With just a few days left of the countdown to Shark Week, we’re extra stoked about the new, limited edition Shark TOMS Shoes!
For those of you that have been with us while, you may already know that TOMS Founder & Chief Shoe Giver Blake spends a lot of time on boats. But his love of the water went to a whole new level last year when he had an expectedly moving experience at the Summit at Sea* conference in Florida…and now that experience is carrying over to a limited edition TOMS shoe!
While in Florida, Blake joined a team to go shark tagging. Each shark the team encountered received an electronic tag so researchers could track their migrations and movements, and provide data to research scientists at the University of Miami R.J. Dunlap Marine Conservation Program. With the intel provided by those tags, people can now follow the sharks on Google Earth. (Try it! It’s AWESOME!)
Learning about the impact this mysterious, and unfortunately dwindling species have on our ecosystem inspired Blake to want to create awareness and do more. Enter the newest addition to the TOMS line…the Shark Shoe.
These Vegan, limited edition Classics are lined with lots of shark silhouettes, and proceeds from each pair go to protect sharks and their environment. Plus, as always, with every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.
*Each year the Summit Series hosts invitation-only events that connect and inspire a new generation of leaders to succeed in business and life. Blake spoke about entrepreneurship at the 2011 gathering.
