Toms was started by a Texan entrepreneur named Blake Mycoskie in 2006, who spent some time in Argentina and noticed two things. Firstly, that the local people were all wearing Spanish style alpargatas, or espadrilles in Catalan, a flat slip-on shoe made of canvas or cotton with a rope sole, which he began to wear himself. Secondly, he noticed that a lot of the local children were not wearing shoes as they ran past him in the street, and he decided to start a company selling alpargatas shoes to the US market, similar to the Argentine style, and that for every shoe sold would give a free pair to a child in Argentina. Mycoskie commissioned 250 shoes to be made in Argentina and started official sale sof the shoes from May 2006, but after the Los Angeles Times ran an article on his company, it recieved 9 times the number of orders its available stock could supply. From this promising beginning, Toms sold 10,000 shoes in its first year of sales, and now supplies shoes to over 500 retailers all round the world. The company has now expanded to other developing countries, and by 2012 had given 2 million pairs of free shoes to children.
Toms now manufactures a range of casual shoes, sunglasses and bags for men and women, as well as a range of products for children. Though they have their own online sales platform, they primarily sell to department stores and other ecommerce retailers, the location of which can all be found on their website's "Store Locator". Since succesfully launching the ranges of eyewear and bags, they have also recently launched their own brand of coffee beans, which will be distributed among cafes, though only currently in the US.
