We love Toms shoes, not to mention its founder Blake Mycoskie, so we were thrilled to hear that he had been nominated for the Cooper-Hewitt People's Design Award this year-- Along with the Iphone! Mycoskie developed the shoe after a traditional Argentine design and vowed to give one pair to an Argentine child for each pair of Toms purchased. We think the shoes are both comfortable and chic, which has made them the footwear of choice for stylish do-gooders like Lauren Bush. Last year Mycoskie delivered over 8,000 pairs of shoes on a trip to Argentina and this year he's heading to Africa hoping to drop off 50,000 pairs. On the Toms website you can choose your fabric and color (we love the red and white striped) or you can stop by Bird in Brooklyn or even Urban Outfitters to pick up a couple of pairs--for $38 a pop. If you love these shoes as much as we do, don't forget to vote for Toms! --BRITT ABOUTALEB
