History of the TOMS Baja Slip-On
Hailing from Playa Del Ray in California, founder Blake Mycoskie established TOMS footwear in 2006 after a trip from Argentina. From there he found out about alpargatas, a canvas slip-on shoe used by local polo players. Mycoskie brought the idea of the alpargatas back to the States and used it as the prototype for TOMS’ first shoe designs.
Today, the brand is so successful that their product line grew from only footwear to now including apparel, bags, eyewear, and coffee. But their shoes remain as the brand’s most fundamental product.
The TOMS Baja Slip-On is one of the company’s latest footwear offering. It is a part of the Topanga collection and crafted from vegan-friendly materials. Although most of this shoe’s colorways are crafted from the heritage canvas material, note that materials still vary. The brand has made it easier for consumers by including a specific colorway’s material in its name.
