Good news! I think I’ve finally narrowed it down to what flats I want to buy. I first heard the name TOMS on a blog I follow and I didn’t know what they were. After I saw some at little burgundy last week, I did a bit more research.
It seems that for every pair of shoes sold, the company donates a pair to children in need. At an affordable price (starting at 40$ & up) and with their reputation as being extremely comfortable, I think the choice is obvious.
