The TOMS Wedding Collection is a great option for the bride and groom who want comfort and to do a ‘good deed’ without blasting it (even though I’m not sure why you wouldn’t want to tell people). If you don’t know the story, in 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village 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. To date, TOMS has given over one million pairs of new shoes to children through giving partners around the world.
After an extremely successful regular shoe line, they have branched out to include a wedding collection and I hear a collective sigh from brides around the world. Oh, maybe that was me. There are shades of glitter, and grosgrain to match just about every bridal dress option. The guys have totally manly leather and velvet that will complete their outfit handsomely. No matter what they both have comfort and isn’t that the way you want to start your new life together…in comfort?
At an affordable price you could even buy them as your wedding gift for your bridal party. What makes them a great eco-shoe company is that large selections of their shoes are both Made from Recycled and Sustainable Materials AND/OR Vegan (so there are no animal products in the shoes at all). OF course there are some that are leather (men’s).
A future trend (especially for summer weddings), more and more couples will be wearing TOMS, not only because it’s a company that cares about children, but because they care about comfort for everyone.
