U Chic Approved: We Love TOMS!

By Megan O’Connell, Student at University of Wisconsin – Platteville

The TOMS shoes bandwagon is one I’ve recently hopped on. Not only are these shoes extremely comfortable, but also they come in tons of different colors, patterns and styles and, even better, they support a good cause. What more could a girl ask for in a pair of shoes?

According to the TOMS website, “In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.”

I received my first pair as a birthday gift from my boyfriend. Many reviews say the shoes fall apart easily, and I was honestly looking forward to this so I had an excuse to buy a new pair, but they’re holding up just fine.

Whether you’re attending your school's football game, going out with the girls for a night, going on a date or even getting married, there’s an adorable pair of TOMS waiting for you to don for any occasion!
