Design Your Own TOMS Shoes

by This is Carrie on May 10, 2011

Armed with a few fabric markers, the girls had a great time making turning their plain black TOMS shoes into one-of-kind wearable art.

As letter-obsessed kindergartener, Pumpkin loved the idea of having the entire alphabet on each shoe.  And Princess, my “peace and love” girl, knew exactly how to make her shoes her own.

If you haven’t checked out the new & improved Tiny Toms shoes, be prepared to fall in love. The only thing that makes me feel a little better about buying a pair of $30 kids shoes is knowing that for every pair purchased (adult or kids), TOMS gives a new pair of shoes to a child in need.

**Disclaimer: These two pairs of TOMS shoes were provided free of charge to my girls after attending a TOMS shoes media event but This Mama has always loved TOMS and their efforts as a company to make the world a better place.  To date, they have given away over one million shoes to kids in need and has inspired countless other companies to find ways to incorporate giving into what they do.

OH cool! I didn’t know they made Tiny TOMS! I want some now for my sons. Meanwhile, can I link my blog to show you the ones I painted? If you don’t like it, just remove my post. Thanks though!

LOVE this idea! I’ve looked at TOMS a million times and never seen a pair that really caught my eye… well I just went to look again and they have vegan ones in slate now… Hmm… :)

hello I am looking for someone to design some Ohio State Toms I want them to be Black with OH- on one shoe and IO on the other also a few buckeyes on them. Also I would like some sayings on them like ” how firm thy friendship ” and maybe a few more in red and gray writing. Was wondering on a price. and I also have a picture if I could send it somewhere.
