It's been around for a while, but it was only recently when my girlfriend and I bought into the awesomeness that is Tom's shoes. We just tried on the espadrille-inspired footwear this past weekend, and one fitting was all it took for us to see what all the fuss was about.
While the marketing proposition of the company giving a pair to a poor kid for every one you buy seems promising, it was really the simple looks of the shoe which had us smitten. You may have doubts at first, but just wait till you see those babies on your feet. They're unexpectedly flattering and oh so mothereffin' comfortable!
A lot of people seem to agree, since the ash pair I wanted didn't have my size already (very sad). To tell you the truth, my girlfriend and I were so pleased that we wanted to get matching pairs. Cheesy, I know. But damn it, try some Tom's on today and tell me you won't fall in love with 'em. Go ahead, I dare you!
