I was telling you in an earlier post (thanks again to Elaine) about TOMS Shoes. Well I’m a man of my word and yesterday I went and got a pair. I couldn’t actually buy them on line, but I got them in BT2 in Dublin, and they have a huge list of distributors.
They come in a really small box and all over the box are reminders that they will be giving a pair of shoes for every pair you buy. The box is nice and small, about the size of the width of a pair of shoes, which is nicely environmentally firendly. They also give you a great TOMS Shoes flag and a hanger for your shoes….again reminding you about why you bought them. They are incredibly comfortable as well. Take a look at the pictures I took of the box and what comes in it. I’m already working out what my next pair will be.
On a bit of a side note….I owe an apology to JP from The Ray Foley Show on Today FM (nice blog)
I noticed he was in the same shop when I was buying the shoes, and well I am so fond of these shoes that I decided to take the opportunity to, well practically, pounce on the guy! “Hi there….listen I just bought these shoes” At this stage, as I handed him the flier I had picked up, I think he thought I was going to try sell them back to him!
“Anyway” I managed to continue “I think they are really cool, everytime you buy a pair they give a pair to kids who need them”...Ok so he is still looking confused and probably thinking that I am a complete nut job…”Well I just thought you could talk about them on the show”. Yes there you have it, I’m now telling people on radio shows how to do their jobs!! Well I’m just enthused by this product, so sorry JP.
Anyway, here are those pictures I promised.
