    I've seen just one other person wear Tom's in public and they look good, but was wondering your guys' opinions/experiences with them. I will need to buy them online and am thinking of getting these beige one's:

    And one thing that's been bugging me is if they look worse on people with big feet, as I'm a size 13. Any advice?

    they're probably a little hippy-ish for most folks here... i probably wouldn't waer them out of the house although they look rather comfortable as slippers.

    They kinda look like a Chinese food take out box for your feet.

    for every pair you buy another pair is donated to a less fortunate individual. I think it's a worthy cause, and some of them are actually cool enough to wear in public.

    I'd rather send a donation. While I'm all for the worthy cause, the shoes are not to my taste.

    If I were to buy a pair, that would be two pair going to the less fortunate because, the pair I purchased would be going straight to Goodwill! Though, a reasonable question might be, why would we want to do that to the less fortunate(!)?? [​IMG]

    Sorry to resurrect this thread, but I keep seeing this ad and it annoys me. How f***ing pretentious is it to give slippers to kids in need?

    Could you imagine being a hungry kid somewhere, just wanting a hot can of soup or something, and some vegan California hipster douchebag shows up and gives you a pair of slippers? You can't eat slippers.

    I don't know the specifics of Tom's Shoe's program, but groups like Samaritan's Feet distribute shoes nationally and internationally to help prevent infections and injuries.

    You are right! Malnourishment is the #1 villan. 5 years ago you didn't see the orange streaks in kids hair from malnourishment but it is coming back strong in SE Asia, and has always been in Brazil. One of the reason there is so much lawlessness in Brazil is many of the favela dudes are big and brain dead when they reach their late teens from a poor diet when they were tots. Plus the hungry young often sniff glue to kill the hunger pain and add to the brain damage. Often the irreversable diet brain damage happens in the first 5 years of life. The greedy Chinese merchant class doubling the price of rice and other commodities on their helpless population is a cause along with so much corn, soybeans, etc now going into biofuels because of the tax credits people get. President Menem's selling off of Argentina caused children to starve in the #1 food-rich country in the world. In SE Asia you see grown girls with splayed toes from running around barefoot on the farm in the province when young. You also see dark marks on each buttock from sitting on their heels when they were kids as that was their only "furniture". Their foot troubles are far less serious than the permanent brain damage caused by a poor diet in the early years. Sorry, I know this is a fashion site and this is my last outburst but this watching this dude get rich with his "save a kid by buying horrid overpriced bedroom slippers" with videos of his white intern kids with dreadlocks walking barefoot carrying a Tom's Shoes flag has me sick to my stomach.
