History of the TOMS Sunset Slip-On
Founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie, TOMS is one of the socially responsible companies based in California. The company name evolved from the original “Shoes for Tomorrow Project.” Mycoskie initially enlisted the help of some Argentinian shoemakers to produce 250 pairs to be sold in the US with the intention of giving away a pair of shoes for every pair sold. Thus, the One For One business model was born.
In their 10th year, TOMS has sold over 60 million pairs of shoes. Consequently, following the One For One model, more than 60 million pairs of shoes were also given away for free to children in developing countries.
The original TOMS shoe model looks like a modified espadrille but with a rubber outsole. As time passed, the company has released several other models which were designed based on various climates and ground conditions.
A pair of sneakers released by the brand with a distinct look comes in the form of the TOMS Sunset Slip-On. Its deconstructed upper and braided rope trim create an earthy charm that completes the shoe’s fresh, beachy vibe.
