Splatter-Painted Shoes

One of a Kind, Hand-Painted, Socially Responsible Footwear from TOMS

— October 15, 2009 — Social Good
If you're concerned that eco-conscious is a synonym for ugly, fret no more with these hand-painted shoes from TOMS. Artists Gabe Lacktman and Tyler Ramsey have made limited-edition, hand-painted TOMS. These online web exclusives reflect Lacktman and Ramsey’s signature style of vibrant colors and unique textures. With every pair of shoes you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need--one for one.

TOMS eco-conscious, hand-painted shoes not only come in vegan-friendly varieties, but they also promote social change with the One for One charity. No buyer's remorse here--these are the ultimate feel good purchase. These hand-painted shoes are ultra-light and comfortable. The vegan-friendly footwear is made with recycled twill and materials, soft faux suede and recycled rubber blend soles.
