By now I'm sure your familiar with TOMS. You can't make it down a single Manhattan block without spotting a pair or two.
Leo sat next to founder Blake Mycoskie on a flight a few years ago and heard first hand how he was inspired to create TOMS Shoes when he met children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. TOMS matches every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need, One for One™.
To date, TOMS has given over one million pairs of new shoes to children through giving partners around the world.
Earlier this summer, TOMS launched its second One for One™ product, TOMS Eyewear, to help save and restore sight to people in need through medical treatment, prescription eyeglasses and sight-saving surgery, administered by its first Sight Giving Partner, Seva Foundation (www.seva.org).
You can find the new line at TOMS.com, Nordstrom and other select retailers across the US. They come in three iconic styles (Aviator, Oversized, and Wayfarer) and a variety of colors that are sure to look universally cool:

Though I'd be happy to walk a mile in any of these new Fall styles:
