This week my tie-dyed pair of Toms arrived. Clearly I immediately put them on, laid on the floor and did the bicycle to show them off to Tommy. After happily wearing them around our condo all night, I inspected them a little further and discovered a tiny "made in China" stamp on their interior. SAY WHAT?
Maybe I am confused, but this goes against everything I thought the company (which I had convinced myself was a non-profit) stood for. I mean, I love their AT&T commercial! I am so over hating things because they become popular!
But, this does lead me to wonder, is "One to One" a true mission or just a VERY CLEVER marketing ploy? Are they doing a "shoe drop" to the Chinese sweat shops? Either way, it's working.
