At Who’s Your? we’re shoe-aholics, so it will come as no surprise that we love TOMS! The label that matches every pair sold with a donation of shoes to a child in need. So, this Tuesday 16 April we’re ditching our Missoni flats to join the global movement of TOM’s One Day Without Shoes, which aims to raise awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child’s life. We encourage you to join us by putting yourself in someone else’s (lack of) shoes and walk around barefoot for a day to experience the difference that a pair of shoes can make to your day.
