"there are all these beautiful women in argentina who are married to the polo players, but they get neglected during the polo season. so you see all of these lovely ladies hanging out together in the bar. the idea for the wrap boot came from that. design a boot that looks like a bandage wrap on the polo-pony's leg, so they can get more attention from their polo-playing husbands. and i tell you," assures toms founder blake mycoskie, "the boot really looks sexy."
toms is known for their commitment to people in less fortunate countries, and gives one pair of shoes to a person who really needs one for each one that is sold.
