News: TOMS x Eastern Congo Initiative

Founded in 2006 by American traveller Blake Mycoskie, TOMS matches every pair of shoes it sells with a new pair given to a child in need. It has also since expanded its ‘One for One’ policy to eyewear, which channels proceeds towards giving sight to those in need around the world.

TOMS is now proud to announce its latest collaboration with Eastern Congo Initiative; an advocacy and grant-making initiative founded by Ben Affleck, which works with and for the people of the Eastern Congo. They’ve teamed up to create a limited edition collection of shoes inspired by Congolese textiles, with two styles available for men and one for women. £3 from each pair goes towards ECI’s programs for the region, and will provide a local child in need with a pair of new shoes.

Available online from June 6th, prices start at £70.
