Do you know TOMS shoes?

TOMS shoes is a great initiative. For every pair that is sold one pair is given away for free to children in need. Below a video about the first TOMS shoe drop in Argentinia.

Great example to see the strength of a meaningful wish and sense of purpose. Also a very innovative businnesmodel.

Looks like shoes are a great product to follow current changes in the global marketplace. Couple of months ago I wrote about Veja which is using ecological input, fair trade and respect for workers to create change.

Recently I also saw a great innovative shoe called Skins. Very innovative! See the video below

Thinks about it.. no need to fit shoes anymore.
