I just wish they'd make their old shoes again.. that new ones are cheap and don't fit the same. I think that's more of the reason why their failing.. but what do I know, I'm just the guy that bought them religiously until they changed, I don't know anything..

Honestly I still purchase toms. I recently bought bubble tea ones lol. The shoes remind me of ballet shoes which I love becuase im a dancer and they are so comfortable.

Toms are very comfortable. I don't care about "trends". I will always have a pair of Toms in my shoe rotation.

You purchased the left or right Tom then got the other foot for free?

I have worn my Toms so much because they are so comfortable that they are falling apart. I'm waiting until they are unwearable before they are thrown out.

One-upping on the amount of donated product. Now, THAT's the kind of competition that we should have more of!

I actually really like the Toms shoes, they're timeless and cool. But they're way too expensive for me. I wonder if it would regain a big chunk of the market if it lowered its prices.

I bought 1, wore it once, never wore it again ‘cause it looks gay, uncomfortable on my feet. A few years later, that store I bought from closed...

I still swear this is the only shoe I’ll wear traveling. Multiple European trips now with just these on my feet! So comfy and light weight.

I have bobs, they donate to dog charities. Much better than actually putting local shoe makers out of business

Perfect product? No! I ordered 3 pairs and got none of them on my feet. They didn’t fit. My feet are not big, wide, or weirdly shaped. They’re normal. I couldn’t get them on.

Those are ugly shoes on such high price. I would rather donate money instead of buying them so that Toms can donate them to someone. Those ugly shoes are not going to put food and buy medicines.

So white man stole native's design and ran with it without giving them a penny. I hope he rots in hell with guilt.

More than half a billion in the name of charity.
This is the biggest scam.

The first time I heard from the brand over here in Germany was in 2020 when I bought a pair of sandals 😄 never knew they were a thing before that and that they sold this „garden-work shoe“.

I stopped buying them as they are so poorly made and not worth the price. Also, I spent a great deal of time in Africa and never came across one pair of Toms ANYWHERE! As much as I would spent money to help those in need, I will not do it through the Toms organization.

Well I called it success cause it’s good start for corporate give back to society, and other brands follow it, it’s good. But I never receive the “ give one “ in my place :(
