Our Story

We’ve always been in business to improve lives.

In 2006, TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie pioneered the One for One® model—giving away one pair of shoes for every pair sold, supporting larger health, education, and community development programs through strategic partnerships.

Today we give ⅓ of profits for grassroots good. Since the beginning of TOMS, our community has made a positive impact on over 100,000,000 lives—and we’re far from finished. Take a look at some of the highlights over the years.

Our Iconic Alp

From its origin in Spain, to its adoption in Argentina, the espadrille or the alpargata has always been a shoe of the people - designed to throw on and get after it.
