The LA-based shoe maker, TOMS, is asking us to go “one day without shoes” to raise awareness of the millions in the world who go without adequate footwear, or none at all. For every pair of TOMS you purchase, the company will send a pair of their shoes to a child in need. Here are some One Day Without Shoes events happening in Seattle on Tuesday, April 10.
