TOMS shoes--Are they comfortable? - January 17th 2010, 08:02 AM

TOMS shoes is a very phenomenal organization. Where each pair you buy, they will give a pair of shoes to a child in a 3rd world country. You can read about them on their website. Just google TOMS shoes.

ANYWAYS, has anyone ever worn a pair? I go to a music festival called Cornerstone every year and last year it seemed like everyone had a pair. I've been contemplating getting a pair, but I want to know if they are comfortable before I decide. So if you have, let me know!!

I think they look a little frumpy, but I tried on a pair and they seemed comfortable. The foot bed is pretty flat, which is a problem if you want HEALTHY footwear, but most people don't care much about that (and you can put in soles).

They are a little expensive, and even when you factor in that you're buying two pairs of shoes, one for you, one for the needy--still 20 bucks for a canvas slipper? Your call. I think it's not an ahhmazing shoe, but there's worse out there. I like it more than converse, which is the only other mainstream canvas shoe I've worn. Make sure they look ok on your foot.

Say, if I got TOMS as a gift, I would try to wear them as a casual summer rec shoe. They aren't going to survive crazy Chicago weather, but you know that

I hadn't heard of this before, they do look comfy, although they'd be super hard to match with an outfit.

they actually are pretty comfy however i got mine and about 2 months later they started to rip...idk maybe it's because i'm kinda hard on shoes to and i wore them basically everywhere.
