When we think of TOMS and its quintessential Alpargata silhouette – lightweight, slip-on shoes made for frolicking in the sand – we think Summer (with a capital ‘S’).  

It comes as no surprise that the brand’s origins are firmly rooted in the buzzy beach town of Venice, California, and that those postcard boardwalk stalls and sunset skies are the main muse of its latest offering. Name-checking its stomping ground, The Venice Collection reimagines the iconic Alpargatas in 14 limited-edition colours on textured heritage canvas, complete with a Riviera-stripe lining.

As is the manifesto of TOMS, every purchase comes with the feel-good factor (and we don’t just mean retail therapy). Via an initiative called ‘One for One’ in conjunction with 90 Giving Partners – including Children International, Save the Children and Magic Bus UK – for every pair you buy, a child in need will be given a suitable pair to help them in their specific climate and terrain.
