Good news for TOMS fans, as from now on you can find your Toms shoes and sun-glasses in the heart of the Jordaan area where the first European store opened its doors. Blake Mycoskie is the Founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS. He is also the person behind the idea of One for One, a business model to help a person in need with every product purchased. If you buy a pair of TOMS shoes, TOMS will give a pair of shoes to a person in need. I love this business model and was happy to accept TOMS invitation to have a sneak peek at the store.
A simple idea has grown into a global movement: TOMS Shoes has provided over 10 million pairs of shoes to children since 2006, and TOMS Eyewear has restored sight to over 175,000 since launching in 2011. No coincidence Toms opened today! Today is also the 'One day without shoes' day, the annual day to encourage the world to go without shoes to bring global awareness to children's health and education. Find TOMS on Runstraat 13.
