History of the TOMS Carlo

Blake Mycoskie, a businessman from Texas, started his shoe company, TOMS, in 2006 after returning from a trip to 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.
