Replica TOMS Shoe Donations Might Not Be Doing Any Good

In which the company donates one pair of shoes to children around the world for every pair of shoes sold. It’s a tough take, calling the brand and other for-profit companies who have “similar buy one, give one” programs the “charitable equivalents of yes men” and suggesting that the message behind TOMS transforms an “ordinary shoe-buying experience…into a magical fairy tale.”’s Amanda Taub describe writes:

But the truth is that while that kind of messaging is evidently a great way to sell trendy replica shoes, or to otherwise raise money, it’s not a very good way to do charity. At best, it’s inefficient: It focuses on programs that waste your hard-earned cash by failing to do the most good per dollar. At worst, it promotes a view of the world’s poor as helpless, ineffective people passively waiting for trinkets from shoe-buying Americans. While the cheap toms shoes themselves probably won’t lead to any kind of disaster, that worldview can lead to bad policies and real, serious harm.

Here’s the evidence that shoe donations from TOMS might not be helping children in need: an outside research team reported that the shoes replica weren’t making a noticeable difference in kids’ lives, according to “The bad news is that there is no evidence that the shoes outlet exhibit any kind of life-changing impact, except for potentially making them feel somewhat more reliant on external aid,” professor Bruce Wydick wrote in a blog post this spring, after studying the TOMS shoe donation program in El Salvador.

The team also found “a small negative impact on local markets” caused by the TOMS giveaways, in which local shoe vendors sold just a few less replica toms shoes because of the donations. Taub suggests that TOMS efforts aren’t getting to the root of the poverty problem, and consumers would be better off donating cash as a more effective way to help.

But Wydick does have positive things to say about TOMS and the company’s mission, writing:

Replica TOMS is perhaps the most nimble organization any of us has ever worked with, an organization that truly cares about what it is doing, seeks evidence-based results on its program, and is committed to re-orienting the nature of its intervention in order to maximize results. In response to children saying that the canvas loafer isn’t their first choice, they now often give away sports shoes outlet uk. In response to the appropriateness of their replica shoes toms in different contexts, in Mongolia they now give away these cute little kids’ snow boots. In response to the dependency issue, they now want to pursue giving the shoes to kids as rewards for school attendance and performance. Moreover, we are impressed with TOMS outlet commitment to transparency.

Lululemon Athletica and Toms outlet stores coming to Houston

The Bayou City’s first Lululemon Athletica and Toms outlets will open at Houston Premium Outlets in Cypress this summer.

M&J Powersports, which already had a location in Lake Jackson’s Brazos Mall, also opened a store in the outlet mall July 15. The mall’s owner, Indiana-based Simon Property Group (NYSE: SPG), announced the new additions July 14.

Vancouver, Canada-based Lululemon Athletica (Nasdaq: LULU) is a yoga-inspired, technical athletic apparel brand that has experienced a surge in popularity over the years. Its first standalone store opened in Vancouver in 2000, and the company went public in 2007. Last year, the company announced it planned to grow revenue from about $2.1 billion in 2015 to more than $4 billion by 2020, Fortune reported at the time. Adding stores was one of the key pillars of the company’s growth plan.

Lululemon’s 3,802-square-foot store at Houston Premium Outlets will be next to Perry Ellis and across from Fossil. It will sell a variety of athletic wear, including performance shirts, shorts and pants, as well as lifestyle apparel and yoga accessories. It’s expected to open in late summer.

The 2,689-square-foot store will be next to Banana Republic and will carry women’s, men’s, youth and tiny footwear, eyewear and bags. It will be one of the company’s first outlet stores in Texas, according to Simon.

Toms is known for its “One for One” business model, in which the company provides cheap toms shoes, sight, water, safe birth and bullying prevention services to people in need. Entrepreneur Blake Mycoskie of Arlington, Texas, started the company in 2006.

“We’re thrilled to announce these first-to-market shopping destinations will join Houston Premium Outlets retail lineup,” General Manager Elaine Devine said in Simon’s press release. “The addition of these brands is a direct response to the desires of our shoppers, and we look forward to witnessing their continued success firsthand.”

This replica New Shoe Brand Has Interchangeable Covers Designed to Match ‘1 Million Outfits’ Instantly

Imagine if one pair of replica shoes could match every outfit in the closet. San Francisco-based fashion technology company Trooper America aims to provide the perfect solution by creating a fully interchangeable slip-on shoe.

Switch, designed in ultrasoft premium cotton, allows wearers to instantly change the shoe’s color, style, fabric and look, making for a versatile style that can match an endless combination of looks.

Created by brothers Ben and Michael Kaiser, Switch employs patent-pending technology that allows the wearer to simply zip on an interchangeable top to match different outfits. Starting with four top colors — red, blue, cream and gray — the tops can be applied to two base colors: cream and gray.

This makes for an unlimited amount of possibilities, which, according to the creators, means that “one pair of replica toms shoes could match 1 million different outfits, instantly.”

“We chose Switch to be a slip-on to be reminiscent of Toms comfort-epitomizing slip-on line. However, we wanted Switch to be more functional for activity than a normal slip-on, similar to that of a Nike running shoe, which is why we chose an ultracushioned jogger sole,” said Ben Kaiser, who also serves as the designer for the cheap toms shoes.

“And last but not least, we wanted Switch’s fabric to provide the most comfort possible. Not only does Switch have a double ankle padding of plush cotton, but our interior, exterior and insoles were woven with ultrasoft cotton.”

Switch is intended not only to be versatile but to help wearers save money and reduce closet space by buying fewer replica shoes.

The interchangeable slip-on is also beneficial for travelers, who would be able to opt for one pair of replica shoes on trips.
