One of the top items on my List of Things to Buy While In the States is a pair of Tom's.  I know I'm late to the game on this, but in spite of the fact that everyone raves about them and they give away a pair of shoes to kids in need for every pair you purchase, I always just sort of thought they were glorified espadrilles or what we used to call 'chinese shoes' when I was a kid.  But then recently I tried on a friend's pair, and I was instantly seduced.  These bad boys are beyond comfortable; they are like little attachable clouds of support for your feet!  So I'm getting some.  For sure.  The question now is, which ones?

Something basic:

Or something striped:

more options and a special Toms collaboration after the jump...

Something textured:

Or something with a heel:

Or how about something a bit more wintery and three times the price:

Yup, these last ones are a collaboration of Toms and The Row.  Believe it.  Wool and cashmere blend outer, lamb leather lining and suede insole.  Luxury Toms.

So, any of you out there have Toms?  Love them?  Hate them?  Live in them?  Die without them?  Anyone try the wedges?  Anyone willing to pay $150 for The Row versions?  Anyone have any advice on which ones to get

  1. I like Toms but my feet look awful in them. Like giant pillows!


Say what?
