Last week I was watching Donny Deutsch’s Big Idea, and he had on the founder of another shoe company called TOMS Shoes. Has anyone heard of this company? I hadn’t, but after hearing the story of how it was started and their cause to give a pair shoes to needy kid around the world with every purchase of their shoes I was inspired.
I went to the internet to find out more about TOMS Shoes and found a number of press mentions and YouTube videos that they put out. One of these videos was of what they call TOMS Shoe Drops where they went to Argentina in 2006 and put 10,000 shoes on kids feet who otherwise may not have had any.
I was so inspired by their founder Blake Mycoskie and what he is doing with TOMS Shoes I decided to start another fan blog site. TOMS Shoe Fans is similar to littlerubbershoes.com in that we will post various information about the shoes, company, and the people that love TOMS Shoes.
There is no way of knowing if TOMS will generate as big of following as Crocs, but if this is any indication I think they are well on their way.
If you have never heard of TOMS Shoes I challenge you to checkout the site and read the various blog posts and watch the related videos to get a better understanding of this company. I would also love to hear what Croc Fans think of the shoes and if you would consider buying a pair.
