I purchased some Black/Black burlap Toms and after 2 weeks, they were fraying and after 3 weeks, the entire heel is separating from the rest of the shoe (sorry...both shoes). I hope the cute poor kid with the amazing smile (who was surely the beneficiary of my shoe purchase) doesn't do a lot of walking. Or maybe he can alternate walking in them for a few minutes and then carrying them for a few hours to ensure they last through the month.
