Stunt-pulling, celebrity collab-loving shoe line TOMS is up to more good. On the heels of hitting the 10 million mark of donated shoes, the Venice-based footwear and eyewear brand has announced they'll be spreading their do-gooder ways in the U.S. for the first time ever.
TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie says he expects to have given away one million of pairs of his classic canvas slip-ons to kids in over 35 states by 2014. In addition, the brand will be pairing up adults with the gift of sight in three states. Feelin' their one-for-one philanthropic philosophy? Shop the brand's print-happy fall collection here.
