning from a trip in Argentina. He got his inspiration by observing polo players that wear alpargatas, which is a type of canvas slip-on shoes. The alpargatas is essentially the blueprint of TOMS' first releases. Since its inception up to the present time, the company's base of operations is in Playa Del Rey, California.
TOMS has been lauded by the community for its philanthropic efforts. Labeled as One for One, every shoe purchased will also grant a pair to a child in need. The company is also known for doing its part against animal products by manufacturing vegan sneakers. One of the brand’s lifestyle shoes, the Toms Carlo, is offering a vegan-friendly construction.
