The classic Alpargata on a rope-wrapped sole with a navy canvas upper. Striped side panels and an elasticized “v” make this casual casual shoe the perfect style for school, work or play.
The brand of rope-soled sandals TOMS was founded in 2006 by the american Blake Mycoskie, further to his trip in Argentina. In front of so much disadvantaged children walking barefoot, Blake has imagined an easy solution : take as inspiration the alpargatas shoes (traditionnal rope-soled of Argentina), to reinvent it in a modern and creative way. For each pair of shoes sold, there is one gived to a child !
