I recently ordered a pair of TOMS shoes. You’ve probably seen the AT&T Wireless commercial that features TOMS (they give a free pair of shoes to a needy child for every pair sold). These shoes follow the current “barefoot revolution” which believes that the healthiest shoes for your feet/body are those with the least padding, sole, support, etc. Basically, let your feet do what nature intended. I thought TOMS would make a great post-ride shoe – let the feet “breath” after being in tight cycling shoes for 4 hours.
I’ve been really happy with the shoes. They are insanely comfortable and are slightly less casual than wearing sandals or flip flops. In fact, they have become my “go-to” comfortable shoes for casual days in the office (which is any day that ends in “y”).
It’s also nice to spend the money with a company that is doing some good, as you can see from the video below.
