We’re already big TOMS fans; their offbeat espadrille-inspired shoes are the perfect combination of looking good and doing good, since a child in need is given a pair of shoes for every one you buy.
But it gets better: TOMS is now getting in the sunglasses business.
The new line of TOMS eyewear
include chic retro sunglasses that are equal parts old school and
of-the-moment. No matter what your look, there’s a pair that will work
These are investment sunglasses, and while we think they’re worth the
investment just for the hip factor, you’re really buying more than just a

90% of the 284 million people in the world with vision impairments live
in poverty; having their sight back is a simple way to help them break
the cycle and make their way economically in the world. When you take
that into account, these shades are a bargain at any price. -Susan
TOMS sunglasses come in two unisex styles (a Wayfairer and an aviator) and
in a women’s Jackie O-inspired round frame. All styles are available in a
nice range of classic colors. You can see the entire collection — and read all about the One for One program — at TOMS.com.
