New shoes you say? I hardly ever buy new shoes I either can’t find ones that are comfy enough or I just can’t justify the large amounts of money some of the shoes cost for the very short life they seem to live, however I have been looking for some slip on slip off type shoes to replace my old tatty vans which had seen better days, they had a massive hole in the bottom and my feet would get soaked every time I went outside when the floor was wet or damp, which in the UK is pretty much all the time, so they had to go.
I had looked at various options Vans being one of them but a lot of them were not vegan friendly, either using some form of leather in the shoe design or the manufacturing process of the shoe wasn’t vegan, I then found Toms, I had used them before buying my daughter a pair a couple of birthday’s ago the overall quality of the shoe felt good but of course I never got to wear them, they just wouldn’t fit my feet.
Not wanting to get something plane or a single colour I found these they looked perfect all be it a little bit expensive however they were vegan and Toms donate a pair of shoes to people in need for every pair sold which in my book is a winner.
So how do the shoes feel I hear you asking? The fit was perfect, not to small, not to big just perfect, in a way they don’t even feel like they are on your feet, not in a barefoot kind of way, though, more like a lightweight fit you don’t feel your feet carrying them when you walk, they are soft under foot too so when it is time to put in some steps they are ready for the challenge.
I would totally buy another pair, maybe in a different colour or a different design but if you are looking for a new shoe ready for Spring/Summer I don’t think you could go wrong with a pair of Toms.
