When I first skimmed the name of these shoes TOMS “Inspire Be the Change Flat” for some odd reason (and remember my eyes are still a bit fuzzy from Lasik enhancement surgery), I thought of “changing a flat tire” (my friend just had a flat) and figured these shoes were made of recycled tires, thus inspiring good for the environment, blah blah blah.
Maybe I do still need reading glasses. The “Be the Change” is from one of Gandhi’s most inspirational quotes and is repeated all over the shoe, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” No recycled tires involved. Just a soft suede footbed and textured EVA sole, available in Black on White or White on Black. And comfortable to boot.
And the best part? For every pair of these shoes purchased (they are only $42 from ShopBop.com plus free shipping), Toms will give a pair of shoes to a child in need! So saving a child sounds like a better choice for the environment to me. Buy yours now!
