TOMS Carmel History

TOMS, a for-profit shoe manufacturing company based in California, was founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie. It is famous for selling shoes under the One for One business model. For every pair of Toms shoe sold, a child in an underdeveloped country also gets a pair for free. 

Initially, the company sold simple, espadrille-inspired canvas shoes. During their first year, 10,000 pairs of shoes were sold. Today, more than 6 million pairs of shoes were already sold. Consequently, 6 million pairs of shoes were also given to children in developing countries. 

TOMS is also known for making Vegan-friendly shoes. One of them is the TOMS Carmel. Inspired by the coastal towns in California, this sneaker has a 70s vibe and a low-top profile. It is an easy-going sneaker that is an ethical choice for everyday casual wear during the warmer days of spring.
