I LOVE LOVE LOVE the mission behind TOMS Shoes, but can’t help wishing the shoes were cuter. They’re not as bad as Crocs (can anything be??), but I can’t get my grandfather’s house slippers out of my head whenever I see these:
Personally, if I had the money, I’d buy ten pairs of these shoes just to provide ten pairs of shoes to children in need around the world and support TOMS mission…but I’m not sure I’d wear them.
And what about these?
Sadly, the first thing I thought when I saw these was that finally, I’ve found a pair of boots that will fit my calves. But the more I thought about it, the more trouble they seemed. I can’t imagine they’ll stay put very well with a lot of movement, and they probably won’t work over jeans. But when you take a look at them on, with some outfits, they don’t look so bad:
I’d love to see these in real life and with more outfits, but I still don’t think I’ll be buying a pair for myself; I just don’t think they’ll be flattering on me.
What do you think? Are TOMS Shoes fugly or fashionable??
