>MARC vs. TOM
Marc by Marc Jacobs are now selling TOMS?? Not quite.. they’re now selling a knock off, “Traditional Canvas Shoe From Argentina” for $15! It’s a great deal, and we do love Marc, but I’m not sure how I feel about this.
The thing is, these shoes are cute, yeah, but aren’t really as cute as they are trendy. These simple Argentinian shoes were made popular by TOMS in 2006 because for every pair you buy, TOMS gives a pair to a child in need. So great.
They’re a love-it or hate-it style, but they’ve grown on me and definitely look better when tried on.
TOMS are unisex and start at $42. The corduroy pair above are $48, but if you go through other retailers, I think I’ve seen them run for as high as $65. That means buy through the TOMS website because Zappos doesn’t have them!
