TOMS shoes can be seen on the feet of San Franciscans throughout the city. The company’s mission involves a simple compassionate principle. With the purchase of a pair of TOMS shoes, which retail from $45 to $85, founder Blake Mycoskie donates a pair of shoes to a child in need. A large shipment of TOMS shoes will be coming to USF’s campus on Tuesday, December 8th.
The USF Politics Society will host an event where students who have prepaid and preordered TOMS shoes can decorate them. There will also be food and disc jockey. Students will also be able to learn more about the company and their mission to donate over 300,000 pairs of shoes before the end of the year.
The Politics Society received funding through ASUSF’s super fund, which distributes additional money from student activity fees. As Superfund subsidized about half of the cost of each pair of shoes, the Politics Society has to cap the amount of participants at 100 students. Thus each student who signed up and prepaid will receive their shoes at the discounted price of $20.
