2 reasons not to buy

  • Though generally pleased with the shoe, the only drawback that one noticed was the comically long shoelaces.
  • One TOMS TRVL LITE Low review stated disappointment that the left heel squeaks on every step.

Bottom line

Those that are not genuinely familiar with the brand would be delighted to know that there are more sneaker options available. The TOMS TRVL LITE Low may be another canvas pair, but its design deviates from the slip-on that the TOMS brand has been known for. While basic-looking, its versatility, performance, and comfort are truly enjoyed by many.

We do have the saying "If the shoe fits." Even though those words can sometimes have a negative meaning, it doesn't apply with the TOMS canvas women’s and men's TRVL LITE Low sneakers. Offered in sizes 7-14 Medium for men and 5-12 for women , users need not think of sizing up or down because these shoes indeed fit. The lace-up closure will come in handy for the customization of tightness. 

The ubiquity of minimalist sneakers shows that it is not merely a trend that goes off after a season. Pared down to the minimum, these canvas low-top shoes doesn't translate to boring and bland. 

The great thing about canvas and low-tops is that they can be styled in various ways. Shorts and light-washed jeans match the laid-back look that this piece exudes but when paired with a dressier shirt will also serve as an exciting contrast. 

Don't be fooled by its look. Toms TRVL LITE Low is also a comfortable one that is a worthy inclusion in one's sneaker rotation. Its footbed is covered and molded with cork to accommodate the shape of the feet. It goes complementary with its cushioning system that offers responsiveness and flexibility. 

Many footwear companies constructed their brand from a strong sports background, but TOMS has a different story to tell. Ex-Amazing Race contestant, Blake Mycoskie, found a spark while traveling in Argentina the start of the brand. Other than their shoe, the alpargatas, the image of children growing up without shoes devastated him. From this, he built TOMS, from a simple concept "Shoes for a Better Tomorrow," which later on evolved to "Tomorrow's shoes." 

Each item sold promises another pair to a child in need. From Argentian footwear, the brand later diversified while retaining its commitment to a child in need. One of its releases is the TOMS TRVL LITE Low shoes, a lightweight sneaker that vows all-day comfort and long-lasting durability. 

  • The outsole of these TOMS sneakers has a wavy pattern which provides maximum traction.
