In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie visited Argentina and found the children in parts of the country had no shoes to protect their feet.Â Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased in the 1st world with a pair of new shoes for a child in need. ‘One for One’.
Blake returned to Argentina with a group of family, friends and staff later that year with 10,000 pairs of free shoes, this was made possible by TOMS customers.
TOMS promote an annual ‘Day without shoes day’to raise awareness of their cause and this year JaguarShoes is proud to announce that we are co-hosting a party at dreambagsjaguarshoes as part of the annual festivities.
