o hai! See these boots? They're from a company called Tom's. They are vegan, with a canvas upper and rubber sole.
Tom's also donates one pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair you buy! [More about their practices here.]
And more about the other ways they try to raise awareness here.
The boots are $98, which isn't an outrageous price for a god pair of sturdy boots at all.
Somehow I have difficulty pulling the trigger to buy a pair for myself. I'm actually not sure I've spent $98 on a pair of shoes or boots...ever...but it's a good cause, so I'd do it in a heartbeat. If I could imagine myself wearing them, but I haven't made the leap yet. I feel like I would look like the mummy, all wrapped up in canvas. And what keeps the canvas from slipping down your leg, even with the velcro closure.
I wish their site showed pictures of people wearing these! The disembodied mummy legs kind of freak me out.
So, do any of you own these boots? Are they cute, and do you love them? Would you be willing to post a picture of yourself actually wearing them?
